Best first-time sex scene in her career- Katherine Tegen about Truest by debut author @jackieleawrites #harperpreview — Shelley (Diaz) Vale (@sdiaz101) May 8, 2015
The view from Goodreads:
“Truest is one of those books that will destroy you in the best way possible. Truest is more than a book: it’s a window, a conversation.”
“Truest is a gorgeously-written, carefully researched and well thought out story. It made me think more deeply than many novels written for adults that I have read. I would give it 10 stars if I could.”
“This is an outstanding debut, charming, funny, unbelievably moving and a deep sort of soul searching. This book was moving in a completely unexpected way, it just sort of hit me out of nowhere. If you are looking for a novel with depth, power and beauty, then Truest is the book for you.”
“Fans of John Green will devour this once-in-a-generation novel.”
“Characters so real and developed that I’ve been missing them since I finished.”

Reblogged this on B.Stro Blog and commented:
I’m trying to write a book review. I say trying because–reading other reviews–I realize it’s a daunting task. How the heck do I do this work any justice?
I loved this book. Jackie Lea Sommers is thoughtful, creative, smart. I’m so excited for this book to make it’s debut. Readers everywhere should get excited about the story of Westlin Beck and Silas and Laurel Hart.
So, I’m working on a review that does this book justice. For now, here’s what others have to say.
