One Friday night Emma, Anna, and Mariah, three best friends, are out doing something they shouldn’t.

Then a cell phone rings. One girl’s mother wants to know why they aren’t where they said they’d be.

They make up a story so they won’t get in trouble at home. It seems like the easy way out. What happens next challenges their friendship, their community, their relationships with their families, and their sense of themselves. What happens next shows the harm one lie can do. Told in the voices of the three girls who must learn to live with the lies they tell, Harmless is a gripping and provocative audio full of startling turns and surprises.

    " This book is about the three girl that lied to their parents because they knew that if they ask permission that they will go to a party with boys their parents will not let them so they thought of a another reason so their parents will let them. "

    " A great story about how small lies can turn big. Well, their lie wasn't so small, but the consequences were much more far reaching than the girls ever imagined. The voices of the characters, 3 freshman girls, are distinct and lend believability to an otherwise after-school-special kind of story. Explores the usual theme suspects; popularity, family relationships, individuality, etc but the real heavy hitters are teen sexuality, violence and self acceptance. Yeah yeah, I know. What's new? But Harmless' take on these tender tender topics is insightful, and so true to life that it made my stomach turn a little. "

    " Powerful. Everyone should read this! It is scary to think how often this happens and how often those people living on the margins are accused of crimes and misdemeanors when they are completely innocent. Repeating hearsey -just as dangerous. Reinhardt makes the reader question themselves. Reading this book should make us all a bit more selfaware. "

    " When Emma and Anna become part of Mariah's group it is pretty exciting - hanging out with Mariah's older friends and lying to their parents to go to parties at the boys' houses when their parents are out of town. When they're caught it seems so harmless to just tell a little lie - and then it explodes in their faces. "
