30—Testimony by Anita Shreve

All hell is breaking loose at Avery Academy, a prestigious private high school in Vermont. In the beginning the headmaster receives a video tape showing 3 of Avery's seniors (and the core of their basketball team) engaged in sexual intercourse with a 14 year old student. 

The story unfolds in the several voices of the participants: the headmaster, the students involved, the room mate of the girl, the girlfriend of one of the boys, and several parents. As each person relates the events leading up to the night in question we learn more and more of what occurred.

An intriguing, but sad tale of young love, and the consequences of an adulterous affair.
