Product Details



“I absolutely loved The Truth Commission. Every page made me laugh aloud, while all the time the tears were creeping up on me. The characters are so real that I wouldn’t be surprised if they knocked on my door right now. I hope they do, I want to spend more time with them.” – Jaclyn Moriarty, author of The Year of Secret Assignments and A Corner of White

“Susan Juby is a marvel. Wise, witty, and full of heart, her writing draws you in and won’t let go. And just when you think it can’t get any better, it does.” – Meg Cabot

* “With a deft hand and an open mind, Juby presents many layers of truth. This is a sharp-edged portrait of a dysfunctional family with some thought-provoking ideas about what is real.” –Publishers Weekly, starred review

* “A surprising, witty, and compulsive read.” –School Library Journal, starred review
* “Hilarious, deliciously provocative and slyly thought-provoking.” – Kirkus Reviews, starred review
