When her best guy friend falls victim to a vicious hate crime, sixteen-year-old Cat sets out to discover who in her small town did it. Richly atmospheric, this daring mystery mines the secrets of a tightly knit Southern community and examines the strength of will it takes to go against everyone you know in the name of justice.

Against a backdrop of poverty, clannishness, drugs, and intolerance, Myracle has crafted a harrowing coming-of-age tale couched in a deeply intelligent mystery. Smart, fearless, and compassionate, this is an unforgettable work from a beloved author.

Praise for Shine
“Cat eventually uncovers the truth in a cliffhanging climax in which she confronts fear, discovers that love is stronger than hate and truly ‘shines.' Raw, realistic and compelling."
–Kirkus Reviews

“The page-turning mystery and Cat's inspiring trajectory of self-realization will draw readers in and give them plenty to ponder."
–The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

“Dramatic in both content and presentation."
–Los Angeles Times

“Myracle captures well the regret that many feel for things in their past about which they are ashamed. Cat's reflections on these moments are spot-on."
–School Library Journal
