Today Truest, a YA contemporary, by Jackie Lea Sommers has been released into the world. I am so excited for this book and can’t wait to read it.
Here’s a bit about it:
Silas Hart has seriously shaken up Westlin Beck’s small-town life. Brand new to town, Silas is different than the guys in Green Lake. He’s curious, poetic, philosophical, maddening– and really, really cute. But Silas has a sister– and she has a secret. And West has a boyfriend. And life in Green Lake is about to change forever.
Truest is a stunning, addictive debut. Romantic, fun, tender, and satisfying, it asks as many questions as it answers.
Here are a few teasers:
