Previously published under the titleKetchup Clouds
Dear Mr. S. Harris,
Ignore the blob of red in the top left corner. It's jam, not blood, though I don't think I need to tell you the difference. It wasn't your wife's jam the police found on your shoe.

I know what it's like.
Mine wasn't a woman. Mine was a boy. And I killed him three months ago exactly.

Zoe has an unconventional pen pal -- Mr. Stuart Harris, a Texas Death Row inmate and convicted murderer. But that's okay, because Zoe has an unconventional story to tell. A story about how she fell for two boys, betrayed one of them, and killed the other.

Mr. Harris may never respond to Zoe's letters, but at least somebody will know her story -- somebody who knows what it's like to kill the person you love. Only through her unusual confession can Zoe hope to atone for her mistakes that have torn lives apart, and work to put her own life back together again.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice enough The book is completely written in the form of letters from a teenage girl to an inmate, which I thought was really creative. The writing was also done well enough that I didn't get bored reading, but I just wasn't a fan of the plot.

Editorial Reviews

* "Compelling and believable...by turns heartbreaking and hysterically funny... This is an important book that could be used in classes and book-discussion groups. Don't let it fall through the cracks."
-School Library Journal (starred review)
