Blurb: "My life was close to being perfect until my brother Alex got killed. Then my mother started drinking and my father started having sex with Donna, my best friend’s stepmother. She’s not even thirty years old."

With an equal mix of joy and sorrow, All That’s True follows Andi’s poignant—and sometimes laugh out loud—journey to young adulthood, where she struggles with the elusive nature of truth and the devastating consequences of deception.

Review: LOL! All I can say is WOW. I love to read. I don't box myself into one genre, I like to read a variety. My main thing is the blurb. It has to grab me. With this one, not only did the blurb catch my interest but the story was a hoot to follow.

I really enjoyed tagging along on this youngsters journey and seeing how she dealt with all the things that came her way. A wonderful, insightful story that really captured the "feel" of youth and what it is like to grow up when things are not all peaches and cream.

Ms Miles has done a wonderful job sharing this youthfull tale with readers. Not only did it capture...and keep my attention, but it was totally entertaining and hit on many points that can and do face our youth. Great Read!!!
