    Though we're known as a nation of English speakers, the linguistic map of the United States is hardly monochromatic. While much ado has been made about the role that Spanish may play in our national future, it would be a gross misrepresentation to label America a bilingual country. On the contrary, our languages are as varied as our origins. There is Basque in Nevada, Arabic in Detroit, Gullah in South Carolina. We speak European, Asian, and American Indian languages; we speak creoles, jargons, and pidgins.

    'As soon as they processed my release, Noah and I hit the ground running. A change of clothes. A wig. An inconspicuous sedan. We doubled back once, twice, then drove south when we were really headed east. In San Francisco we had a girl who looked like me board a plane to Hawaii. Oh, I thought I was so clever. But you probably already know that I'm not.' LA "it" girl Janie Jenkins has it all. The looks, the brains, the connections. The criminal record.

    Frischer Wind in der Welt der Spannungsromane. Janie Jenkins wird im Alter von 16 Jahren für den Mord an ihrer prominenten Mutter für schuldig erklärt. Das Problem: Janie kann sich selbst nicht daran erinnern, was in der Nacht des Mordes geschehen ist. Als sie zehn Jahre später das Gefängnis verlässt, macht sie sich auf die Suche nach der Wahrheit. Eine Spur führt sie in eine verschlafene Provinzstadt in South Dakota, wo sie Stück für Stück die überraschende Vergangenheit ihrer Mutter aufdeckt. Am Ende muss Janie sich entscheiden, ob sie weiter unter falscher Identität vor Presse, Polizei und einem möglichen Mörder fliehen will - oder sich der Wahrheit stellt.
