Now Andi should have ended up with Duckie i laughed i cried i got furious i laughed I cried I got furious I with my mouth hanging open in an I laughed I cried I got furious I read with my mouth hanging open in an I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING manner I think this is my fave YA so far this earbut I think all adults who work in journalism autobiographical fiction ghostwriting and graphic novels should read it It brings up excellent uestions about who owns stories and what storytellers owe people whose lives become fodder I feel aggrieved that the cover sucks However this is the only fault I found in the entire book Well shit The very best books are those that Death March The Zone you either love or hate The very best books are those that sneak up onour feelings and makes them FUCKING EXPLODE WITH LOVE WITH HATE explode With love with hate bothThis book made me mad really really mad And I also want everyone in the world and their mother to read itI find it really weird that I can t say anything about this book s plot or ideas or themes Because the thing is that The Asian-African Conference, Bandung, Indonesia, April 1955 you must read them forourselfWritten in the way of creative non fiction this book ironically gives the most skewed and partial version of the truth about it s story All the while sticking close to the factsPerception is a thing that always comes into place when Wie man eyn teutsches Mannsbild bey Kräfften hält you describeourselfWhich just goes to show Tomorrow Will Be a Good Day: My Autobiography you truth is not necessarily real Nor is it the whole pictureYou thinkou know what this book is a about families resentment art creativity friendship anti slut shaming growing upAnd then Representation Cultural Representations and Signifying Practices Culture Media and Identities Series you realiseou know nothingHalf of this book and it s million footnotes are worth a uote but it s impossible to uote this without giving away the essential idea of the book That Five fags a day you have to discover the truthourselfAs funny as it was it took me a bit to get into the book And then once I got hooked it took only a slightly longer than allowed lunch hour to read in its entiretyAnyway if Wicked Affairs p 2 you are going to start demanding honesty out of people don t forget to add the reconciliation part toour truth commissionuote by the famous Ygrittethe action of making one view or belief compatible with another THERE I managed to fucking uote the bookIn a somewhat unrelated note the parallels that I m running between my feelings for this book YA realistic fiction coming of age and The Subs Club adult BDSM romance which was my last read are horrifyingly funny I am a resentful bitch and there s no denying it But beautiful friendships is what I m optimistically trying to take away from these books Instead of Jane of Gowlands you know the actual painful truth of myselfFinally it s awfully unnerving that the last footnote and the last shout out of this book is to The Corrections Because no less than I month ago I also had a love hate response to the old love hate response that I had had about it when I was a teen Very appalling feeling it is the absurdity of finding hidden truths aboutourself in it all Actual Rating 35 This review has also been posted on The Social Potato Reasons to read The Truth Commission 1 The Writing Style This book is written in a fun witty style that will make it impossible to stop reading unless The Piper in the Wind you just happen to have exams pop up like I did What makes this book so much fun to read is the fact that it s written as a non fiction novel where the main character is telling her story to the readers I always enjoy reading a book structured like that because it helps forge a strong connect Wanted to see if this is a good as I remember it Yes 5ears later it still holds up Wish there were YA novels like this Smart but in an easy to read fluffy package Why isn t Susan Juby writing 51916 re read for my book club Still infuriatingPretty close to 5 stars for meIt is super funny and The Proposal yet it also made my blood boil with fury There is a character in this story that I haven t seen in YA before and this character made me MAD Also footnotes The I write the I realize that whenou tell a story Prey you shape the truth Whatou leave in what Addicted to Womanhood Book One you leave out every word and every emphasis changes the meaning Writers create the truth for better or worse This book really affected me I don t know that I have ever read a book that manages to be so lighthearted and humourous andet so increasingly horrific and infuriating as it moves along There are so many things to praise about this book that I don t know where to start Also uite ironically for a book called The Truth Commission I ve got to be careful what I tell Batman: Arkham Asylum - A Serious House on Serious Earth you I don t want to give away the dark depths this seemingly light book is headed towards But let me just agree with all the reviewers who said this it will makeou madAnd the thing is for most of this book I thought I was already mad I mean T einem ihrer beiden Teamkollegen was oder gar mit beiden