We are reading The Killing Woods by Lucy Christopher for January. Summary: Ashlee Parker is dead, and Emily Shepherd's dad is accused of the crime. A former soldier suffering from PTSD, he emerges from the woods carrying the girl's broken body. "Gone," he says, then retreats into silence.
What really happened that wild night? Emily knows in her bones that her father
is innocent -- isn't he? Before he's convicted, she's got to find out the
truth. Does Damon Hilary, Ashlee's charismatic boyfriend, have the answers? Or is
he only playing games with her -- the kinds of games that can kill?
