All the Truth That's in Me by Julie Berry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Judith and her best friend Lottie disappear from their homes in Roswell Station. Four years later, Lottie is dead and Judith returns under mysterious circumstances...without her tongue. She is forced to remain silent in spite of the accusing glances until her town is attacked and past secrets come to light. What really happened to Judith and Lottie? Will the truth that is in Judith be revealed?
I really liked this book. It is a little bit of mystery, a little romance, and a lot historical fiction. There is enough edge here to keep you reading, but nothing that is over the top or inappropriate. A great addition to my middle school library (with a YA sticker because of thematic content).
