White Lies and Barefaced Truths

Finished this book in 3 hours. It was short and sweet. There was never a boring moment in this book. When you read the first chapter of this book, you immediately think 'typical.' While that may be true, but if you keep reading further, you will automatically notice that this book is not your typical book. What sets this book apart is the main character. Cat is sincere and caring. She puts everyone else first than herself. Her caring nature and how her fourteen year old self handled the boy situation really made me read further. It was Catherine's, aka Cat, personality that made me want to find out what  happens next.
This book is great if you want a relaxing and quick read in the evening. It's short and gets to the point. You also are exposed to many different types of characters in this story and many different emotions. It's not an emotional coaster ride, but a fun and enjoyable ride. The author, Cathy Hopkins, will make you question yourself which is better, lying or telling the truth. Each one has its repercussions and each one can lead to a path of disaster. In the end, it's up to you to decide whether honesty is the best or not hurting someone's feelings and losing a friendship, if the truth can lead to that.
I recommend reading this book because this can happen to anyone, even you. And who know where White Lies and Barefaced Truths will lead you.
