I have a tough time reviewing this one. It was really odd and unexpected but I can see what the author was trying to do. It worked for the most part, but I kept feeling like I was reading a writing workshop exercise. Not how I wanted to feel at the end of a book. At the end, I kind of scratched my head and realized where the story was going. Interesting, but just didn't mesh completely. ( )

Is Micah a werewolf? Is Micah a boy? Is Micah ever telling the truth? ( )

Fun though a bit frustrating; really pushes "unreliable narrator" as far as it will go.

It took me FOREVER to finish this book. Mostly, because it's not so much a genre a love, as I tend to avoid realistic fiction because (for me) it can often be a bit of a downer. I kept forcing myself to read a little more and then a little more and just a bit more. Then I hit just over half way through and the story surprised me so much I had to keep reading.

I didn't love the full book, but I think it's a great book to discuss. So much to talk about! And I really feel like the teens (particularly Micah)read very very true to life.

Also, if you're like me, you may have read other reviews that talk about avoiding spoilers. It's true, the book is super surprising and kind of amazing if you don't know what's coming. And part of the fun of discussing it is talking about your expectations before the story springs its major surprise on you.

If you do read it, come talk to me! I have thinky thoughts. ( )

I basically swallowed this book whole in a single day, constantly fidgeting towards it to get one more sliver of information, one more piece of the puzzle. And the way not all the pieces are from the same puzzle just made it all the more fascinating.

People who don't enjoy some-assembly-required (ok, maybe quite a bit of assembly) reading are not going to enjoy this. People who want a straightforward story with a non-slippery resolution should look elsewhere. But people who love unreliable narration and like to be rewarded for teasing the little details out of sentences (...yeah, that'd be me) have something rare and wriggling here. (There's a strong if slightly spoilery reference to Holly Black's [b:White Cat|6087756|White Cat (Curse Workers, #1)|Holly Black|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1358274572s/6087756.jpg|6264661] in the text, which made me laugh out loud, and the two books have many resemblances, but at the end of the day, White Cat is still a much more straightforward tale than this twisty, sneaky snarl. I love them both in different ways.)

One thing I particularly enjoyed was the strong presence of race, particularly in the first quarter to a third of the book. With the race of all characters strongly established, it meant every action and interaction of the book carried a faint question of "is this a race thing?" which strikes me as being a very realistic state of being - as real as my constant uncertainty, in day to day life, of "is this a gender thing?" Of course, it also provides a solid grounding for later themes and issues. Clever work by the author.

(Actually, after further thought on comparisons, I'd probably liken this most strongly to Gary Crew's [b:Strange Objects|2452438|Strange Objects|Gary Crew|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1254135101s/2452438.jpg|2459632], bearing in mind it's been about twenty years since I read it, but that book also left me with a reeling sensation best depicted visually by a cloud of punctuation. "What did I just read? It was great! What happened? Did he...? Did she...? OMG!") ( )

The chilling story that she spins will have readers' hearts racing as in three sections she goes from "Telling the Truth," to "Telling the True Truth," to "Telling the Actual Real Truth," uncovering previous lies and revealing bizarre occurrences in the process. Micah's narrative is convincing, and in the end readers will delve into the psyche of a troubled teen and decide for themselves the truths and lies. This one is sure to generate discussion.
