Hey, hey, hey! Welcome back to the Big Kids Book Club.
It’s Thursday, so what should we talk about today? How about new books!
Today we look at a book that’s either just been released or soon to be hitting shelves, but either way they should be on your wish lists!
Today’s book: You Can Trust Me by Gina Blaxill
Release Date: 07/04/2022
Tragedy hits a teenage New Year’s party…
When Alana’s best friend is found drowned in a pool, the forensic reports discover date-rape drug GHB in her blood. GHB from a drink Alana knows was meant for her. Despite the swirling rumours, the suspected group of boys seem untouchable.
To investigate, Alana allows herself to be pulled into their glittering orbit. But among shifting alliances, changing alibis and buried secrets, can she pinpoint which of the boys is responsible before she becomes their next target?
Perfect for fans of Holly Jackson, Karen McManus and Chelsea Pitcher, a bold feminist read with a pacy thriller plot that YA fans will love. Carnegie-nominated author Gina Blaxill looks head-on at privilege, bias and sexual assault in a way that will resonate with young adults today.
