Truth by Julia Karr

Nina's life is turned upside down and much more complicated than in, XVI (Karr's debut novel).

Pops is accused of committing a crime, her grandmother is in the hospital and CPS wants to take Dee. Things are intense and Nina is fighting to keep her family together.

Truth is a transition book, between 1 and 3. It does not stand alone. Character development has grown and the story while interesting doesn't measure up to, XVI. The ending is a cliff hanger and will leave you craving more. I can't wait to see what happens to Nina in the next book.

Grade: B-




Overview: [B&N]
Nina Oberon's life has changed enormously in the last few months. When her mother was killed, Nina discovered the truth about her father, the leader of the Resistance. And now she sports the same Governing Council—ordered tattoo of XVI on her wrist that all sixteen-year-old girls have. The one that announces to the world that she is easy prey to predators. But Nina won't be anyone's stereotype. And when she joins an organization of girls working within the Resistance, she knows that they can put an end to one of the most terrifying secret programs the GC has ever conceived. Because the truth always comes out . . . and the consequences can be deadly.
