I rarely participate in cover reveals and pre-book release press but this title had me interested even before I saw the ‘lil street art homage in the design. The designer is Christian Fuenfhausen.
SYNOPSIS: Everyone has a lot to say about Alice Franklin, and it’s stopped mattering whether it’s true. The rumors started at a party when Alice supposedly had sex with two guys in one night. When school starts everyone almost forgets about Alice until one of those guys, super-popular Brandon, dies in a car wreck that was allegedly all Alice’s fault. Now the only friend she has is a boy who may be the only other person who knows the truth, but is too afraid to admit it. Told from the perspectives of popular girl Elaine, football star Josh, former outcast Kelsie, and shy genius Kurt, we see how everyone has a motive to bring – and keep – Alice down. (The book is slated to be released in June).
Written by Houston resident, Jennifer Mathieu (pronounced Muh-two, but if you speak French you can pronounce it better than that – sadly, Jennifer doesn’t speak French), The Truth About Alice is sure to illicit great discussions and a few laughs. Jennifer is a native of the East Coast and a former journalist, she enjoys writing contemporary young adult fiction that treats teenagers like real people. She loves to eat and hates to cook.
If you are attending the Young Adult SUPER event of the weekend: ATBF look for her there! She’ll be giving away bookmarks.
You can also find Jennifer all over social media. She’s one of my favorite pop culture nerds.
