If the Witness Lied

by Caroline B. Cooney

First Release:

July 2009

ISBN: 9780385904513

Siblings Jack, Smithy, Madison, and Tris Fountain are famous-because baby Tris unwittingly caused both of his parents' deaths within the same year. Now Jack and nearly-three-year-old Tris live with cold, calculating Aunt Cheryl while Smithy stays at a boarding school and Madison lives with family friends. It seems that nothing will bring the family together again until Cheryl sells the family story to a slimy reality-TV-show producer. The Fountain children reunite to save Tris from becoming a documentary subject while learning that perhaps their father's death wasn't accidental after all.
