The Truth About Alice
A riveting YA novel about beauty, youth and the terrible power of malicious words. There are a lot of rumours about Alice Franklin, and it’s stopped mattering whether they’re true. It all started at a party when Alice supposedly was with two guys in one night. But when one of those guys died in a car crash, the rumours exploded into serious allegations that his death was Alice’s fault. Now the one friend Alice has in her suffocating small town may be the only other person who knows the truth – but he’s too afraid to admit it.
