Publisher's Summary

Her pupils murdered her daughter. Now she will have her revenge.

After calling off her engagement in the wake of a tragic revelation, Yuko Moriguchi had nothing to live for except her only child, four-year-old child, Manami. Now, following an accident on the grounds of the middle school where she teaches, Yuko has given up and tendered her resignation.

But first she has one last lecture to deliver. She tells a story that upends everything her students ever thought they knew about two of their peers, and sets in motion a diabolical plot for revenge.

Narrated in alternating voices, with twists you'll never see coming, Confessions probes the limits of punishment, despair, and tragic love, culminating in a harrowing confrontation between teacher and student that will place the occupants of an entire school in danger. You'll never look at a classroom the same way again.

Loved this book!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️LOVED this darkly twisted tale of psychologically damaged children and adults each seeking their own independent and egotistical release from both real and perceived threats to their happiness. Evil deeds, wicked plots, murder, broken hearts and broken minds are explored with an unapologetic honesty that is both beautiful and terrifying.

A very compelling read.

This was a great story told from five different perspectives. It was enjoyable to hear each of the characters inner thoughts and feelings as they go through the same story. I also found the ending extremely satisfying. The narrators did an excellent job of portraying the 5 characters. Very enjoyable story!
