ARC Review: The Lies About Truth by Courtney C. Stevens

The Lies About Truth
Author: Courtney C. Stevens
Publication Date: November 3, 2015 by HarperTeen

Sadie Kingston, is a girl living in the aftermath. A year after surviving a car accident that killed her friend Trent and left her body and face scarred, she can’t move forward. The only person who seems to understand her is Trent’s brother, Max. 
As Sadie begins to fall for Max, she's unsure if she is truly healed enough to be with him — even if Max is able to look at her scars and not shy away. But when the truth about the accident and subsequent events comes to light, Sadie has to decide if she can embrace the future or if she'll always be trapped in the past.
I'm so sorry, this is so late, and I haven't posted anything in months. I'm sorry.
I wrote this review in November, and I never scheduled. I'm sorry.

I received an E-ARC from HarperCollins through Edelweiss (thank you so much!). This does not change or affect my thoughts. All the quotes are not final, and were quoted just to show their beauty. I do hope that my favorite quotes from this book are in the final thing!
If nothing changes, nothing changes. If you keep doing what you're doing, you're going to keep getting what you're getting. You want change, make some.
THIS IS SO GREAT. Like story plus the quotes equals bam. I actually featured this book on my birthday Waiting on Wednesday post, and I'm glad I wanted to read this one since, like June. Hahahaha.

Okay so first of all, while I'm still a bit fangirly, I LOVE THE COVER.

The theme. The Lies About Truth was about forgiveness and letting go, and friendship. I felt like their friendship was strong. The romance in this book wasn't the "feeeelllssss!!!" kind of romance, and that was right for the theme.

The quotes.  I love, love the quotes. I did screenshot several times to remember them. Quotes legit make me like books more.
Maybe forgiveness was giving the past less power to hurt me. Or even building new memories that were stronger than the painful ones.
The parents.  This is a big plus. Sadie's parents support her, but she's not spoiled or anything. In a lot of stories, parents aren't shown that much, and I love how the parents (mainly Sadie's) were really part of the story. Plus, they're cool. They always remind their children to watch their language.

The ending felt right, I can't find the right word to describe it, but for now, let's say peaceful.

RATING: 4.75/5
