Stars for COMPLICIT!

We loooooved the Morris Award-winning CHARM & STRANGE by Stephanie Kuehn and now she's made us fans for life with her second book, COMPLICIT.

Two years ago, sixteen-year-old Jamie Henry breathed a sigh of relief when a judge sentenced his older sister Crazy Cate Henry to juvenile detention for burning down their neighbor’s fancy horse barn. The whole town did. But now Cate's out and she’s coming back for Jamie. Because more than anything, Cate Henry needs her little brother to know this one simple truth: She’s not the crazy one and never has been.

COMPLICIT has already received three rave starred reviews:

“Kuehn’s second novel, after her Morris Award–winning CHARM & STRANGE, powerfully examines how mental illness can turn into family tragedy that ripples far and wide beyond a single event. The prose is as hallucinatory as the madness Jamie seeks to uncover in a novel that’s tense and ambiguous from start to finish.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

Kuehn writes with the fleetness of a trained thriller author, blending past and present (not to mention psychology and action) with the same fluidity as in her Morris Award–winning debut CHARM & STRANGE. Her confidence is what’s so invigorating: every page makes a firm, surprising choice, whether you like it or not. Cate, naturally, is the main event, the alternatingly irrational, gentle, explosive, and enigmatic center of this fast, black whirlpool of a novel.” Booklist, starred review

“Alternating between past and present, Kuehn sustains the tension through first-person narration and revealing flashbacks. COMPLICIT ensnares readers from the first page with its surprising twists and revelations. Recommend it to fans of psychological thrillers.” — School Library Journal, starred review
