"Rumors tells the story of lies and manipulation. It is a story played out in our lives every, single, day. This is a book that I couldn't easily put down. When I did have to put it down, I was thinking about it and anxious to get back to it. Williams is a masterful storyteller. It's difficult not to become emotionally invested in his characters." - Kendra M. ★★★★★
"I started this book at 3 p.m. Yesterday and here it is 2:22 a.m. & I'm done! THATS how good this book is. Please take the time to read, you won't be sorry!" - Carrie ★★★★★
"I loved this book and had to put it down to sleep at one point and raced through the next day's events just so I could finish it! I'm used to the author writing really realistic characters in very believable situations that often scare the hell out of me because they could really happen!" - Teresa F. ★★★★★
"The characterizing of the various personalities was so dead on, I thought I could name the people that the characters could have been based on. The intrigue and reality of small town life was dead on. This book also highlighted the very real problems of bullying and teen suicide and also, sadly, the corruption of our education system. I know so many hard working and caring teachers, and yet so often those in power above them are the ones who make decisions that hurt the kids and teachers alike. An excellent and captivating read." - Cacher ★★★★★
"What a great book. Kept me on tender hooks for a few days. I usually take a week or longer to read an average book but this one I couldn't put down. This book has quite a lot more pages than the average but I finished it in three days. I lost sleep but got so engrossed in the book and its characters that it was worth being bleary-eyed for a couple of days. I would highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone anytime." - Larry B. Utterback ★★★★★

Although it takes place in a small Eastern town, the events, characters and situations could and do happen anywhere and everywhere. Read and you'll see what I mean about relatable. I won't throw any spoilers in here and the synopsis is accurate and you'll find yourself rooting for some of the characters while despising others all while anxiously awaiting the outcome. This is another fine page turner and could be Phil Williams best yet.
Well worth the wait for this; and, hopefully after you've read you'll ponder for a few moments about the message; rumors shape so much of what we are led to believe and we go on without seeking the real truth.
Wow I was putting off reading this for so long and glad I finally started by reading just a few chapters every night.
That lasted about 3 days til I was reading 10 chapters every night til today where I just finished it off totally.
Can't fathom all the damage done to some by rumors or lies.
Relationships come from all different angles and people from all walks of life and they are not forced on you so you get to understand them a little better as they also play a part in what happens.
Felt such heartache for some and shocked at how some just were out for their own self and advancement at all costs.
Won't get into the explicit details but this is a great book that follows just a handful of people: a few teachers, a few administrators, a few parents and a few football players.
All meet everyday at the same school and we learn of all their secrets a bit at a time. Some are shared with others and some are not but they are found out...
Extremes this book goes to implement justice is beyond anything I've read in a super long time. Love how all the ends come out at the end-never saw it happening this way.
So many got so hurt or died because of rumors with wrong information being sent to others...
Love the brave and courage and those who hold true to others.
Have loved all this author has created but this now sits at the top of my list for this year as the best ever book I've read.
Can't wait to read more form this author-he does his homework!
This is a book that I couldn't easily put down. When I did have to put it down, I was thinking about it and anxious to get back to it.
Williams is a masterful storyteller. It's difficult not to become emotionally invested in his characters. I highly recommend reading 'Rumors' and every other book Williams has written!
Phil M Williams gave you the mindset and point of view of the gossipers and the victims. He brought in the harms of the technology the mass majority uses, Facebook. How it can help tear apart and destroy, how it can help spread the truth. Williams shows both the good and evil in people.
His characters are believable. You root for some, hate others and cry for a few. You watch as real situations unfold. Real meaning situations that are happening all over the country right now. Allegations brought on due to jealousy, blackmail, greed and power.
This is a powerfully written and extremely thought out book. It flows so well that you don’t want to put it down. You need to find out what is going to happen next. How each person is going to dig out of their hole or further compound their situation.
It’s been a while since I have read such a compelling and thought provoking page turner. It will make you think of the type of person you are. What side of the rumor are you on?

I found it difficult to put my Kindle down, I just wanted to see just how things would work out - an intricate story, likeable characters and all put together in a a compelling read. Well worth reading, well done Phil
Real characters - I envisioned the Vice Principal as the "bad" pre-school Head in Daddy Day Care :-o
I liked the headlines of each chapter, the reader knows exactly whose POV he gets along with a hint what to expect.
The whole plot was very informative for me as a German. Our school system is completely different with no school board or conspiring politicians. There is no varsity sport, all sport activities take place on a private level with no connection to the school.
The story enfolds slowly, the reader is always fully informed what is going on.
I will surely read other books by this author.
What can help heal us is a kindred spirit.
Strangers become strangers while enemies get put in their place.
Beautiful story with hope till the end.
