The Kitty Committee

Author(s): Kathryn Berla

Location(s): San Francisco, Europe, Lake Tahoe

Genre(s): Mystery, Fiction, Thriller

Era(s): Current Era

Every year, it comes. And every year, it reminds Grace that someone knows her deepest secret―the secret whose silence has tormented Grace over the years. That secret began with an innocent gang of teenage friends who called themselves The Kitty Committee.

The Kitty Committee of Grace’s youth was ostensibly a group of friendship and support. But the friends fell victim to the ringleader’s manipulative personality and recklessness, which set the girls on a course of vigilante justice, culminating in an act that will forever change their lives, an act that becomes their shared secret.

Grace’s silence and guilt has led to over twenty years of disappointing relationships, an inability to commit, and a crisis of morality. And no matter how much Grace has suffered and lost, still it comes every year. The reminder that someone out there wants The Kitty Committee to suffer–someone who won’t forget and won’t forgive.
