To Be Honest is a YA fiction book about a girl who has a deformed hand following an accident. Around her, she has built a comfort zone that she doesn't leave, not for anything. Then she hears the devastating news that her and her family are moving to a new town, and her safe world is ripped wide open. Not only does Starla have to change and adapt to survive, but she also has to find the courage to be honest. This is the second book of author T. C. Booth that I've read, and once again I am impressed. She captures emotions and moments in few words, and brings the reader inside her character's heads, hearts, and lives. There are some minor hiccups within the writing to do with tense, but nothing big and definitely not enough to mar the enjoyment value. This author understands what it is to be a teenager, and writes about the trials and tribulations brilliantly. I heartily recommend this book to readers young and old alike. I can't wait to see what this writer comes up with next.

To Be Honest by T.C. Booth, is an inspirational story to me. I like that it is a Teen/Young Adult, Clean story. Something that can be hard to find. I loved that it focused on Starla, and the fact that she looks different because of an accident. High school can be hard enough without looking different. I loved that she has a strong family and she is a smart girl. The fact that her parents have to the move family when she is 17 years old to a new high school away from her friends, is hard, takes courage and Starla managed to meet new friends.
I am also impressed how the cyber-bulling came up and how that was dealt with. I did love the other characters in the book. How they all wanted to help Starla. There is so much good in this story, and also showing the diversity and the sameness of others. I laughed and cried while reading this story, It is a great story to read.
I did receive this book in an exchange for and honest review.

Original review posted at @ http://sandrathebookworm.blogspot.com/2015/08/to-be-honest.html

The author was kind enough to send me an Ecopy in exchange for an honest review. This book is so good; it had me on an emotional roller-coaster.

Starla had a freak accident that left her hand deformed, but she has overcomes it and has an amazing boyfriend Jared and an awesome best friend Ally. Everything is going great until the night she overhears her mom talking on the phone finds out they're moving and in the middle of the school year. Everything is going great for Starla in her new school until she finds herself the center of attention brought on by a cyberbully that ruins her relationship with Jared, it is then her new friends decide to launch a counter attack to try and reveal the cyber bullies identity; part of the plan involves Starla and her new friend Chase faking a relationship, but soon Starla starts falling for Chase and the plan starts to backfire on her.

This book was not what I expected; I fell in love with it and all the amazing characters immediately. I loved T.C. Booths writing style it just sucked you into the story. I loved Starla’s character development throughout the book; she really learned to accept her flaws and to stand up for herself. Now let’s take a minute to talk about the perfection that is Chase; I loved everything about him, he was every girl's dream guy and so swoon worthy. I also really liked the subjects the story centered on, cyber bullying which is very common nowadays and that you should never think less of yourself because you're different. Chase and Starla were perfect for each-other he understood her so well and always put her first. T.C. put me through an emotional roller-coaster she made me laugh, cry and cry of happiness and I would ride that roller-coaster all over again! This book was absolute perfection and everyone should pick it up.

*I received a free copy from the author for an honest review*

I am a sucker for differently abled protagonists and this book is based on a heroine, Starla who has a deformed hand caused by an accident. Another reason I picked up this book was because I was taking a break from paranormal and fantasy genres and wanted a contemporary read. Am I glad I did! Because this book is not just the usual teen book but much more than that.

The blurb mislead me a bit because it totally talks about Starla's change to a new school. So I was expecting her to be enrolled in the start itself. But the book begins from how great is Starla's life at the present school and about her friends. A couple of chapters flew by me as I got to know Starla, Ally and Jared.

Starla is characterised well in the story. She seems to be adjusted to her new life but then the move brings out all the insecurities especially because of the cyber bully. She shows strength of character and seems to be a well loved girl. And another thing which really made me love her was that she wasn't a whiny person and though she is a teen, she is mature beyond her years. Actually I felt that most of the characters didn't read as teens at all. They were wise beyond their age and showed a level headedness not associated with teenagers. The characters were well developed and kept my interest in their antics. I got to say that the side characters, Ally, Maggie , Rayne and Jake supported Starla and Chase beautifully throughout the book. And finally about Chase, now if I can find a guy like him, I am all set for life! He is one of the few good guys though he has a love for a bit extreme sports. He complements Starla very well.
