A sex tape surfaces at a New England private school. It shows a drunken encounter between three male students and one female student, the girl just 14. The headmaster tries to deal with the matter internally but it escalates beyond his control: the police are called, careers are jeopardised and lives unravel. Anita Shreve's narration is simple but not empty of invention. She uses numerous voices - not just those of the main characters, but also their parents and friends, creating a plausible backdrop against which such a scandal could unfold. But while the novel is compelling in places, its central twist is predictable and the girl at the heart of events is underdeveloped in comparison with the male characters.
