Overview

A breathtaking debut brings us the unforgettable story of a small-town love, big dreams, and family drama.

Silas Hart has seriously shaken up Westlin Beck's small-town life. Brand-new to town, Silas is different from the guys in Green Lake. He's curious, poetic, philosophical, maddening--and really, really cute. But Silas has a sister--and she has a secret. And West has a boyfriend. And life in Green Lake is about to change forever.

Truest is a stunning, addictive debut. Romantic, fun, tender, and satisfying, it asks as many questions as it answers. Perfect for fans of The Fault in Our Stars and Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn't Have).

Sommers debuts with a summer romance that gives questions of faith a complex, satisfying treatment. Seventeen-year-old West Beck is a pastor’s daughter in small-town Minnesota, and she has been dating the school football star for years. Then the beautiful Hart twins, Silas and Laurel, enter West’s life. Suddenly, she is pulled into a flirtatious relationship with Silas and a friendship with Laurel, who has a rare psychological condition, solipsism syndrome, which causes her to doubt reality entirely. As the romantic connection between West and Silas becomes clearer to them both, they puzzle through their relationships with God, the meaning of life, and the complicated role West’s father plays as a town pastor who is rarely there for his own family. For these two thoughtful teens, faith isn’t an obstacle for their explorations of love (and sex), and although the events of the last third of this novel verge on overdramatic, in contrast to the deep philosophical conversations and carefully constructed relationships that precede them, Sommers’s prose and her instincts for character shine. Ages 13–up. Agent: Steven Chudney, Chudney Agency. (Sept.)
