Ketchup Clouds by Annabel Pitcher

Okay, I’m just going to come out with it… I think it’s really disturbing that Anna is corresponding with an older man and this creepy feeling followed me throughout, clouding the real story.

Dear Mr. S. Harris

Ignore the blob of red in the top left corner. It’s jam, not blood, though I don’t think I need to tell you the difference. It wasn’t your wife’s jam the police found on your shoe. . . 

A sad, tender and surprisingly funny story that kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to find out what actually happened.

Fifteen-year-old Zoe has a secret—a dark and terrible secret that she can’t confess to anyone she knows. But then one day she hears of a criminal, Stuart Harris, locked up on death row in Texas. Like Zoe, Stuart is no stranger to secrets. Or lies. Or murder.

Full of heartache yet humour, Zoe tells her story in the only way she can—in letters to the man in prison in America. Armed with a pen, Zoe takes a deep breath, eats a jam sandwich, and begins her tale of love and betrayal.   — Extract from Goodreads.com
