What really happened at the back of the bus? Did they, or didn't they? Did she, or didn't she? Something happened to fourteen-year-old Maisie Willard-something involving her three friends, all boys. But their stories don't match, and the rumors spin out of control. Then other people get involved... the school, the parents, the lawyers. The incident at the back of the bus becomes the center of Maisie's life and the talk of the school, and, horribly, it becomes news. With just a few words and a touch, the kids and their community are changed forever. From nationally acclaimed author Francine Prose comes an unforgettable story about the difficulties of telling the truth, the consequences of lying, and the most dangerous twist of all-the possibility that you yourself will come to believe something that you know isn't true.

good writing but this book could have been shortened. some parts weren't really needed. sad that she isn't friends with shakes anymore though.

Prose wasn't as much of an interesting read as I thought it'd be, and as the prior comment stated it was pretty drawn out. If anything, it was somewhat underwhelming.

I didn't think the storyline was all that interesting and it felt a bit drawn out. Overall, it was just an okay book. But I like the author's writing style, so I might check out her other books.
