The Whisper Jar
by Carole Lanham

THREE MAY KEEP A SECRET IF TWO OF THEM ARE DEAD

From USA Today bestselling author Carole Lanham comes a special edition of her award-winning short stories recreated with photography that’s as dark and mischievous as a whispered secret …

When Mr. Jericho visits the farm, Etta undergoes a change that makes her crave the unthinkable. Too bad her brother Gidion is the one she turns to in her hour of need.

There’s something hidden at the top of the staircase at The Asylum for Fatherless Children. When Bram is sent up to give it a look, he faces a monster more ugly than he ever imagined, and learns the terrible truth about himself.

For three young friends with a taste for danger, mysterious candy leads to disaster and maybe (maybe not) to flying through the air by the seat of your pants. One thing is for certain: If someone should ever offer you a Jilly Jally Butter Mint, just say no!

Pulitzer Prize nominee Thomas Sullivan calls The Whisper Jar “Ghastly and puckish and melodic and riveting and erotic and fanciful and sometimes poignant, sometimes funny, and always entertaining.” Like secrets whispered in a jar, this special edition is guaranteed to torment you long after you’ve turned the final page.
