Atonement
by Ian McEwan

Ian McEwan captures the life of a child, Briony, who struggles with growing up too quickly. Her notion between the real world is tainted by the fantasy world, only able to place people in the categories of heroes and villains. Briony is caught in a series of events where she is quick to become the hero, but her heroic efforts mixed with her jealousy have horrific consequences that her childish mind can't comprehend. Ian McEwan observes the strength of true love, the horrors of judgment, and the power of guilt.
