Blurb from Goodreads:

"Everyone knows Alice slept with two guys at one party. When Healy High star quarterback Brandon Fitzsimmons dies in a car crash, it was because he was sexting with Alice. Ask anybody.

Rumor has it Alice Franklin is a slut. It's written all over the "slut stall" in the girls' bathroom: "Alice had sex in exchange for math test answers" and "Alice got an abortion last semester." After Brandon dies, the rumors start to spiral out of control. In this remarkable debut novel, four Healy High students tell all they "know" about Alice-and in doing so reveal their own secrets and motivations, painting a raw look at the realities of teen life. But in this novel from Jennifer Mathieu, exactly what is the truth about Alice? In the end there's only one person to ask: Alice herself."


I'm....actually at a loss for words when it comes to this was a pretty good book, yes. But it wasn't THAT good....


So. The Truth About Alice.

The different characters that tell about what they know about Alice was....nice. Oh! There was this one character, Kelsie, that I really couldn't stand. I mean, yes, I see why she would act the way she does......but.......UGH.

The super short chapters were also a nice surprise.


Gosh, I really don't know what else to say...this book was just.....good.
Ever heard any vicious rumors about your friends?  
People you know?
