The Book of One Hundred Truths by Julie Schumacher
As Thea is heading off for her annual trip to her Grandparent's home for the summer, her mother slips her a journal and asks her to record one hundred truths while she is away. While this is an unusual request, it is even more difficult for Thea who in the past 6 months has started lying about anything and everything. Being asked to record these truths prove to be very challenging for Thea who has a secret so large that she needs to lie about everything just to keep that one secret.
At her Grandparent's home, Thea is expected to look after her seven year old cousin Jocelyn. While Thea tries to keep her secret from her family, Jocelyn is convinced that the adults in the family are also keeping secrets. Thea soon learns that everyone has secrets, but at some point the truth must come out.
