The Golden Day

author: Ursula Dubosarsky

When their teacher goes missing during an outing, eleven girls grapple with the aftermath in this haunting, exquisitely told psychological mystery. What actually happened in the seaside cave that day? And who can they tell about it? Part gripping thriller, part ethereal tale of innocence lost, The Golden Day is a poignant study of fear and friendship, and of what it takes to come of age with courage.

“Chillingly evokes lurking forces capable of tarnishing even the most golden and innocent of days.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

author’s comments:
Ursula Dubosarsky is an award-winning author of numerous books for children and young adults. About The Golden Day, her first book with Candlewick Press, she says, “The little girls watch, wonder, respond, change, and grow—and then they’re gone, forever. This element of the story, I suppose, is at least partly autobiographical. But, as I say—all of our teachers come home safe and sound in the end.” Ursula Dubosarsky lives in Australia.
