I am so very pleased to reveal the cover for THE TRUTH ABOUT ALICE by debut author, Jennifer Mathieu! This book has been on my radar for a while and after seeing this thought provoking cover, I am really excited!
Here’s a little bit about the book:
Author: Jennifer Mathieu
Category: Young Adult
Publisher: Roaring Brook
Release Date: 6-10-13
Everyone has a lot to say about Alice Franklin, and it’s stopped mattering whether it’s true. The rumors started at a party when Alice supposedly had sex with two guys in one night. When school starts everyone almost forgets about Alice until one of those guys, super-popular Brandon, dies in a car wreck that was allegedly all Alice’s fault. Now the only friend she has is a boy who may be the only other person who knows the truth, but is too afraid to admit it. Told from the perspectives of popular girl Elaine, football star Josh, former outcast Kelsie, and shy genius Kurt, we see how everyone has a motive to bring – and keep – Alice down.
This is a book that deserves a place on your 2014 summer reading list! I love the grittier side of contemporary YA and this promises to be a hard-hitting contemp with small town intrigue and characters that I’m sure I will love. Add it on Goodreads!
We do love our authors here in Texas and we are so happy for Jennifer and glad she calls Texas home! Even if you aren’t lucky enough to be a Texan, you can still put this book on your TBR or even feature it for a Waiting On Wednesday. Be on the look-out for an ARC giveaway in a few months. Congrats, Jennifer!
