A Book Recommendation from the Young Young Critics' Club

The Book of One Hundred Truths *Click here to request this book* The Book of One Hundred Truths, by Julie Schumacher
Thea (short for Theodora) is a normal girl except for one thing: she is a liar. Her parents think that she should start telling the truth, so when she goes to her grandparents’ house for the summer, her mom makes her take a notebook where she must write exactly 100 true things. She starts with little truths like: “My father doesn’t like goodbyes.” But her truths become more complicated, especially the ones about Gwen, her ex-friend. Something happened between them, and Thea hasn’t told anyone . . . until she jots it down in her notebook. What did she write? Read the book to find out! --Asami

Some books that we read in Y2C2 book club I didn't really like, but the Book of One Hundred Truths was way over the top! It was really good. Congrats to Julie Schumacher on writing it!!!!
