Thanks to NetGalley and Sourcebooks Fire, I was given an Advanced Reader's Copy of The Truth.
Chris wakes up duct taped to a chair with a boy he hardly recognizes holding a pair of garden shears. What could Derek possibly want from him? Then it all comes flooding back to him; mom working late, someone breaking in, Devon calling for Chris, then BANG gunshot, blood all over the kitchen.... Everyone at school keeps calling Chris a hero. What is did saved the town from more break-ins. But the guy he shot was just a kid, a runaway even. How can people praise you for shooting a kid a few years older than Devon? Told in alternating past and present tense, we learn the truth. We learn why Chris feels the way he does. We learn why Derek wants vengeance. We learn why Devon is so upset with Chris. What would you do to protect your family? What would you do for the ones you love? That is how we learn The Truth.
Mark your calenders, The Truth hits shelves February 2nd!
