Editorial Reviews Amazon. Gr 9 Up—Healy, Texas, is a small town where everyone knows each other's business, and the scandals that unfold around Alice Franklin are no exception. The book is told from alternating points of view, and four of Alice's classmates provide accounts of heavy drinking and rumors about Alice's promiscuity. Readers are told that the title character had sex with two boys at the same party, sent obsessive texts that led to the death one of the boys, and had an abortion.
As the story unfolds, Alice is called a slut and a skank, is abandoned by her best friend, is ostracized by everyone, and endures a "slut stall" in the girl's bathroom filled with derogatory graffiti. As more is revealed, each narrator shares elements of culpability for the rumors and mistreatment of Alice, and teens are introduced to the potential damage that rumors and lies bring. Though certain participants in the rumor mill feel bad and readers get the sense that Alice heals from the horrible events while developing a meaningful relationship, the treatment of such serious topics is cursory at best.
Mathieu skims the harmful topics of slut-shaming, rumors, and lies in a way that places this title in the ranks of books like the "Gossip Girl" series by Cecily von Ziegesar Little, Brown as opposed to more thought-provoking titles like The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney Little, Brown, Strock, Chicago Public Library.

Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney
A very well-done book about high school stereotypes and the reactions those stereotypes evoke. The book is divided into chapters, each told by one of four students: It worked well Unfortunately, it just didn't interest me much. I feel this is definitely aimed at a younger audience I'm If you enjoy this type of book, however, this one is VERY well done. I enjoyed this book so much, I had to write a review. This could easily have been high school back in my day. Maybe my classmates I remember from high school didn't start any vicious rumors about someone to this extreme, but many were just as mean and weak - acting like a-holes just to try to fit in.
Things haven't changed, except I think now there's a little better awareness of bullying than back then.
The characters narrating this story are so well developed. Each telling their point of view in a different chapter, in their own different style really gives us a better idea of their personalities and who they are. Elaine is the popular girl - so popular, she'll tell you all about how "powerful" she is at this school.
Most importantly though I think the true underlying thing that really hit was that rumors are just rumors and that you can overcome them and that if you have kids that you tell them this much.
Not to feed into them, to stand up against them. So many things I swear I'll do for her. I'll never walk into her room without knocking.
I won't fake emotions in front of her. I'll tell her she's special just because she's who she is.
I won't act like I'm perfect. I won't scare her. I won't let her be scared of me. I won't tell her I know all the answers. I won't lie to her.
Alice I Have Been
The characters in this book felt real. The setting felt real. This book felt real. It might be a short and quick read and something you can chew in one sitting, but even that doesn't have me complaining.I guess there's really nothing else to say other than don't judge a book by it's cover or the he said she said about it.
I can't wait to see what she comes up with next! Her depression and frustration, moreover, is caused by societal repression of females.
Again, Benjaminian innervation is taken to its logical end, in which the real and fictive worlds are blurred. Writers, on the other hand, can no longer claim originality, for their work is inevitably produced in relation to previous texts. Rooted in the classical tradition and bridged to the plight of the modern Southerner, the novel successfully reveals several central issues plaguing Southern culture. The Truth About Alice is a simple novel.
