It’s time for my July Random Read! Thanks to imlovingbooks.com for hosting this meme. This month random.org chose #57, and that means I will be reading The Truth about Alice by Jennifer Mathieu. This is a book that got a lot of buzz in the spring of 2014. Looks like I will be making a trip to my local public libraries soon!
Here is the Goodreads description:
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.
