For a book blogger, there are few things worse than being disappointed by an ARC.
Before picking up The Truth About Us, sadly enough, this is what happened to me. So I was a bit wary. I didn't know this author. The premise was intriguing but so many things could go wrong to ruin it.
I am relieved- and quite a bit excited- to say that my fears were ungrounded.
Jess was a very understandable- and surprisingly likeable- character despite her antics. Possibly even because of them. When you're young, it's so easy to lose your way. Lose sight of who you want to be. To allow your friends and expectations to lead you down paths you never thought you'd take. To forget that some things worth having are worth the fight to gain them. It can happen to all of us, in our dark moments. It happened to Jess. It once happened to me. And her journey back to being a person she could recognise and respect had me in stitches, in tears and cheering for her every hard step of the way.
I would love to hear more about the characters I met in the pages of this one. Janet Gurtler has definitely put herself on my list of authors to watch.
