Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—A year ago, Sadie had four close friends and a boyfriend. Then, the accident happened and one of them didn't survive. Shortly after the tragedy, Sadie caught her now ex-boyfriend, Gray, kissing her former best friend, Gina. Now, Sadie is covered in scars she likes to name and Max, the only friend she still speaks with lives in El Salvador. They are all keeping secrets. Can they come together to learn the truth of the accident? The event changed everyone, but will they learn to love their current selves and each other or forever be stuck in the past? Sadie must learn to overcome her scars, physical and emotional, to find how to move forward, with or without her friends. Stevens weaves a tale not only of survival but also of learning to thrive. This realistic YA novel explores the weight of the past, the value of the truth, and the meaning and process of forgiveness, which teen readers will identify with. The narrative is told with a mix of flashbacks and past emails that bring perspective and a much needed history of the characters, giving them depth and authenticity. VERDICT A great addition to any YA collection.—Cyndi Hamann, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

Review

“This realistic YA novel explores the weight of the past, the value of the truth, and the meaning and process of forgiveness, which teen readers will identify with. A great addition to any YA collection” (School Library Journal)

“No one writes better about resilience and ‘channeling your brave’ than Stevens does.” (--Cammie McGovern, author of Say What You Will)

In Courtney Stevens’ The Lies About Truth, Courtney writes beautiful and flawed characters that contain raw emotions. The Lies About Truth touched my soul.-- Katie McGarry, bestselling author of Pushing the Limits (.)

“This lyrical novel explores loss and survivor’s guilt, friendship and trust, and grieving and moving forward through the heart of a young woman who has lost much and yet feels paralyzed to reclaim her life.” (ALA Booklist)

“Engaging characters and engrossing storytelling.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))

PRAISE FOR FAKING NORMAL: “Somewhere between Sarah Dessen and Laurie Halse Anderson lies Stevens’s rich debut about two adolescents grappling with extraordinary trauma....the mood is intense and the story moves briskly, complete with an ending so surprising that some readers may flip back to the beginning to start fresh.” (Publishers Weekly)

PRAISE FOR FAKING NORMAL: “Reminiscent of Melinda in Speak, Alexi tries to find her voice. A story that resonates.” (Kirkus)

PRAISE FOR FAKING NORMAL: “Debut novelist Stevens has written a powerful and fast-paced first-person story of a young woman who finds an inner strength she never knew she possessed.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))
