The truth about Alice

By: Jennifer Mathieu
Location: FIC MAT
Genre: Teenage Life


Girl on Girl Hate... It is vicious. I remember at school being a victim to girls nastiness, happened twice. Once when I was 13 and smarmy fashionable Sharon had a tongue that could slice and kill, she was "popular" and  I was in her firing line. I was the youngest of four, from not so wealthy parents and my clothes were second hand- second hand clothes are a death sentence and in the hands of a cutting mouth upstart- you become the victim. It was no fun - love to met her now and have a wee chat!
The other story is worse, my folks shifted- relief from Sharon at last, but in my new school they stuck me in the dumb class- new girl on the block who is smart in a dumb class- I became the focus of a team bully campaign- black eye and all.
What was said about me and done to me was cruel- I often wonder how there lives have padded out!!

This book

There are a lot of rumours about Alice Franklin, and it's stopped mattering whether any of them are true. It all started at a party, when Alice was supposedly with two guys in one night.Soon everyone at Healy High has picked a side in this game of he said/she said. Do they believe Brandon Fitzsimmons, the most popular guy at school and the football hero of Healy? Or do they believe Alice, the girl who wears too-tight T-shirts and was caught kissing Brandon in a closet a couple years before?

When Brandon dies in a car crash, there are serious allegations that his death was Alice's fault. As the rumour mill spins into overdrive, Alice's small town becomes suffocating. And when the truth becomes a matter of opinion, something's got to give

“There is one thing I've learned about people: they don't get that mean and nasty overnight. It's not human nature. But if you give people enough time, eventually they'll do the most heartbreaking stuff in the world.”