Was die drei besten Freunde allerdings damit lostreten hätten sie nie geahnt Ein kluges Buch über Freundschaft Liebe und die Frage was wir mit uns und unserem Leben anfangen und was das eigentlich alles zu bedeuten hat Verlagstext. It might make some readers mad and it will leave many wanting to talk but that would nail home the point perfectly 45 starsThis had strong resonances with two of this ear s Book Battle books made me think of another one a few times and I bet if I had time and will I could come up with connections The two were The Vigilante Poets of Selwyn Academy and The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone It s not a major leap with a somewhat unreliable narrator who s *a teen in an art school and with uestions of how much integrity people will *teen in an art school and with uestions of how much integrity people will in the face of the lure of profit I really liked the voices of both Ethan Vigilante Poets and Normandy Truth Commission which takes care of a lot of feelings about a book right there But The Truth Commission kept on surprising me and one of those surprises was how absolutely wonderful the school the Green Pastures Academy of Art Applied Design was It s uirky and exaggerated enough that it doesn t come across as simply idealized or sentimental but how fantastic is it to have a school with wonderful teachers fantastic student counselor and enough resources to stand up for students interests when they ve nobody else Normandy s humour in describing it and herself and fellow art students also keeps it from being too much If there s one thing we learn at Green Pastures other than the fact that in some cases s one thing we learn at Green Pastures other than the fact that in some cases can pay very well it s that there is help available to us if we get overwhelmed As art students we are presumed to have few practical life skills and to be less stable overall Casual observation would suggest that this is a safe assessment At GP students get upset over a ambition outstripping ability b lack of sleep c sexual and drug experimentation done in an effort to prove oneself talented Of course sex and drugs done strictly as an artistic affection are just as powerful as they are if ou do them with the purpose of getting loaded It s a painful lesson that must be learned by every art student who assumes that if they wear ironic hats surely they should be able to have ironic sex and do ironic drugs As I said I also thought immediately of Addison Stone because there s a very talented Successful Employee Communications young artist who gets than her fair share of special treatment because of her talent That is not Normandy but rather her sister and the crucial for me difference between the two books is that Juby shows how appalling the cost is to everyone when adults fail to hold theoung artist accountable for her behaviour Norm s sister Keira is a graphic artist whose comics portray and exploit her family her parents and Normandy shown in grossly distorted ways to their humilation and hurt and her fame and profit It s ugly and while Normandy starts off responding in typical abused child manner still craving Keira s approval she finally manages to speak up and say that what Keira has done is wrong and she s never consented view spoilerThe rape storyline of Flounder her alter ego in the invented world and the way Keira lied to Normandy to get the reactions she wanted is horrific It s heartbreaking that neither their parents nor Keira herself would see this and acknowledge how wrong Keira s behaviour was hide spoiler I ADORED this HOLY CRAP Thought provoking funny distressing and cathartic but not in a bullshit way As my 13 Vikings in Wales An Archaeological uest year old Josie who also loved it pointed out John Green should WISH he could write uirkyet real characters like this The conceit This is make believe narrative non fiction by an 11th grader at an art school creating a writing project to go along with her elaborate embroideries in fabric and thread about her friends attempts to get people to tell the truth about things hence the title as well as her growing awareness of her own family s lack of truth telling all accompanied by doodly illustrations in the margins and amusing Foster Wallace esue footnotes Our narrator s sister is a famous graphic novelist who has mined the family s life for her work and created a very unflattering version of her parents and sister And IN ACTUAL FACT this a novel by a grown up person an art school teacher who hired one of her former students to do the little interstitial drawings aw Basically it s a story about truth in which unreliable narrators AHOY It depicts lovely friendships a fucked up family a bunch of art students with all their pretensions and endearing ness not a word I know plus tons of delightful fashion and a character with a passionate love of movies There is adorable taxidermy There s even a perfect John Hughes esue self consciously romantic scene Now that I think about it this is a book for people who Aus ihrer Schule eine Frage stellen die bisher keiner auszusprechen wagte obwohl alle nach der Antwort lechzenHasst die ewig grantige Sekretärin wirklich alle Schüler ist der schöne Tyler jetzt schwul oder nicht nimmt der Freak aus der 12 Drogen und hat die Coole aus dem Langlaufteam mi. ,

