From the author of My Life Next Door comes a swoony summertime romance full of expectation, regret, humor, and hard questions.

Gwen Castle’s biggest mistake ever, Cassidy Somers, is slumming it as a yard boy on her Nantucket-esque island this summer. He’s a rich kid from across the bridge in Stony Bay, and she hails from a family of fishermen and house cleaners who keep the island’s summer people happy. Gwen worries a life of cleaning houses will be her fate too, but just when it looks like she’ll never escape her past—or the island—Gwen’s dad gives her some shocking advice. Sparks fly and secret histories unspool as Gwen spends a gorgeous, restless summer struggling to resolve what she thought was true—about the place she lives, the people she loves, and even herself—with what really is.

A magnetic, push-me-pull-me romance with depth, What I Thought Was True is for fans of Sarah Dessen, Jenny Han, and Deb Caletti.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Fitzpatrick’s thoughtful and genuine love story shows the clash between classes in a New England beach community that’s home to two types of people: those who live in mansions, and those who serve them…Fitzpatrick once again evokes the dizzying heights of adolescent passion while remaining down-to-earth.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “This novel tells a beautiful story of first love and although some of the background information is slow to be revealed, Gwen’s character has the kind of depth and voice that will enchant teens.”

    School Library Journal

  • “What starts out as snappy chick-lit writing quickly becomes deeper and more complex, as Fitzpatrick beautifully portrays a teenager’s wobbly foray into sex as well as her dawning awareness of the power that actions and incautiously chosen words have to hurt others.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Girls looking for a Sarah Dessen-esque romance that is a cut above the usual…will be delighted with Fitzpatrick’s fast-paced What I Thought Was True.”
