The Truth About Alice – Jennifer Mathieu ★★★★

Blurb; Everyone knows Alice slept with two guys at one party.

But did you know Alice was sexting Brandon when he crashed his car?

It’s true. Ask ANYBODY.

Rumor has it that Alice Franklin is a slut. It’s written all over the bathroom stall at Healy High for everyone to see. And after star quarterback Brandon Fitzsimmons dies in a car accident, the rumors start to spiral out of control.

In this remarkable debut novel, four Healy High students—the girl who has the infamous party, the car accident survivor, the former best friend, and the boy next door—tell all they know.

But exactly what is the truth about Alice? In the end there’s only one person to ask: Alice herself.

My Review; I read this one because I loved the authors previous book Moxie so much. I had high expectations for this one.

At first the story royally annoyed me. Grr. The story focuses on one character called Alice and the rumours about her. For 80% of the book its about this girl being bullied by everyone and her just putting up with it… Which was why I was annoyed but towards the end I got it. There was a hidden meaning to it all. Be strong. Carry on. The truth always comes out in the end. In the end you will be the one that comes out of top. I really felt for Alice honestly poor girl. But she did me proud at the end.

Unfortunately these books do happen in real life in schools I have been in her position myself so it’s also eye opening. Brave. Determination. Powerful. I salute Alice. A well deserved four stars from me.
