The Truth About Truman School by Dori Helestad Butler
Reviewed by Liela
The Truth About Truman School is a marvelous book. It is about a girl named Zebby and her need for the truth to be told about the school, which she attends. She knows the school newspaper doesn't have all the facts about the school and starts a website, with her friend Amr, talking about the school so anyone can post anything they would like to. Then it gets a little out of control when the website turns against a classmate. The main characters are Zebby, Amr, Lily, Hayley, Brianna, and Trevor. Will Zebby and Amr put a stop to this madness or will they play along?
One thing I liked about the book was that it showed what the outcome of cyberbullying is and how it hurts people. The story had some cliffhangers and was so suspenseful at times you couldn't stop reading. On the other hand, at other times, you couldn't wait until the book was finished. People that have gone through, or have had a friend go through, cyberbullying would definitely like this book and so will people that just want a nice book to read.
The Truth About Truman School isn't the only book Butler has written. She is the author of many books including Do You Know the Monkey Man, Sliding into Home, and girls will like Tank Talbott's Guide to Girls. Hope you read the book. You'll never regret it.
