The Truth About Alice

Then one of the boys, a star football player named Brandon, dies in a car accident. Alice must somehow be to blame. This is a truly fascinating book because although we hear the story of Alice in 4 voices, not a single 1 of those voices belong to Alice herself. There is Elaine, queen bee and mean girl extraordinaire who starts it all, in part because she is still mad about something that happened in 8th grade. And there is Kurt, a shy genius who reaches out to Alice when no one else will.

Mathieu's book, released Tuesday, delves into the heads of five high school students to address the very real, very present concerns of bullying and slutshaming, and it does not hold back. Alice Franklin might not have been the most popular girl in school — that title was reserved for her friend Elaine O'Dea — but she wasn't a social outcast by any means. That was before the two incidents. As Elaine says at the beginning of the novel, there are two absolute truths about Alice: She slept with two people the same night at a party in Elaine's house, and one of those guys, Brandon Fitzsimmons, died in a car accident that was Alice's fault. Of course, as is the case with high school rumors, these aren't actually the absolute truths. But that doesn't really matter, does it? Alice is bullied relentlessly, and she becomes a pariah in the school and even throughout the community.
