“This story is unapologetically honest, deeply resonant, and told in gorgeous, vibrant prose.”
“I just finished Truest and I love it! It is beautiful and sad and hopeful and real all at the same time.”
“Occam’s razor — if you’ve never heard of it, you’ve never read Truest. The principle says that among two competing theories, the simplest explanation is the better of the two. Yet the characters in Truest struggle for answers to questions that lack simple explanations. The story perfectly balances both sadness and joy, darkness and light. It doesn’t offer easy answers, but instead suggests that perhaps even in the darkest times, we can find love, hope, and maybe even peace.”
“Truest captured my attention from the first line and held it tight until the last. Jackie Lea Sommers writes with piercing insight and fresh lyricism, evoking every sense and emotion. Fans of John Green will be awed by this rich, funny, thought-provoking book that belongs on everyone’s bookshelf.”
