Public library Summary from Goodreads: This is one of the funniest and most romantic YA reads ever.

Oh yea, sure he was drunk but that is NO excuse for any guy to treat you like crap. Because he was hotget it?! The ending was NOT resolved at all. It really tfuth my liking and my rating of this book wayyy down. Why would she spend that much time on writing about Dave-Chloe-Marsh and just leave it like she did?

Then she meets Isaac, the son of a wealthy senator who finds himself in the same position as Kelsey, starting over at a new school. I wanted chaos, consequences, and the fall out to just be more.

Kelsey isn’t blond and Issac isn’t brunette. I loved the way Barnholdt chose to tell this story! The ending is just as disappointing as the rest of it. It was fun, but there are too many open ends, problems left unsolved.


I liked that she would have compassion on a girl she never met, in a bathroom, and try and talk to the girl. Isaac is supposed to be this major playboy and has never loved a girl before, but trkth see nothing of his playboy-ism in this book, LB just says it is so and goes staight to changing him into a one-woman-man. This is the second book I’ve read by this author and I feel like both times the endings are left so open that there is enough room for a sequel.

Something seems to be on her mind besides the whole kissing thing.

I get that she got her heart broken though she wouldn’t have gotten over is so fast is that was really the truthbut why get all emotional with no reason and lie about losing your virginity? Not all the time, but enough for me to notice and start to wonder what she really wants.


One of my favorite things about life yes LIFE are the contemporary YA writers that put out great book after great book. To ask other readers questions about The Thing About the Truthplease sign up.

It was disconcerting as hell and caused serious identity problems for me, but, I loved this book nonetheless. One of those things was that the story went back and forth between the two characters as well as told the story before and after the incident. May 04, M rated it did not like it. And Kelsey is kind of screwed up. This book is alternating the voice of both Kesley and Isaac – the before and the aftermath of the big activity that both of them were planning.


I thought that was really cool because you got the whole entire story that way. A lot of people try to put romance novels down, as if they don’t mean as much as other books just because it involves love and I’m happy that she brought that up.

The Thing About the Truth by Lauren Barnholdt

This book was an interesting contemporary novel. I loved the characters and their interactions with each other. There were a few things I wish had been further explored. It’s always interesting and make me tingly all over it’s male character.

And I loved that.

I want to know the repercussions of their actions! What I Did Not Like: Sure Kelsey beats the mess out of an almost-award-winning smart car that her ex MADE as in his own hands kind of made, but other than that she is a little shallow and self-centered. I love Lauren Barnholdt because she can write a short novel that can shake her readers.

Chloe to me, had more depth and character than any of the others, and I wish I knew how her story ended. I do not think the author clearly explained to us what was going to happen on Face It Down Day. He was surprised bafnholdt Kesley gave him a cold shoulder on their first meeting.
