Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There was a man. He had a knife. He attacked us down by the river.

It was just a harmless little lie.

Anna, Emma and Mariah concoct a story about why they're late getting home one night--a story that will replace their parents' anger with

concern. They just have to stand by it. No matter what. Suddenly the police are involved, and the town demands that someone be punished. And then there is the man who is arrested and accused of a crime that never happened.

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

Anna, Emma, and Mariah concoct a story about why they're late getting home one night--a harmless little lie. Suddenly the police are involved, and a man is arrested and accused of a crime that never happened.

Synopsis:

Best friends Emma, Anna, and Mariah are out doing something they shouldn't. They make up a story so they won't get in trouble at home. It seems like the easy way out. What happens next challenges their friendship, their community, their relationships with their families, and their sense of themselves.

Told in the voices of the three girls who must learn to live with the lies they tell, Harmless is a gripping and provocative novel full of startling turns and surprises.
