Title: Testimony
Author: Anita Shreve

Grade: C
Rating: R

Summary: (From Barnes and noble) 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 Pandora's Box of revelations, the tape triggers a chorus of voices--those of the men, women, teenagers, and parents involved in the scandal--that details the ways in which lives can be derailed or destroyed in one foolish moment.

My thoughts: When Lexi reviewed this novel a while back I just knew I wanted to read this. Upon completion of this book I can honestly say it was not all that I hoped and expected it to be. The plot was very unique but the writing struck me as pure average. The way it bounced from person to person, present to past, was just obnoxious. It was not confusing but it was just weird. Overall an average book.

Recommendation: For fans of private school books with naughty kids.
