The Truth About Alice, by Jennifer Mathieu | Book Review
Then one of the boys, a star football player named Brandon, dies in a car accident. Alice must somehow be to blame. This is a truly fascinating book because although we hear the story of Alice in 4 voices, not a single 1 of those voices belong to Alice herself. There is Elaine, queen bee and mean girl extraordinaire who starts it all, in part because she is still mad about something that happened in 8th grade. And there is Kurt, a shy genius who reaches out to Alice when no one else will. Much like 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher, this is a book about the effect of rumors. It is also a book about slut shaming.
Passar bra ihop
There are all sorts of rumours about Alice Franklin. And after star quarterback Brandon Fitzsimmons dies in a car accident, the rumours start to spiral out of control blaming Alice for Brandon's death. In this remarkable novel, four Healy High students - the party girl, the car accident survivor, the ex 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. Impressive plotting and excellent characterisation made this one of the best YA books I've read so far this year. The premise is simple- is Alice Franklin responsible for the star quarterback's death?
