Review: Half Truths by Claire Contreras

Get ready to read well into the night with this page-turner! Half Truths is fast-paced and eerie … a perfect fall read! Full of secret societies, and with mysteries around every corner, this story had me on the edge of my seat and my heart pumping. I absolutely loved it.

And Contreras has a magical way with words. She is one of my favorite writers, even though  Ijust found her work recently. There is something about her dialogue and timing that just flows in such a way that it draws me in; it’s captivating.

You’ll fall in love with Amelia, Logan, and the whole Half Truths crew. You’ve been summoned! 🙂

Book Description:

You’ve heard of these groups – the secretive ones that only the crème de la crème are invited into, the ones outsiders speculate about for centuries – I’m the second in my family invited to attend, but to them, I’m fresh meat. New blood. New money, too.
They think they’ll elbow past me, that I’m here for their amusement, for them to walk all over, they’ll find out soon enough that I’m not.

I may look like one of them, with my designer bags and clothes straight from the Parisian runways, but I’m not. I’m here for answers, to take revenge for blood spilled on their centuries-old Persian rugs.
I transferred here in search for answers about what happened to my older brother, who hightailed out of here, and my friend who seemingly disappeared into thin air. I certainly wasn’t here for the attention of the star hockey player, regardless of how much he willed my eyes his way. I wasn’t here for his scrutiny or his judgment or to read into his mysterious aura. I was here for the society, because only they held the answers I needed. That was, until I found out that in order to get those answers, I needed to go through him. He’s saying if I want in, I have to play by their rules, follow their lead.
It’s a game I’m willing to play.

I may be the second person I know of to be invited into their society, but I’ll be the first to make it out intact
