"I read this riveting tale of murder, revenge and madness in one sitting, and it took my breath away. I don't think I've ever read anything quite like it. CONFESSIONS will grab you from the first chapter and won't let go until its stunning conclusion. Pick up this book when you have a few hours to read, because you won't be able to put it down." "Wendy Webb, author of The Vanishing and The Tale of Halcyon Crane""

A "Lord of the Flies" for the modern world, Minato mines the dark specter of youth, while simultaneously demonstrating some of the deeper perils of our global culture." "Jenny Milchman, Mary Higgins Clark Award-winning author of Cover of Snow""

"This award-winning debut novel is a creepy and mesmerizing psychological thriller that challenges the conventions of right vs. wrong, good vs. evil, and law vs. justice. . . . Minato has pieced together an intriguing puzzles that will keep readers glued to their seats." "Library Journal""

"Far deeper and larger, though no less entertaining, than expected. A nasty little masterpiece...that rare creature in fiction: an ambitious exploration into the darkest corners of human nature ... that is alsoa crackling good yarn ... Resistance to the novel's narrative momentum is futile; I read it in a single sitting ... Along the way I learned much--more, if truth be told, than I felt emotionally prepared to learn--about the damage inflicted by adults upon children, and the ways in which the young sometimes return it in kind, twisted and magnified... Books like CONFESSIONS can make you vibrate with happiness." Kevin Nance, "Chicago Tribune""

"Kanae Minato is a brilliant storyteller, and CONFESSIONS is a superb and haunting work. As Minato expertly shifts the perspective from one character to the next, each change in perspective lends a startling new dimension to a gripping and profoundly unsettling tale. It's a novel I'll think about for a very long time."--Emily St. John Mandel, New York Times bestselling author of Station Eleven

A pitch-perfect, riveting read."--Hilary Davidson, Anthony Award-winning author of The Damage Done and Evil in All Its Disguises

"Brilliantly original and chilling."--David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author of Murder as a Fine Art

"It's time to unretire all of those back-of-the-book words that lost their meaning over the years-unputdownable, riveting, searing. CONFESSIONS is some uncanny kind of tour de force, and everyone should read it."--Charles Finch, Agatha Award-nominated author of The September Society and The Last Enchantments

Reseña del editor:

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.
