Who is Alice Franklin? The rumors about her are true? Why did you start it?
Only one person knows the truth: Alice, and this book is the only one She not to tell us the story behind her, but some that are around her, as those who think they have the truth about Alice, They tell us the story.
This ARC I had it for a long time and I had not given me a chance to give it a proper review on this blog, and indeed, it is one of those books that I have among my favorites of this year as a novelty, although at first I had a difficulty of read this story, by the very fact that I did not expect it to be told by others, after that I started to grab my pace.
To tell us the story will be 4 people who had something to do with the life of Alice, and with its own distinct style and with a particular voice for each, which plays an important role.
We have to Kelsie, Alice's former best friend, Josh, a fellow football star who happened to be in the car When the accident happens. We also find to Elaine, queen bee and Kurt, a shy genius who will be an important part of the Alice's story.
Each count us as "is supposed to be Alice" as was the accident and the consequences of this and how they are part of it all is somewhat attractive in that book and envelops you in the desire to know what is what really happened, because despite all their supposed truth, there are flashes of the true state of Alice and who she really is.
This book also gives you that feeling when you read a journal, but still will not get to compare. Perhaps it is more closer to those movies where we all talk about the new girl or the girl will stand out (as in the booktrailer) and that at times we see our protagonist being as it is. And so your mind really see what you are reading, as it is very well defined, the situation is known and we all go through school and take issues which are current .
Intimidation, lies, gossip, power, popularity, sex and high school in all its glory, the issues that handled are the appeal of this book, by the fact that they are in a very well structured situation by the author, and a mirror to realism that exists with more force now in schools. Maybe yeah, we have many movies and books that to see with many cliches about how bullyng was handled before, (although in essence it is the same) there are now more ways to destroy a person and worst in the most cruel manner.
Definitely a theme that never (though hopefully soon end) missing to tell a story, but meanwhile The truth about Alice is a book that you must have, and if you want to know the truth, of Alice, that of no one else, you'll have to get to the end to get it. Add it to your wishlist and Alice definitely give you plenty to talk about.
