Summary (from Goodreads):
In this humorous love story from the author of Two-Way Street, an unlikely romance is the best sort of surprise—but the wrong secret can ruin everything.

Kelsey’s not going to let one mistake ruin her life. Sure, she got kicked out of prep school and all her old friends are shutting her out. But Kelsey’s focused on her future, and she’s determined to get back on track at Concordia High.

Isaac’s been kicked out of more schools than he can count. Since his father’s a state senator, Isaac’s life is under constant scrutiny—but Concordia High’s his last stop before boarding school, so Isaac’s hoping to fly under the radar and try to stay put for a change.

When Kelsey and Isaac meet, it’s anything but love at first sight. She thinks he’s an entitled brat, and he thinks she’s a stuck-up snob. So it surprises them both when they start to fall for each other. Kelsey’s happy for the first time in months, and Isaac’s never felt this way about anyone before...But nothing’s ever completely perfect. Everyone has secrets, and Isaac and Kelsey are no exceptions. These two may have fallen hard, but there’s one thing that can ruin it all: the truth.

Whenever my sister and I learn that Lauren Barnholdt has a new novel coming out, we always get ridiculously excited and giddy with the news! Both of us still consider Two-Way Street one of our all-time favourite novels and it totally sparked our love for road-trip books. (And no matter how many times I re-read it, I can still never get enough because I just love that book SO much.)

Barnholdt's other YA novels have always been just as enjoyable to read, so it goes without saying that I've been really looking forward to reading The Thing About The Truth for awhile now! I'm always a fan of contemporary romance novels, so I sure can't wait to see how Kelsey and Isaac will meet and fall for each other. I'm also really curious to see what kind of secrets the pair are hiding from each other too...

  2. I would love to read this one too! I will say though, that her facial expression on the cover is a little creepy. I don't know why it bothers me lol.
