    This is a well-written novel with a page-turning plot, and others are sure to sing its praises. Great opening lines, a great foursome of friends who call themselves The Faction, and plenty of social issues pack this YA novel with topics for discussion. However, the 17-year-old hero...

    I?ve struggled with this review for a few weeks, because I was stunned. Speechless. Now, I accept the fact that I will never find and assemble accurate words to aptly address my deep desire for everyone to read this book. But, I can?t keep not telling you about My Whole Truth by Mi...

    This was an intense story that had me turning the pages as fast as I could. I read it in a day! The story begins with a violent crime that Seelie gets charged with, even though she was acting in self defense. It happens at the stables she works at, with the basketball star from her sch...

    A high school boy is dead and seventeen year old Seelie (short for Cecilia) stands accused. Was it self-defense or cold-blooded murder? This subject matter is surprisingly dark for a YA novel. The more disturbing parts are glossed over except for one detailed scene that reads like a...

    3.5 stars This book made me realize that I've never read an F/F Romance book. Sure I've read books with side characters that were lesbians, but never one about them, which is a tragedy in itself because seriously, I read an unhealthy amount of their male counterpart- M/M Romance. ...

    My Whole Truth is a YA/Teen book that covers some dark subjects. Told first person from the view of 17 year old Seelie, the book starts with her calling 911 after being attacked by, and subsequently killing, a 20 year old former classmate. Without doubt, a great suspenseful beginning b...

    Not sure where to begin on this one as the storyline was a bit unbelievable but the writing was good and it flowed. There is a small lesbian storyline offshoot for the main character Seelie (Cecelia) and her closest friend Lyssa but it is very minor. The main focus of the book is on Se...

    BE AWARE OF THE TRIGGERS, because there are quite a few and I'm mentioning them in my review too. Another thing I'm mentioning right now is that this is the story of a survivor, written by a survivor and this review is also written by a survivor. Had to be said. I started reading th...

    ?? 3.5 Stars (rounded up) for this story of strength, bravery and truth ? The opening scene of the book is powerful. Seelie is brutally attacked by Shane Mayfield, the son of a well respected and connected local judge. In the throes of defending herself against Shane's vic...

    4 stars. TW for rape. I had pretty low expectations going into this one, but I ended up LOVING it. It's always super refreshing to see a queer relationship (or a queer person at all) in a non contemporary book, especially it being F/F. This book was extraordinary thrilling as we...

    When Seelie is cornered and attacked by Shane, her small town?s golden boy, the situation is clear to her? only one of them gets out alive. She manages to kill Shane in a clear act of self-defense, but not many in her town see it the same way. With city politics intertwined in her ...

    This was my first time reading one of Mischa Thrace's books and I must say that it is a good read and it kept my attention, but it also frustrated me to no end. While I enjoyed reading this book that began in the present and backtracked to a traumatic day (October 21st) for Cecelia "Se...

    'My Whole Truth' is Mischa Thrace's highly anticipated debut novel and it's a solid one at that! Firstly, I have to mention the synopsis - it has to be one of the most powerful and alluring I've ever laid eyes on so kudos to whoever wrote it. It's done its job and then some! Quite ofte...

    Warning: Book contains elements of sexual abuse, murder and bullying. If you get triggered by these subjects, there are plenty of other books out there. On that note, let me begin. Don't let the YA label fool you. If anything it's more than YA. If I'm being honest, this was a diffic...
