A False Report follows two parallel rape cases through the criminal justice system: one which was solved and the other which was deemed to be a false report. With a keen eye for sociologically-focused narrative journalism, Armstrong and Miller paint an incredibly timely portrait of how the legal system and society as a whole view women’s truths and how, going forward, we can stop silencing women’s voices in the post #MeToo time.
A False Report is one of 12 finalists chosen for the 2019 Pacific Northwest Book Award. The six winners will be announced in January. nwbooklovers.org is posting blurbs from the committee for each of the shortlisted titles.