I have such mixed feelings on this book On the one hand the story was interesting to keep me up all night finishing it which is a commendable feat And the framing device is interesting albeit flawed I think adults who enjoy YA lit would probably find this to be an interesting read But on the other hand it teaches kids the target audience some terrible lessons Let s dive right into the negatives shall we On the surface this seems like a great book for teaching important life lessons It covers things like slut shaming and sexuality with a moderate amount of care but unfortunately it also has an apparently straight female character reclaiming a slur historically used against gay men an unironic use of the term friend zone and the excusing of cultural appropriation as long as the offenders are sweetly committed pretenders who weren t hurting anyone with their delusions I d rate this 45 starsWill the truth really set ou free In Susan Juby s uirky and enjoyable The Truth Commission three art students believe so and strive to compel their fellow students to expressing the truth about the various situations they re in but they don t realize that the truth comes at a price and that facing our own truths may cause difficulty than ou realizeNormandy Pale is a student at the Green Pastures that facing our own truths may cause difficulty than ou realizeNormandy Pale is a student at the Green Pastures of Art and Applied Design in Nanaimo British Columbia Canada She is a tremendously talented artist and embroiderer trouble is she lives in the shadow of her older sister Keira also a graduate of Green Pastures Keira became famous with a series of graphic novels that lampooned Normandy and their parents but their parents don t seem to care and only seem to indulge Keira s behaviorOne day Normandy and her two best friends Neil and Dusk whose real name is Dawn gotta love it launch what they call The Truth Commission designed to get their fellow classmates to reveal their not so secret secrets As they start uestioning their peers they find the whole process tremendously empowering although they re not the ones telling the truth but their efforts start an interesting domino like effect across the school which has both positive and negative resultsBut the truth that Normandy finds herself most compelled to uncover is the truth about Keira who left her university studies
And Returned Home Ostensibly 
returned home ostensibly write the next installment in her graphic novel series Keira is acting eccentric than ever and Normandy can t uite understand why their parents won t get to the bottom of what s going on with her And then without warning Keira starts to confide in Normandy about an incident that has left her shaken Normandy faces the ultimate dilemma as she and her friends pursue their search for other people to reveal their truths should she try to do the same with Keira Will anyone care if she doesThis was a warm amusing and utterly engaging book populated with really intriguing characters While so many of the issues the characters dealt with are familiar Juby makes ou care about her characters so Pilgrimage in Medieval Scotland: (Historic Scotland Series) you want to keep reading The book is ostensibly Normandy s junior project in school so it s a reflection on the events that occurred and how they made her feel along with her wry and sometimes off topic observations even some drawings here and thereI don t know howou read a book but this one has a lot of footnotes mostly Normandy s observations and comments to the readers of her manuscript When ou read a book with footnotes on a Kindle ou have to click back and forth between the footnote and the text so it took a little longer to get through the text and sometimes the footnotes didn t advance the story that much But in the end it s a tiny irritation that didn t dampen my enthusiasm for this terrific book in the slightestSee all of my reviews at I was surprised by how much I liked this book I went into it thinking it was some light entertainment but don t be fooled by the sweet cover This story is clever and thoughtful and definitely not fluff I will definitely keep an eye on this author and recommend this book to fans of clever YA fictionFind reviews and bookish fun at Told as narrative non fiction Normandy Pale s story is about getting to the bottom of her famous graphic novelist sister s strange return home from college This is a funny at times out loud laughter and clever and The earth; an introduction to physical geology yet deep and thoughtful look at relationships about the intricacies of families and about truth and creative truth telling Juby s book is about who gets to tellour story and how they get to spin it as well as what the implications of those things may be A seriously DELIGHTFUL read. Ein Häppchen Wahrheit gefällig Oder darf's doch ein bisschen mehr seinDas Leben ist nichts für Feiglinge denken sich die drei Freunde Dusk Neil und Normandy zu Beginn des 11 Schuljahres und starten ein gewagtes Experiment Einmal jede Woche wird abwechselnd einer der drei einem Menschen. .
