“From the author of Moxie comes a startling book about stereotypes, slut shaming and the battle for popularity. In this remarkable novel, four Healy High students - the party girl, the car accident survivor, the ex best friend and the boy next door - tell all they know. But exactly what is the truth about Alice? In the end there’s only one person to ask: Alice herself.”

Jennifer Mathieu is quickly making a name for herself within YA as a feminist voice to be reckoned with. The Truth About Alice is another smash-hit that deals with toxic masculinity and slut-shaming in an accessible and powerful way.

Mathieu’s use of multiple perspectives took me on an emotional rollercoaster that made me unable to put the book down.

The Truth About Alice is a short and punchy burst of brilliant feminist YA that every teenager should read.
