When her best guy friend falls victim to a vicious hate crime, sixteen-year-old Cat sets out to discover who in her small town did it. Richly atmospheric, this daring mystery mines the secrets of a tightly knit Southern community and examines the strength of will it takes to go against everyone you know in the name of justice. Against a backdrop of poverty, clannishness, drugs, and intolerance, Myracle has crafted a harrowing coming-of-age tale couched in a deeply intelligent mystery. Smart, fearless, and compassionate, this is an unforgettable work from a beloved author. Praise for "Shine" Cat eventually uncovers the truth in a cliffhanging climax in which she confronts fear, discovers that love is stronger than hate and truly shines. Raw, realistic and compelling. "Kirkus Reviews " The page-turning mystery and Cat s inspiring trajectory of self-realization will draw readers in and give them plenty to ponder. "The Bulletin of the Center for Children s Books" Dramatic in both content and presentation." "Los Angeles"" Times" Myracle captures well the regret that many feel for things in their past about which they are ashamed. Cat s reflections on these moments are spot-on.
