Hallelujah, Hallie to most, is isolated. Rumors swirl around her about something that happened between her and Luke, the preacher’s kid, mostly started and spread by Luke himself. His lies have made her a pariah – shunned by her friends and made fun of by everyone else. Shame is her only companion. But Hallie has managed to keep her parents in the dark, not letting them know how bad things have gotten. So she goes on her church’s youth hiking trip with Luke and the others who have bullied her. She meets a newcomer, Rachel, who knows nothing about the incident. Rachel tries to reach out to Hallie. And then Hallie, Rachel and Jonah, one of Hallie’s former best friends, get lost in the woods and survival becomes the focus. They have to trust each other in order to survive. Will Hallie come clean about what really happened with Luke that fateful night? (Prepared by: Susan A. Henley, Academic Magnet High School, , South Carolina Young Adult Book Award, 2018)
