Prepare to be sucked into a world of privilege, obsession and manipulation. All of This is True is an addictive mix of funny and horrifying * Sue Wallman, author of Lying About Last Summer *
Flat-out addictive, devious, delicious, and gasp-worthy, All of This Is True is your next binge-read * Kathleen Glasgow, author of Girl in Pieces *
Sharp, edgy, and intensely electric, All of This Is True is a study in obsession and art, betrayal and forgiveness, and the web of connections they spin. This book is not afraid to shock * Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of Firsts and Last Girl Lied To *
Utterly addictive and psychologically delectable - Penaflor's second novel will shock at every twist and turn * Kirkus, starred review *
Penaflor keeps the tensions high and the pacing swift while giving each of the three young narrators a unique voice and perspective ... Suspenseful and smart * Publishers Weekly *
A tightly wound and plausible cautionary tale ... The unusual construct is highly effective and has the same addictive quality as sensational tabloids but with thoughtful themes and content * Booklist *
As original as it is disturbing ... Readers will be compelled to interrogate their own stances on important contemporary questions * The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review *
Even with its addictive, soap opera-esque intrigue, Penaflor's characters remain distinct and believable. Deliciously sordid yet thought-provoking ... A must-have for YA collections * School Library Journal *
