This was going to be the year Normandy Pale came into her own. The year she emerged from her older sister’s shadow—and Kiera, who became a bestselling graphic novelist before she even graduated from high school, casts a long one. But it hasn’t worked out that way, not quite. So Normandy turns to her art and writing, and the “truth commission” she and her friends have started to find out the secrets at their school. It’s a great idea, as far as it goes—until it leads straight back to Kiera, who has been hiding some pretty serious truths of her own.

Susan Juby’s The Truth Commission is a story about easy truths, hard truths, and those things best left unsaid.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A smart, savvy YA novel about what constitutes the truth; its ideas will linger long after the last page.”

    Shelf Awareness (starred review)

  • “With a deft hand and an open mind, Juby presents many layers of truth. This is a sharp-edged portrait of a dysfunctional family with some thought-provoking ideas about what is real.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “The narrative/book is smart, darkly funny, sad, and heartening as Normandy learns some hard truths, how to stand up for herself, and how to take charge of her own destiny. While there is no reconciliation in sight, there’s no doubt that the truth has set her free. A surprising, witty, and compulsive read.”

    School Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Juby’s bright dialogue and vivid, appealing characters draw readers along as the three young artists navigate truths both light and dark, discovering themselves in the process.”

    Horn Book (starred review)

  • “Hilarious, deliciously provocative, and slyly thought-provoking.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review

  • “The power of the story comes through its careful exploration of exposing truth and its outcomes…and if there are truths best left unspoken.”

    Children’s Literature

  • “Narrator Kate Rudd weaves together Norm’s clever commentary, satiric humor, and breezy, erudite style…When the lens of truth focuses on Norm’s family, particularly on her manipulative sister, Rudd increases emotional intensity. Rudd’s dramatization emphasizes Norm’s development from passivity to assertiveness as she learns to stand up for her beliefs. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
