Sefia sa cosa significa dover sopravvivere. Dopo che il padre è stato brutalmente ucciso, è fuggita con la misteriosa zia Nin, che le ha insegnato a cacciare, seguire le impronte e rubare. Ma quando Nin viene rapita, Sefia rimane completamente sola. L’unico indizio che può aiutarla a ritrovare Nin è uno strano oggetto rettangolare che il padre ha gelosamente custodito fino al giorno della sua morte. Un manufatto mai visto prima, di cui nessuno le aveva mai parlato, perché nel mondo in cui è nata e cresciuta la lettura è un’attività proibita. Con l’aiuto di questo libro e di un ragazzo che nasconde oscuri segreti, Sefia cercherà di salvare la zia Nin e scoprire che cosa sia realmente accaduto il giorno in cui suo padre è stato ucciso. Con un meraviglioso alternarsi di storie di pirati, duelli di cappa e spada e assassini spietati, La lettrice è un’avventura raccontata in modo magistrale da uno straordinario nuovo talento.

No one knows what happened that morning at River Point. Five boys went hunting. Four came back. The boys won’t say who fired the shot that killed their friend; the evidence shows it could have been any one of them. Kate Marino’s senior year internship at the District Attorney’s Office isn’t exactly glamorous—more like an excuse to leave school early that looks good on college applications. Then the DA hands her boss, Mr. Stone, the biggest case her small town of Belle Terre has ever seen. The River Point Boys are all anyone can talk about. Despite their damning toxicology reports the morning of the accident, the DA wants the boys’ case swept under the rug. He owes his political office to their powerful families. Kate won’t let that happen. Digging up secrets without revealing her own is a dangerous line to walk; Kate has her own reasons for seeking justice for Grant. As she and Stone investigate—the ageing prosecutor relying on Kate to see and hear what he cannot—she realizes that nothing about the case—or the boys—is what it seems. Grant wasn’t who she thought he was, and neither is Stone’s prime suspect. As Kate gets dangerously close to the truth, it becomes clear that the early morning accident might not have been an accident at all—and if Kate doesn’t uncover the true killer, more than one life could be on the line…including her own.
