Daring and complex, The Walls Around Us explores the inner worlds of two disturbed girls. Amber has been locked away in the Aurora Hills Juvenile Detention Center long enough to always think in terms of “we,” fusing herself to the other inmates, leaving the reader uncertain which opinions and experiences were truly Amber’s. Violet (Vee) is a ballerina perfectly poised to attend Julliard in a matter of weeks…if she doesn’t rot from the inside first, as full as she is of secrets and guilt. In between them is Orianna: Vee’s best friend, a convicted murderer, and the final girl to be sent to Aurora Hills. It’s not just the supernatural that’s creep in this book; you’ll find yourself looking over your shoulder and wondering what the people you know are really thinking. A well-crafted, engrossing plunge into the cages of troubled girls’ minds!
