Rumors about Alice Franklin have been spreading around Healy High ever since Brandon Fitzsimmons died in a car wreck, after telling everyone that Alice slept with him and another guy in the same night.
Soon a “slut stall” arises in the girls’ bathroom at school, and people whisper about Brandon’s death being Alice’s fault behind her back. But Alice has clammed up, so no one knows how she was really involved in the events—no one, save for some teenagers who are keeping their own secrets involving her.
Parents should be aware that this book contains:
• Profanity (including the F-word)
• Mentions of breasts
• A semi-descriptive sex scene between a teenager and an older, college-aged person
• One character has an abortion
Told in multiple point of views, The Truth About Alice is a realistically written, fast-paced young adult book that spectacularly tackles school stereotypes. I would recommend it for mature teens.
