At a New England boarding school, a sex scandal is about to break. Even more shocking than the sexual acts themselves is the fact that they were caught on videotape.

A novel with some mystery and teens as they grow up. A very good novel.

Analysis of an emotional disaster that arises from a moment of teenage sexual experimentation. Great narrative skillfully written from multiple perspectives.

Anita Shreve has a remarkable ability to reveal the thoughts of her characters. I was nodding my head in agreement as she styled the thoughts of each character. I found the story realistic and heart wrenching. I loved it as I have loved her other works.

A profoundly sad story. Excellently written from the viewpoint of various characters.

A compelling novel that speaks to contemporary moral issues and the way Internet technology affects situations which in the past stayed local.
I've read it twice and recommned it highly.

Excellent writing and the subject matter is very relevant. I do wish that the character of the girl involved had been a little more fleshed out.

Not a fun read, but a good one.

Although this book has an interesting subject matter and the manner it is written (each chapter is a different person's perspective) is intriquing, the story itself left me feeling sad, almost to the point of wishing I hadn't read it! But the situation is realistic even if it is a sad story. I couldn't put the book down because I was so anxious for what was going to be revealed next! So, since that is a good indicator of a book's worth, I would recommend it. But be prepared for an unhappy ending...
