Seventeen-year-old River doesn’t know what to do with himself when Penny, the girl he adores, breaks up with him. He lives in LA, where nobody walks anywhere, and Penny was his ride; he never bothered getting a license. He’s stuck. He’s desperate. Okay . . . he’s got to learn to drive.
But first, he does the unthinkable—he starts walking. He stumbles upon a support group for teens with various addictions. He fakes his way into the meetings, and begins to connect with the other kids, especially an amazing girl. River wants to tell the truth, but he can’t stop lying, and his tangle of deception may unravel before he learns how to handle the most potent drug of all: true love.
5 Reasons to read Tell Us Something True
- River is a character that grows throughout the book. He has flaws and that makes him real.
- Living for one person isn’t the best way to handle things. You lose yourself.
- This has to be the most bizarre way to connect with people.
- Support groups can help you. Even when you didn’t know you needed it.
- Sometimes friendships are the best thing for you.
I really enjoyed this book. It’s quirky and fun while dealing with some heavier topics. I also love that River has such a strong family unit.
