Description

MIRI loves the novel Undertow like it's a living being. So when she and her friends get the chance to meet the author, Fatima Ro, they plot a way to get closer to her. As for what happened with Jonah ... Well, obviously none of that was Fatima's fault.

SOLEIL wants to be a writer herself one day. She can't believe it when Fatima asks them to hang out with her - and having Jonah there makes it even better.

PENNY is more than the party girl everyone thinks she is, and she's willing to share her darkest secrets with Fatima to prove it. But what will happen when Fatima finds out about Jonah?

All of This Is True is a story of obsession and revenge, betrayal and forgiveness, and the devastating result of a secret that didn't stay buried.

Review Text

A delicious, addictive puzzle that readers will gobble up. I had to read it twice, once because it had me by the throat, then again to really savor the wit, sarcasm and absolute humanity of these characters. An unbelievably creative undertaking, beautifully executed Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock, author of the Carnegie Medal-shortlisted The Smell of Other People's Houses

A delicious, addictive puzzle that readers will gobble up. I had to read it twice, once because it had me by the throat, then again to really savor the wit, sarcasm and absolute humanity of these characters * Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock, author of the Carnegie Medal-shortlisted The Smell of Other People's Houses * Prepare to be sucked into a world of privilege, obsession and manipulation. All of This is True is an addictive mix of funny and horrifying * Sue Wallman, author of Lying About Last Summer * Flat-out addictive, devious, delicious, and gasp-worthy, All of This Is True is your next binge-read * Kathleen Glasgow, author of Girl in Pieces * Sharp, edgy, and intensely electric, All of This Is True is a study in obsession and art, betrayal and forgiveness, and the web of connections they spin. This book is not afraid to shock * Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of Firsts and Last Girl Lied To * Utterly addictive and psychologically delectable - Penaflor's second novel will shock at every twist and turn * Kirkus, starred review * Penaflor keeps the tensions high and the pacing swift while giving each of the three young narrators a unique voice and perspective ... Suspenseful and smart * Publishers Weekly * A tightly wound and plausible cautionary tale ... The unusual construct is highly effective and has the same addictive quality as sensational tabloids but with thoughtful themes and content * Booklist * As original as it is disturbing ... Readers will be compelled to interrogate their own stances on important contemporary questions * The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review * Even with its addictive, soap opera-esque intrigue, Penaflor's characters remain distinct and believable. Deliciously sordid yet thought-provoking ... A must-have for YA collections * School Library Journal *
