This stunning novel by E.R. Frank explores what happens when the truth is worse than the rumor.

Twelve-year-old Alex loves her small alternative school. She hangs out with her best friend, Tim, every day, and Simon is the coolest teacher—he’s even starting a soccer team just for them. And then Stacey comes to town. With her tongue-ring and air of confidence, Stacey immediately shakes things up in the classroom. Alex is drawn to her at first, but when Stacey starts rumors that something is going on between Alex and Simon, trouble brews. As the class and Tim begin to believe Stacey’s rumors, Alex starts to doubt what is really true herself. Download and start listening now!

    " I thought this book was very interesting. I thought this because it was intense and sometimes just odd.... Well to me at least. If you read this book you might understand my review. I am highly recommending this book to everyone out there who is 11 and older. For ones who are younger might not understand the lesson to this story. I loved this book.... "

    " I wanted to give this book a 3 but I reallized that other books that I liked a lot more I had given 3 to. I don't think I like this star rating... "

    " Frank does an excellent job of addressing the danger in gossip and the confusion it can cause in young adults. At the same time, it shows a great deal of pain of Stacy and some of the trauma she has endured. Overall, the book asks great questions for teens to consider in this all too common situation. "
