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.
- I was drawn in from the beginning. I loved the multiple POVs and I really needed to know the truth.
- I felt the book was really realistic. High School sucks for rumors. One “popular” person can decide that someone is going to be bullied and everyone goes with it. Even Alice’s best friend turned her back on Alice.
- There is a quote on the back of the book that is totally true and hits home:
- I loved Kurt. I felt like he was my favorite character. He knew who he was, didn’t change himself to fit in and saw past all the rumors surrounding Alice.
- I could not imagine being Alice. I think she handled the situation fairly well. I guess I would have felt like I would have stood up for myself more, but if it does come down to one word against another, that is tough.
- Alice just didn’t do what I wanted her to do. Maybe the ending was more realistic. It has been a bit of time since I was out of high school and we didn’t have any social media or anything like that when I was in school, but I just thought the ending would have been a bit more mind-blowing. I kinda felt the same at the end of The Truth about Alice as I did with The Spectacular Now.
