I ADORED this HOLY CRAP Thought provoking funny distressing and cathartic but not in a bullshit way As my 13 year old Josie who also loved it pointed out John Green should WISH he could write uirky yet real characters like this The conceit This is make believe narrative non fiction by an 11th grader at an art school creating a writing project to go along with her elaborate embroideries in fabric and thread about her friends attempts to get people to tell the truth about things hence the title as well as her growing awareness of her own family s lack of truth telling all accompanied by doodly illustrations in the margins and amusing Foster Wallace esue footnotes Our narrator s sister is a famous graphic novelist who has mined the family s life for her work and created a very unflattering version of her parents and sister And IN ACTUAL FACT this a novel by a grown up person an art school teacher who hired one of her former students to do the little interstitial drawings aw Basically it s a story about truth in which unreliable narrators AHOY It depicts lovely friendships a fucked up family a bunch of art students with all their pretensions and endearing ness not a word I know plus tons of delightful fashion and a character with a passionate love of movies There is adorable taxidermy There s even a perfect John Hughes esue self consciously romantic scene Now that I think about it this is a book for people who know Andi should have ended up with Duckie I laughed I cried I got furious I read with my mouth hanging open in an OMG I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING manner I think this is my fave YA so far this yearbut I think all adults who work in journalism autobiographical fiction ghostwriting and graphic novels should read it It brings up excellent uestions about who owns stories and what storytellers owe people whose lives become fodder I feel aggrieved that the cover sucks However this is the only fault I found in the entire book

Actual Rating 35 This review has also been posted on The Social Potato Reasons to read The Truth Commission 1 The Writing Style This book is written in a fun witty style that will make it impossible to stop reading unless you just happen to have exams pop up like I did What makes this book so much fun to read is the fact that it s written as a non fiction novel where the main character is telling her story to the readers I always enjoy reading a book structured like that because it helps forge a strong connection between the reader and the main character IMO It helps you get to know them better and through the main character s writing their characteristics shine through That was definitely the case in this book and the footnotes made it all the charming2 THE FOOTNOTES Holy crap those footnotes were SO MUCH FUN TO READ That is all I have to say3 The Main Character Normandy is one of the most relateable main characters ever and I LOVED reading her story I am not even sure what exactly makes her so fun to read about In part it s probably the writing style but I also think it s just her She is so real She is in denial about her feelings about a certain someone she can also be envious of other people without even acknowledging the fact she is envious but she is also a great friend and person She is someone who internalizes her feelings but given the way she grew up with a speshul snowflake sister I am not surprised I loved watching Normandy find her inner strength and watching her shine like the awesome human she is4 The Friendships The relationships in this novel are complex but the bond between Normandy and her friends is great That isn t to say they never had any sort of drama but its understandable drama because no friendship is perfect And none of the individuals within this group are What is also awesome is the people they meet along their journey to seek the truth and the bonds they forge with other people5 The Plot The way things unfold in the book is brilliant It adds a layer of mystery to book and if you know me you know how I love my mystery I also just love how people and things come together in this bookOther awesome things include some Diversity deals with slut shaming to a certain degree lack of ANNOYING drama A Few Criticisms 1 Kiera AKA Norm s older famous sister Kiera was a character with potential and I feel like that potential remained unrealized Maybe I just kept on wanting something positive between her and Norm and when things turned out the way they did I ended up feeling disappointed2 Norm s family Norm s parents aren t the worst parents in town but they aren t winning any awards either Their passiveness just rubbed me the wrong way and I wish they were able to stand up for themselves but also for Norm I would like to say that I do like how things ended with Norm and her dad but I still wanted 3 I cannot say much else because spoilersbut the way rape was used in the novel bothered me It isn t used in a really horrible or even realllly offensive but it just doesn t work for me as a reader and left me with a bad taste in my mouth It wasn t enough to ruin the book for me but I do think the issue could have been handled differentlyVerdict This is a book I d definitely recommend There is only one thing that really bothered me but I was still able to enjoy the book and hopefully you will too since it is so much

free read Ô E-book, or Kindle E-pub ñ Susan Juby Susan Juby ñ 9 summary review The Truth Commission T einem ihrer beiden Teamkollegen was oder gar mit beiden Was die drei besten Freunde allerdings damit lostreten hätten sie nie geahnt Ein kluges Buch über Freundschaft Liebe und die Frage was wir mit uns und unserem Leben anfangen und was das eigentlich alles zu bedeuten hat Verlagstext. I d rate this 45 starsWill the truth really set you free In Susan Juby s uirky and enjoyable The Truth Commission three art students believe so and strive to compel their fellow students to expressing the truth about the various situations they re in but they don t realize that the truth comes at a price and that facing your own truths may cause difficulty than you realizeNormandy Pale is a student at the Green Pastures Academy of Art and Applied Design in Nanaimo British Columbia Canada She is a tremendously talented artist and embroiderer trouble is she lives in the shadow of her older sister Keira also a graduate of Green Pastures Keira became famous with a series of graphic novels that lampooned Normandy and their parents but their parents don t seem to care and only seem to indulge Keira s behaviorOne day Normandy and her two best friends Neil and Dusk whose real name is Dawn gotta love it launch what they call The Truth Commission designed to get their fellow classmates to reveal their not so secret secrets As they start uestioning their peers they find the whole process tremendously empowering although they re not the ones telling the truth but their efforts start an interesting domino like effect across the school which has both positive and negative resultsBut the truth that Normandy finds herself most compelled to uncover is the truth about Keira who left her university studies and returned home ostensibly to write the next installment in her graphic novel series Keira is acting eccentric than ever and Normandy can t uite understand why their parents won t get to the bottom of what s going on with her And then without warning Keira starts to confide in Normandy about an incident that has left her shaken Normandy faces the ultimate dilemma as she and her friends pursue their search for other people to reveal their truths should she try to do the same with Keira Will anyone care if she doesThis was a warm amusing and utterly engaging book populated with really intriguing characters While so many of the issues the characters dealt with are familiar Juby makes you care about her characters so you want to keep reading The book is ostensibly Normandy s junior project in school so it s a reflection on the events that occurred and how they made her feel along with her wry and sometimes off topic observations even some drawings here and thereI don t know how you read a book but this one has a lot of footnotes mostly Normandy s observations and comments to the readers of her manuscript When you read a book with footnotes on a Kindle you have to click back and forth between the footnote and the text so it took a little longer to get through the text and sometimes the footnotes didn t advance the story that much But in the end it s a tiny irritation that didn t dampen my enthusiasm for this terrific book in the slightestSee all of my reviews at
