This book... was amazing! The characters were so relatable and open with how everything happened. This story was told though interviews, book excerpts, emails, and text messages. This really brought this story to life and made it seem like this could have actually happened. This book dived into the secrets that we keep, the friendships we make, and just how far some people are willing to go for fame, friendship, and to hide from their past.

In this YA thriller, what happens when your favorite author manipulates you for material for their next book? This is very well done, and I was most drawn to the format of the book, which is told through interviews, journals, and book excerpts. I also got my copy signed/met the author at the Brooklyn Book Festival, and she's really cool! Definitely check it out if you love YA, thrillers, or both.

Another book chosen in my reading club during July. I couldn't go to book discussion.A YA novel about 4 young fellows that became obsessed with a writer. They even became "unconditional friends". Then the writer publish a novel in which these five persons are the plot of the novel & secrets & scandals are revealed. Coincidence? Betray? Do you believe in absolution, the cleansing of the mind body and soul?3⭐️Written like interviews style. It's ok.

I'm only like 10 pages in and I just want to sit down and swallow this book whole. Love the idea of a novel inside a novel. There is also this air of mystery since we dont know what Miri, Soleil, Penny and Fatima are hiding. Told in the form of interviews, blog posts and the fictional novel itself, this book is like pretty little liars and gossip girl had a beautiful intriguing book baby. #summerreading #thrillers #youngadult #dogsoflitsy

This was one of those books that I enjoyed while I was reading it. But once done I completely moved on mentally. A pretty meta books about teens meeting an author they love and then staying in her life. They influence her next book and it makes things complicated.

Super quick read! This was my first shot at a YA book and I am intrigued to find another. It started out as a “chic-flic” type novel but between the plot twist and some of the in-depth writing it was a superb novel!

This was an addictive, quick YA read that I enjoyed. I was in the mood for this sort of thing-it pulls you in with a mysterious tragedy that is slowly revealed.

All of This is True details what unfolds when a group of teens meet their idol, twentysomething author Fatima Ro, and find her everything they'd dreamed her to be and more. The author writes herself into their lives with the intensity of a cult leader. But when Ro's new novel comes out, the teens discover they weren't just the author's friends; they were characters she'd been using to fuel the arc of her narrative.
