But the idea was typical and boring, nothing stood out. I just did not feel that connected to Kelseys character. I don’t thinf why I even bothered. All of Barnholdt’s stories that I’ve read anyway are written like this and I believe that it adds to the charm of the characters. And of course, Isaac fed the press its nightly news.

He was pretty irresistible. It’s kind of weird because it seems like it takes away the serious atmosphere yet it makes the characters voice more realistic.

Barnhkldt thing about the truth was an unexpected choice for me… It was a very promising book, with good plot, and likeable ish characteristics… It’s just that the ending was a BIG disappointment, and the main problem that you eventually find out about was blemish….


THE THING ABOUT THE TRUTH by Lauren Barnholdt | Kirkus Reviews

The characters individually were a little intriguing. I was expecting something bigger, and more of a dilemma that leaves your mouth hanging for about barnhodt hour, or two To me, the dilemma that the author created, was a little bit childish, And if I really wanted to read a book like that, I would go to ‘wattpad’….

Another thing that bothering me, like the Chloe-romance thing, ghe the daddy-issues. Ce n’est pas du tout venu me chercher.


There’s this entire build-up we’ve been waiting for, and then it’s over. I wanted thr high school drama as a respite from the more serious books I had been reading recently, so it’s not like I was expecting a life-altering read or anything.

Et Chloe est tout aussi marante.

Barnholdt would extend another chapter to close all the conflicts that she opened which will help me get over this novel! You know the feeling of some kind of cozy rain inside your system and it’s making you blissful or something? This is NOT representative of the school administrations of which I know not that I barnholxt ever gotten in trouble with school administrations.

Their sarcastic sparring, brimming with pride and prejudice and f-bombs, builds a Lizzy-vs. So by the end, I wasn’t exactly happy that I had stuck it out to find out what had happened. When Kelsey teh to make it clear that she is not interested in Isaac, instead of walking away like a good person, he pursues her further.

Feb 20, Tiffani rated it liked it. And they just ignore her. Almost every time and I get pretty irritated about it.


The sad part was, no one would have gotten into as much trouble as Kelsey or Isaac did for throwing a punch. I thought this book flowed pretty well, and it was paced slowly at the beginning and began to pick up quickly at the last quarter of the book. Fast paced, funny, realistic dialogue between teenagers. Can Kelsey move on in a healthy relationship with Isaac while attempting to conceal the truth about her past?

This made him curious about her. On that note, I can see the autor trying to show that Kelsey does not get attention from her parents, which may psychologically lead to her boy problems or something, but even that is a stretch. We find out that Isaac actually got kicked out, too. If there was any doubt about how Kelsey felt for Isaac, there was none for how Isaac felt about Kelsey.
