The Truth About You by Amanda Grace 2013

Smart girls aren¡¯t supposed to do stupid things.

On her first day at Green River Community College, Madelyn Hawkins meets Bennett Cartwright, her biology professor. He¡¯s funny. He¡¯s interested. And he has no idea that Madelyn is only sixteen.

When they¡¯re together, Madelyn feels more alive than she¡¯s ever felt before. And she knows Bennett feels the same way. She also knows that if she tells him her real age, their relationship will be over.

So Madelyn makes a simple decision. She won¡¯t tell him.

Praise: "Grace...treats delicate issues with honesty and control."¡ªPUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Editorial Reviews From School Library Journal Gr 8-10-Madelyn Hawkins is a first-year student at Green River Community College in Enumclaw, Washington. Ever since she was young, her father has pushed her to succeed, and her parents have big plans for her to attend an Ivy League school. On her first day of college, she meets Bennett Cartwright, her handsome and smart biology professor. The attraction between the two of them is palpable, yet they know they can't have a relationship because of his position. They look forward to the day that their class ends so that they can be together at last, but there's something that Madelyn still hasn't told Bennett. She's only 16, enrolled in a program called Running Start, which allows her to earn high school and college credit simultaneously. Madelyn knows that he is already struggling with the idea of dating an 18-year-old, so she decides not to reveal her age, knowing full well that the truth will eventually catch up with her. As readers know from the start, the relationship is doomed to fail, landing Bennett in hot water with the college. Grace tells the story through a letter that Madelyn writes, hoping to clear Bennett's name. She is the only character who is really developed, with others remaining flat and one-dimensional. Although at times the narrative can be a little repetitive, the pacing builds solidly toward the climax, and the sense of passion and urgency is sustained throughout. Not a must-read but recommended for fans of "forbidden love" stories.-Jessica Ko, Los Angeles Public Library, CA¦Á(c) Copyright 2013.
