All The Truth That’s In Me by Julie Berry (Review)


“I don’t believe in miracles, but if the need is great, a girl might make her own miracle.”

This is just going to be a little ramble.

After being kidnapped, Judith comes back to her home, but she comes back different. She comes back without a tongue, and she is treated like a monster, even by those closest to her. Judith is soon forced to make a choice – stay silent or speak up.

The writing in All the Truth That’s In Me is very different to what I normally read, as it is in second person narrative, but it actually worked really well. It wasn’t long before I was dragged into the mystery of what happened to Judith and her best friend. I was shocked by the plot twist.

I liked the characters in it, they were all unique and I managed to care for most of them. Judith was a really good character. Despite what happened to her, she went on her life as normal. She worked and she cared for her family, despite being shunned by her mum. I adored her brother, I really did like their relationship and how he cared for Judith. I thought it was a little creepy how she followed Lucas around. But I did like the romance. It was a sub-plot to the story, and I liked how Judith’s character development and her learning to speak was at the forefront.

Overall, a great book with lovely writing that I do suggest you pick up.

MY RATING: ★★★★☆
