The Golden Day

Amazon.com Rating:

The Vietnam War rages overseas, but back at home, in a year that begins with the hanging of one man and ends with the drowning of another, eleven schoolgirls embrace their own chilling history when their teacher abruptly goes missing on a field trip. Who was the mysterious poet they had met in the Garden? What actually happened in the seaside cave that day? And most important -- who can they tell about it?

In beautifully shimmering prose, Ursula Dubosarsky reveals how a single shared experience can alter the course of young lives forever. Part gripping thriller, part ethereal tale of innocence lost, The Golden Day is a poignant study of fear and friendship, and of what it takes to come of age with courage.

Description

"In a stunning feat of perspective, Dubosarsky inhabits all 11 girls at once, snaking through a thousand small joys and triumphs and fears and petty grudges as they absorb life’s bleakest truths as well as their own complicity in them: “Their eyes were clear but their hearts were dishonest.” Reminiscent of Janne Teller’s Nothing (2010), this is a masterful look at children’s numb surprise to the most unsavory of adult developments." -- Daniel Kraus, Booklist
