Summary - English

New book from the author of โ€œI will cross the world to youโ€
โ€œFacts donโ€™t matter, what people believe matters more.โ€
A story about fragmented truth and shattered faith

Chul Chul-nim, who has been recognized for her warm and heartwarming stories of teenage angst, returns with a surprisingly absorbing novel with an unpredictable ending. "The Child I Want to Kill tells the story of a high school girlโ€™s death, a story that is anything but ordinary, and tells readers a story about truth and faith.

The novelโ€™s protagonists, Joo-yeon and Seo-eun, are best friends. One day, after a big fight, Seo-eun is found dead in a vacant lot behind the school building, and Joo-yeon is arrested as the prime suspect. But for some reason, Joo-yeon canโ€™t remember anything about that day. Did Joo-yeon really kill Seo-eun? The story unfolds in a unique way, with seventeen interviews of people who testify against Joo-yeon and Seo-eun, intercut with the stories of the people around Joo-yeon. Each interview changes the picture of who Joo-yeon and Seo-eun were as children and what their relationship was like. The unpredictable development of the story, with twists and turns that confuse the reader, creates a tremendous sense of immersion that will not let the reader put the book down until the end.

"The Child I Want to Kill vividly reveals the savagery of a world filled with people who see only what they see, hear only what they hear, and believe only what they believe. Whereas her previous books were a tender comfort to teenagers, The Kid I Want to Kill is a chilling warning from an author who has stood beside teenagers in a world where truth is edited and consumed at will.

Why are you nominating this book: The topic is a little bit heavy, but itโ€™s also very interesting, and quite deep. I expected that such a topic would have complex vocab, but at least, from what I could read from the preview, itโ€™s a lot easier than ์†Œ๋ฆฌ๋ฅผ ๋ณด๋Š” ์†Œ๋…„ | L27.
Itโ€™s one of the YA books written by famous author ์ด๊ฝƒ๋‹˜, which just makes me want to read it even more. You can check out @lingophile 's review to get a better idea of what the book is like.

Iโ€™m all for another round of nominations and voting! Iโ€™m almost halfway through ์ฃฝ์ด๊ณ  ์‹ถ์€ ์•„์ด, a little late since I got the book late as well, but Iโ€™m hoping to be able to catch up soon. Iโ€™ll see if I end up joining depending on the level of the book chosen however, as usual.
