Testify by Valerie Sherrard Review

Reviewed by Louisa Nashir

This wonderfully written novel by Valerie Sherrard is shocking, gripping and will really make you think.

The story follows Shana a goody two shoes girl who finds herself in a dark and scary world when her best friend Carrie asks for help after Carrie suggests that her stepfather Joe has been abusing her.

Carrie asks Shana to lie in court that she saw Joe abusing Carrie which she does but will her lies catch up with her or will Carrie’s and Shana’s lies get Joe sent to prison. Will Shana tell the truth or will she allow Joe to be imprisoned as a favour for her ‘friend’?

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and would read it over and over again.

Rating: 5/5
