About the book
A young investigative journalist is working on a feature article that takes a critical look at right-wing politician Xavier Wiegers. As part of her research, she wants to interview his college friends, all of whom belong to a small, but still tightly-knit secret society called Honey Ball. To her frustration, the circle of friends completely freezes her out. However, it does become apparent that Wiegers’ friends take issue with his political views. On the eve of the society’s forty-year anniversary celebration, the question is not whether the friendships will suffer so much as just how bad the fallout is going to be.
The Shadow of a Friend is a novel about moral dilemmas you don’t realize you’re dealing with until they’ve become unsolvable, and about a defiant young woman who decides to go up against five ‘old boys’.
