But, more than anything, John is determined to become a world-famous lie detector, almost at any cost. This spell-binding novel, by the acclaimed author of How the Light Gets In, is about John s obsessive and dangerous desire to see the truth, even as his family is threatened in countless ways.

This powerful, simple and enthralling story announces her arrival as a great writer.
