Cross, Julie Chasing Truth, 400 pgs. Entangled Teen, 2016. $9.99 Content: Language: R (100+ swears; 44 “F”); Mature Content: PG-13; Violence: PG-13.
Ellie doesn’t believe that her best friend Simon committed suicide. As she digs deeper into what she believes is a mystery, she often crosses paths with her new neighbor and hottie, Miles Beckett. Ellie has to use her skills as a former con-artist to get to the truth, but she also has a hard time deciding who she can trust and who is lying.
This is an entertaining mystery with likable characters. The ending is satisfying as far as her best friend’s story, but it says on the front that this is from the Eleanor Ames Series, so I’m assuming there is going to be more of an ending for Ellie’s story. The content makes it really hard to recommend for a school library, the mature content borders on rated R.
