"Waiting On" Wednesday (#12) To Be Perfectly Honest: A Novel Based on an Untrue Story by Sonya Sones


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm picking:
To Be Perfectly Honest: A Novel Based on an Untrue Story by
 Expected publication: August 27, 2013 by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

From Goodreads:
Can honesty lead to heartbreak if the truth is subjective? A compelling novel in verse from Sonya Sones.

Colette is a compulsive liar. She considers it storytelling, a fun way to make a boring life more interesting. Because when you’re stuck playing backseat to your beautiful movie star mother, and your promised vacation in France is exchanged for a middle-of-nowhere summer babysitting your little brother on location for your mom’s new movie, you’ve got to do what you can to liven things up.

Then Colette meets Connor. He’s gorgeous, funny, and totally into her. So what if she lied about her age and a few other pertinent details? Nobody’s really interested in the truth, are they? But when some of the details of Connor’s stories don’t add up, Colette begins to suspect that she’s not the only one skilled in the art of deceit. And as the dishonesty deepens, Colette will have to decide what kind of stories she really wants to tell about her life—and who she wants to tell them to.

Why I'm Waiting:
I have really enjoyed the author's other works, and I do love a good contemporary.  This one looks like a lot of fun.  


  1. I don't think I have heard of this one. It sounds pretty good :)


  2. This one sounds interesting. I'm not sure about telling 'in verse' though. I don't always do well with those.

  3. I don't tend to gravitate towards novels told in verse, but I do plan on reading this one. I haven't read anything by this author, so I'll have to check out some of her past books. Great pick!
