Giveaway - Testimony by Anita Shreve

*** Winner - Denise ***

Testimony by Anita Shreve
Little, Brown and Company, 320 p, Fiction, ISBN: 9780316059862

At a New England boarding school, a sex scandal is about to break. Even more shocking than the sexual acts themselves is the fact that they were caught on videotape. A Pandora's box of revelations, the tape triggers a chorus of voices--those of the men, women, teenagers, and parents involved in the scandal--that details the ways in which lives can be derailed or destroyed in one foolish moment.

Writing with a pace and intensity surpassing even her own greatest work, Anita Shreve delivers in Testimony a gripping emotional drama with the impact of a thriller. No one more compellingly explores the dark impulses that sway the lives of seeming innocents, the needs and fears that drive ordinary men and women into intolerable dilemmas, and the ways in which our best intentions can lead to our worst transgressions.

  6. The current scandal with Miss California Carrie Prejean might make for a good book, or the former scandal with Miss USA Tara Conner. Seems like some of the pageant industry has gotten quite scandalous.

  16. This looks like a great book! I think the Eliot Spitzer hiring a prostitute scandal would be a good basis for a book!

  24. I think the scandal involving Tamika Antoinette Huston would make a good book. There should be more awareness for domestic violence.
