True Blue by Deborah Ellis
When Casey is arrested for murder, her best friend Jess is certain the police have made a terrible mistake. And she should know; after all, she and Casey were camp counselors together and both responsible for the little girl who disappeared. But even though the police have interrogated Jess more than once, they aren`t satisfied with her story. Even Casey`s lawyer won`t leave her alone. And at school, everyone is suddenly hanging on her every word. Does she continue to insist that Casey is innocent in the face of almost universal condemnation? Jess has to wait for the middle of the night before she can find some peace, riding her bike through the darkened streets of their small town...planning a move that will shock them all. In a fresh departure from her novels set in developing countries, awardwinning author Deborah Ellis brilliantly recreates the inner world of an emotionally confused teen who struggles to find the moral courage to remain loyal to a friend in need.
