Description - The Truth About Emma by Gary Crew
I never met anyone like Emma Burden. Whenever I was with her I was in a state of constant confusion. She was at once moral and immoral, honest and deceitful, socially familiar yet intellectually independent, a little girl, a teenager, a woman, a self-proclaimed virgin and a practising slut. But for all the confusion I felt in her presence, I never once complained of being there. Work that out if you can. This daring crossover novel is told by Rafel Innocenti, a journalist who is both beguiled and alarmed by the intriguing Emma Burden, an extraordinary teenager who attracts older men and is in the unusual position of having slept with a university lecturer, murdered a cop and been on the cover of News World, all before leaving high school. A novel that explores the nature of guilt and innocence by internationally acclaimed author Gary Crew.
