All of This Is True by Lygia Day Peñaflor

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I picked up this book at random one day just to occupy myself for a few minutes. But within a few pages, I was HOOKED!
“All of This is True” is one of those books people either love or hate but no one actually tells you what it is about.
A group of teens befriend their favourite (adult) author, Fatima Ro. They consider her an icon. But it isn’t clear why Fatima is hanging out with a bunch of teens…until it is.
An accident between one of the teens is attributed to Fatima Ro. Miri Tan, obsessed with Fatima, maintains that Fatima had nothing to do with it.
Meanwhile the group of friends is torn apart and not speaking to each other. “All of This is True” tells each friend’s part of the story.
The “big secret” was actually pretty predictable but I loved this story nonetheless. Fatima is charismatic and it’s hard not to believe everything she says.
I didn’t like the last 3 pages so I’m with-holding a star in retribution. Besides that, LOVED this book. This was the book that got me reading again.
