Jasper Jones

By: Craig Silvey

Book Talk

Jasper Jones has just stumbled onto a corpse, who happens to be his secret girlfriend. Jasper, the town bad boy, is sure he will be blamed for Laura’s death. His only hope comes in the unlikely form of rule-following good boy Charlie Bucktin. In the dead of a hot summer night, Jasper convinces Charlie to come with him on an illicit mission to hide the body. With Laura hidden, they might have time to discover the real killer, and keep Jasper out of jail.  But when the whole town begins searching for the missing Laura, and Charlie begins a romance with her sister, the secret might become too big to keep.
