Guest Review: The Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu

Monday, February 23, 2015
Why I chose this book:
During the summer of 2014, I saw a lot of hype about The Truth About Alice. I was intrigued but also a little nervous to give such a buzzed about book a chance so soon after its release. I knew I was eventually going to read it, but I put it on the back burner because the bullying subject matter hit pretty close to home for me, as I was also bullied in high school. Then, not too long ago, I started to see people getting excited for Jennifer's upcoming book, Devoted. I knew right then and there that I had to read The Truth About Alice, even though the two books are completely different and unrelated. I just had to figure out why everyone fell in love with this book and Jennifer Mathieu.
