The Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu
Posted by sailingaway at 10:11 AM Monday, May 12, 2014
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.
I have never read a book that stitches 4 different points of view together as well as Mathieu does here in this book. You get all the descriptions of the characters in the story to try to piece things together and make your own decision, then Alice's point of view gets a chapter. This is definitely the chiche high school gossip type of book, however the writing style keeps it fresh and interesting to the point where you really want to keep reading.
I found it very entertaining to read about the plights and struggles of teenage life. What really matters to someone at this age is completely different than what matters to us as we get older. It is extremely interesting to read about the different social circles of the characters and the connections between them as the story unfolds. Whether you are a teen or an adult, this book will have something for you to enjoy. Connect the rumors with the truth about Alice and figure out how the whole mess ties together in this well though out book.
