Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—Normandy Pale has grown up in the shadow of her bright, artistically talented, and temperamental older sister, who as a young teen began publishing a popular graphic novel series. Disconcertingly, "The Diana Chronicles" features warped, exaggerated, but identifiable versions of her family members. Normandy and her hapless parents were greatly relieved when Keira went away to college, but now she's suddenly back, more volatile than ever, and not talking about her experiences or her latest book contract. Normandy is a junior at the Green Pastures Academy of Art and Applied Design, her sister's alma mater. As she and her two close friends reach out in the spirit of friendship and anti-gossip to their peers they learn more than they bargained for in the search for truth and justice. Normandy tells this story, and the more surreal and personal one unraveling at home, as a "narrative nonfiction" project, complete with footnotes, illustrations, and asides to her creative writing teacher. The narrative/book is smart, darkly funny, sad, and heartening as Normandy learns some hard truths, how to stand up for herself, and how to take charge of her own destiny. While there is no reconciliation in sight, there's no doubt that the truth has set her free. A surprising, witty, and compulsive read.—Luann Toth, School Library Journal

Review

PRAISE FOR THE TRUTH COMMISSION

"I absolutely loved The Truth Commission. Every page made me laugh aloud, while all the time the tears were creeping up on me. The characters are so real that I wouldn't be surprised if they knocked on my door right now. I hope they do, I want to spend more time with them." – Jaclyn Moriarty, author of The Year of Secret Assignments and A Corner of White

"Susan Juby is a marvel. Wise, witty, and full of heart, her writing draws you in and won’t let go. And just when you think it can’t get any better, it does.” – Meg Cabot


* "With a deft hand and an open mind, Juby presents many layers of truth. This is a sharp-edged portrait of a dysfunctional family with some thought-provoking ideas about what is real." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

* “Hilarious, deliciously provocative and slyly thought-provoking.” – Kirkus Reviews, starred review
