All of This Is True: A Novel, by Lygia Day Peñaflor


In this genre-defying page-turner from Lygia Day Peñaflor, four teens befriend their favorite YA novelist, only to find their deepest, darkest secrets in the pages of her next book—with devastating consequences.




Miri Tan loved the book Undertow like it was a living being. So when she and her friends went to a book signing to hear the author, Fatima Ro, they concocted a plan to get close to her.
Soleil Johnston wanted to be a writer herself one day. When she and her friends started hanging out with her favorite author, Fatima Ro, she couldn’t believe their luck—especially when Jonah Nicholls started hanging out with them, too.
Penny Panzarella was more than the materialist party girl everyone at the Graham School thought she was—and she was willing to share all her secrets with Fatima Ro to prove it.
Jonah Nicholls had more to hide than any of them. And now that Fatima’s next book is out in the world, he’s the one who is paying the price...




“Utterly addictive and psychologically delectable—Peñaflor’s second novel will shock at every twist and turn.”  (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“This twisty exploration of contemporary teen culture is as original as it is disturbing.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review))

“Deliciously sordid yet thought-provoking, this will be eaten up by teens. A must-have for YA collections.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

“Seamlessly moving among narrative devices, Peñaflor keeps the tensions high and the pacing swift while giving each of the three young narrators a unique voice and perspective. She addresses the extremes of fan fervor and raises intriguing questions about authorial responsibility in this suspenseful and smart novel.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Flat-out addictive, devious, delicious, and gasp-worthy, All of This Is True is your next binge-read. Underneath a mesmerizing plot, Peñaflor weaves a satisfying tale of class, revenge, privilege, and lies.” (Kathleen Glasgow, New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces)

“Sharp, edgy, and intensely electric, All of This Is True is a study in obsession and art, betrayal and forgiveness, and the web of connections they spin. This book is not afraid to shock its readers.” (Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of Firsts and Last Girl Lied To)

“Peñaflor has created a delicious, addictive puzzle that readers will gobble up. I had to read it twice, once because it had me by the throat, then again to really savor the wit, sarcasm, and absolute humanity of these characters. An unbelievably creative undertaking, beautifully
executed.” (Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock, ALA William C. Morris Award finalist author of The Smell of Other People’s Houses)
