BARTHOLOMEW, CECILIA.
Outrun the Dark.
New York: G P Putnam's Sons 1977. 1st Edition. Hardbound 8vo (8.5 inches tall) 318 pages. Description: Dust jacket art by Wendell Minor. She had screamed and screamed when they took her away. She had been eight. Now she is twenty-one, and is going home. She finally confessed to killing Bubber, her four year old brother. Her ''confession'' showed she could face reality. It showed she could live on the outside. But Billyjean doesn't really remember killing her baby brother. Her memories of that day are blocked. And someone else knows that too. Billyjean now knows only that she is in danger, and that she will have to be crazy again -- crazy like a fox. She has outrun the dark. Now she has to run for her life. She cannot trust her mother who has made her hatred clear; nor her father, with his wild temper; nor the seemingly friendly Bernhards, whose disturbing warnings might be meant to trick her; nor even Michael, her handsome childhood companion. Her only friends are two precocious young neighbors who persuade Billyjean to open her own investigation into the murder. Cecilia Bartholomew is also the author of Second Sight and The Risk. BINDING/CONDITION: wine colored cloth the gilt spine text; a Near Fine book, with a Very Good dust jacket; publisher's price on the jacket flap is intact. ISBN: 0399120475
