Courtney Stevens' Secret-Sharing App Reveal

Courtney Stevens' Secret-Sharing App Reveal

Today we're excited to reveal a new app from author Courtney Stevens (FAKING NORMAL, THE LIES ABOUT TRUTH)!  The "BiG Truths" app flips the idea of "confession" from a negative to a positive: instead of "confession" as revealing shame or mistakes, the app turns confession into a positive experience by allowing users to confess things they're proud of, their dreams and goals. It's completely private--no one will ever read the messages. It's a cathartic way to finally voice your goals and truths, no matter how "insignificant" they may seem.

Got a secret? Tell BIG using the BiG Truths app!

Advance praise for THE LIES ABOUT TRUTH:
This realistic YA novel explores the weight of the past, the value of the truth, and the meaning and process of forgiveness, which teen readers will identify with. The narrative is told with a mix of flashbacks and past emails that bring perspective and a much needed history of the characters, giving them depth and authenticity.”

— School Library Journal

“As she did in her beloved debut, Faking Normal, Courtney Stevens does a spectacular job of chronicling a smart seventeen-year-old girl’s discovery of her own inner resources to overcome the aftermath of a tragic car accident involving her five best friends. First she must forgive her friends, then she must forgive herself. No one writes better about resilience and ‘channeling your brave’ than Stevens does.

— Cammie McGovern, author of Say What You Will

THE LIES ABOUT

TRUTH By Courtney Stevens

From Courtney Stevens, author of Faking Normal, comes The Lies About Truth (on-sale: 11/3/2015; $17.99; 9780062245410; Ages 14 up)her sophomore novel, which School Library Journal called “a great addition to any YA collection.”

Sadie Kingston is living in the aftermath. A year after surviving a car accident that killed her friend Trent and left her body and face scarred, she can’t seem to move forward. She’s distanced herself from everyone, including her ex-boyfriend, Gray, and her best friend, Gina. The only person who seems to understand her is Trent’s brother, Max.

As Sadie begins to fall for Max, she’s unsure if she is truly

healed enough to be with him. But Max looks at her scars and doesn’t shy away. And Max knows about the list she writes in the sand at the beach every

night, the list of things that Sadie knows she must accomplish before she can move on from the accident. And while he can help her with number six (kiss someone without flinching), she knows she’s on her own with number three (forgive Gina and Gray), and the rest of the seemingly impossible tasks that must be made possible before she can live in the now again.
