Corrigan, WA, 1965. Charlie Bucktin is the only teenager who reads books in a sports-mad town. His best mate Jeffrey Lu isn’t having such a good time either. Jasper Jones lives on the outside of town and keeps himself under the radar.
One summer night, Jasper takes Charlie to his secret glade. Charlie witnesses a terrible discovery and is embroiled in a plot with more twists and turns than the novels he so dearly loves.
