Giveaway: Testimony by Anita Shreve



BOOK INFORMATION: Testimony By Anita Shreve (taken from here)

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.

Writing with a pace and intensity surpassing even her own greatest work, Anita Shreve delivers in TESTIMONY a gripping emotional drama with the impact of a thriller. No one more compellingly explores the dark impulses that sway the lives of seeming innocents, the needs and fears that drive ordinary men and women into intolerable dilemmas, and the ways in which our best intentions can lead to our worst transgressions.

The book premise reminds me of something I heard some time ago. People should be careful what's put on line because it could come back to haunt them, whether it's on something like Facebook, a blog, or a video. They could be very embarrassed if something is found by an employer, teacher, parent, or spouse.
