All of This Is True Reviews
This is such a meta mindscrew, and I'm fascinated that someone was able to write all these layers. It's not a twisty book in the sense of shocking surprises, really - think Dangerous Boys rather than Dangerous Girls, where it's more about watching psychological evolution (or its reverse) rather than being stunned by any particular jaw-dropper. If you've ever been fascinated or consumed by an author's cult of personality, this is a must. Even if you haven't, read it anyway - it's an utterly compe ...more
The back of my advance reader copy reads: "FOUR YA-OBSESSED TEENS BEFRIEND THEIR FAVORITE NOVELIST. WHAT HAPPENS NEXT WILL SHOCK YOU." If that's not enough to hook you, please trust me when I say this puzzle of a book is so good that it's maddening.
So this book… is wild. And not much else? I have to admit, I’m a little disappointed, because besides the admittedly amazing concept, there is really not that much to love about this book.
So let’s talk.
All Of This Is True follows four teens who spill their secrets to an NY bestselling author; their favorite, in fact. But when this author writes a book focusing around their real-life struggles, the lines of reality and fiction blur, and the four are put in an awful position.

This book is something else. I really want people to know this. It’s totally different from what I’m used to read, the format of the book itself makes it even more interesting. This story is told through interviews, journal entries, and book excerpts. At first I thought it would be harder to follow the story, but not at all! There is no problem between the different timelines or formats, the story wasn’t dense but extremely fluide! I was also scared I wouldn’t able to tell whom from whom between ...more
When I saw the premise of this book I knew that I wanted to read it. What avid reader does not dream of becoming friends with their favorite author? And then when that favorite author uses their secrets to write a book ... well I knew that I wanted to read this.
The book follows a bunch of high school students (Miri, Penny, Soleil and Jonah) and author Fatima Ro. The kids love the book Undertow. And they are ecstatic when the author shows an interest in them.

I'm confused by my own feelings about this story.
Beetje bizar, grappig en ironisch - echt heel origineel. Oh, en ook niet onbelangrijk: erg lekker vertaald.
So dark, twisty, devious, and a ton of fun, with some serious underpinnings about class, mental health, hero (ine) worship, and pop culture. This book is a must read for 2018. If you love YA, you will love this book. And if you just love page-turners? This is the book for you.
