Looking for JJ
When a 10-year-old girl kills her best friend, she is convicted of manslaughter and locked away. Seven years later she is released on licence with a new identity.
In this brave and intelligent novel, Anne Cassidy explores a range of themes, questioning everything from the ethics of tabloid journalism to the outcome of ineffectual parenting. Asking more questions than it answers, this is a brilliant and disturbing piece of writing, that looks beyond the headlines and forces the reader to confront and question some of their own attitudes to contemporary issues.
