A northern light
Jennifer Donnelly
Teen Fiction DONNELL

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Donnelly weaves the fictional story of 16-year-old Mattie into the events of the Gilette murder case (also the inspiration of Dreiser's An American Tragedy). "The author's ability to recast the murder mystery as a cautionary tale for Mattie makes the heroine's pending decision about her future the greatest source of suspense," said PW's Best Books citation.
