Looking for JJ

What happens when kids kill? When she was ten, Alice did something so wicked that the whole world would hate her if they knew. Now she is sixteen – out of prison at last, with a new identity and a new life. Yet she’s branded as a killer, forced to live a lie. Can she ever leave the past behind? Topical and chillingly realistic, this is a book you cannot look away from. Anne Cassidy is the original queen of teen crime fiction. Read the book that launched her name.

Winner of the Booktrust Teenage Prize 2004.
