Chrissie is eight and she has a secret: she has just killed a boy.  Twenty years later, adult Chrissie is a single mother, all she wants is for her daughter to have the childhood she herself was denied. People are looking for them, the past is catching up.

Nancy Tucker’s chilling novel challenges the reader to ruminate the question  : who deserves punishment and who deserves empathy?

‘Gripping…The voices of Chrissie and Julia reside deep in your skull: visceral and wicked, sad and wonderful, all at the same time.’ The New York Times

‘Genèse du crime, culpabilité et rédemption, voilà les sillons explorés par le magnifique roman de Nancy Tucker.’ La Voix du Nord
