About the Book
Open secrets are the heart of gossip—the obvious things that no one is brave or tactless enough to ask. Except for Normandy Pale and her friends Dusk and Neil. They are juniors at a high school for artists, and have no fear when it comes to asking their classmates for the truth behind the gossip. They are the Truth Commission. But when one of their truth targets tells Normandy, “If you want to know about the truth, you might want to look a little closer to home,” she realizes that there are some truths she might not want to uncover.
This dryly funny, knife-sharp novel, written as “narrative nonfiction” by Normandy herself, features footnotes, illustrations and a combination mystery/love story that will capture readers from the first page. Susan is currently at work on her next YA novel, set in the same art school as THE TRUTH COMMISSION.
