The Truth Game

Front Cover
Sourcebooks, Inc., May 3, 2016 - Juvenile Fiction - 224 pages

A heartwarming tale about learning that sometimes telling the truth has consequences...

  1. Do you have a best friend? That's one easy. Yes!
  2. Have you ever had a fight with your BF? Ugh. Yes.
  3. Have you ever told your BF a major lie? Ugh again. Yes. (More than I'd like to count)
  4. Do you ever wish you were best friends with someone else? No! Well, um...

Rachel Lee thought that ninth grade would be different. That she would be different. Holding hands with Evan in the hallway, future president of the baking club... but it feels like she and BFF Marisol are drifting apart. At first, Rachel thought the Truth Game app would be a great way to do a little anonymous confessing, to see how others handle their friendship fails. But when her painful truths become public, Rachel's in danger of losing her best friend—permanently.

Praise for award-winning Author Anna Staniszewski's The Dirt Diary series:
"Staniszewski keeps the focus on comedy... Gentle fun laced with equally gentle wisdom."—Kirkus
"Rachel's situation and feelings ring true...This realistic read is likely to appeal to middle schoolers and reluctant readers."—School Library Journal
"I LOVED it...sweet, sensitive, and delicious!"—Erin Dionne, author of Models Don't Eat Chocolate Cookies

Don't miss the other books in this hilarious series about friendship, first crushes and sweet treats: The Dirt Diary, The Prank List, and The Gossip File.
