Harmless by Dana Reinhardt
Afraid of getting caught in a lie about where they really were, Anna, Emma and Mariah concoct a story instead. Treated as heroes for fighting off an attacker they made up, they start to feel guilty. When a homeless man is arrested for the attack, the only way to prove his innocence is to confess themselves. Making this decision presents each of the girls with a difficult moral dilemma.
This book is told in chapters by each of the girls from individual points of view. I felt like I got to know them all and could understand each of their positions. The supporting characters, including families and friends, are realistic and add depth to the story. I kept reading because I really wanted to find out how they dealt with the problem they created themselves. Anyone who likes books that make you think will like this!
