With action galore and a carefully plotted premise, this adventure  tale about a boy who is tired of all the fawning over he gets because of his leukemia, will have you turning the pages so fast, you just want to know how this great story ends.  Friendship, family, & the true nature of a dog's love for his master this is a masterful debut.  

— Maureen Palacios

Description


The debut of a phenomenal new middle-grade talent.



In all the ways that matter, Mark is a normal kid. He's got a dog named Beau and a best friend, Jessie. He likes to take photos and write haiku poems in his notebook. He dreams of climbing a mountain one day.



But in one important way, Mark is not like other kids at all. Mark is sick. The kind of sick that means hospitals. And treatments. The kind of sick some people never get better from.



So Mark runs away. He leaves home with his camera, his notebook, his dog, and a plan to reach the top of Mount Rainier--even if it's the last thing he ever does.



The Honest Truth is a rare and extraordinary novel about big questions, small moments, and the incredible journey of the human spirit.

What a fantastic fantasy read! Author Emiko Jean makes full use of Japanese words & mystical elements of the yokai, to craft a feudal-like world of historical Emperor-led Japan, all the while with a kick-ass young woman with powers beyond mortal humans. Her Hunger Games-like quest of survival of the fittest in the bewitched Season Rooms brings together love, trust and loyalty themes. A real page turner, this young adult fantasy is sure to be hit. - Maureen
