Praise

* “Fitzpatrick (My Life Next Door) once again evokes the dizzying heights of adolescent passion while remaining down-to-earth.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Girls looking for a Sarah Dessen-esque romance that is a cut above the usual . . . will be delighted with Fitzpatrick’s fast-paced What I Thought Was True.”–VOYA

“A steamy and very believable account of how it feels to discover how important it is to take responsibility for oneself and the decisions that shape one’s life. A must for collections that can’t keep Sarah Dessen, Stephanie Perkins, or YA summer romance titles on the shelves.”–Booklist

“Much deeper than the pretty cover lets on.”–Kirkus Reviews

“A beautiful story of first love.”–School Library Journalvarious
