Be ONE of FIVE winners to win a copy of Myla Goldberg's
THE FALSE FRIEND

Five readers to correctly answer the Jen's Jewels trivia question will win a copy of Myla Goldberg's latest release, THE FALSE FRIEND.

THE FALSE FRIEND
Order Today

Leaders of a mercurial clique of girls, Celia and Djuna reigned mercilessly over their three followers. One after­ noon, they decided to walk home along a forbidden road. Djuna disappeared, and for twenty years Celia blocked out how it happened.

The lie Celia told to conceal her misdeed became the accepted truth: everyone assumed Djuna had been abducted, though neither she nor her abductor was ever found. Celia’s unconscious avoidance of this has meant that while she and her longtime boyfriend, Huck, are professionally successful, they’ve been unable to move forward, their relationship falling into a rut that threatens to bury them both.

Celia returns to her hometown to confess the truth, but her family and childhood friends don’t believe her. Huck wants to be supportive, but his love can’t blind him to all that contra­dicts Celia’s version of the past.

Celia’s desperate search to understand what happened to Djuna has powerful consequences. A deeply resonant and emotionally charged story, The False Friend explores the adults that children become—leading us to question the truths that we accept or reject, as well as the lies to which we succumb.
