This Much Is True by Katherine Owen

Fate brings them together
Fame & lies keep them apart
One truth remains…

She’s become the Paly High girl with the most tragic story…

At 17, Tally Landon just wants to graduate and leave for New York to pursue ballet. Her best friend Marla convinces her to attend one last party—a college party—where she can be among strangers and evade the whisperings about her heartbreaking loss of her twin that follows her everywhere she goes. She meets Lincoln Presley, Stanford’s famous baseball wonder and has a little fun at his expense—when she lies about her age and who she really is—intent on being someone else for the night and escaping her tragic story.

His only focus is baseball, but he can’t forget the girl he saved on Valentine’s Day…

At 22, Lincoln Presley’s star is on the rise—about to finish at Stanford and expected to be taken early in Major League Baseball’s upcoming draft—his cousin’s party serves as a welcome distraction. But then, he sees the girl from Valentine’s Day that he saved from that horrific car accident and can’t quite hide his disappointment when she appears to look right through him and not remember him at all. He vows to learn her name at least before he leaves. What’s the harm in getting to know this girl? What’s the worst that can happen?

They share this incredible connection, but fate soon tests these star-crossed lovers in all kinds of ways…

And yet, despite the lies being told to protect the other, and the trappings of fame that continually separate them, and in lieu of the deception by those they’ve come to trust the most; one truth remains.

This much is true.

Dear Katherine Owen,

I need to tell you what your story has done to me. It has RUINED ME… DEVASTATED ME, KILLED ME, MURDERED ME, MADE ME INSANE WITH GRIEF, MADE ME WITHER IN PAIN, MADE ME NUMB NUMB NUMB

Thank you for 1 of the best reads I HAVE EVER READ! SERIOUSLY!

I don’t know how you did it without crying and crying and hurting and hurting! How did you do it? How did you handle creating that much ANGST for 96% of a book??? Please tell me!

I need a grief counsellor and an insane asylum. I need a stiff 10 drinks and I don’t drink! AT ALL! But you you made me want to be a raving alcoholic. RAVING! My GR updates have SCARED many and I am sorry for that! But I think after they read this review they will take a chance BECAUSE in the END you gave me the sweetest most amazing feeling DEEP DEEP IN MY HEART!

You have a new #1 fan Katherine, you really do.

Thank you, thank you so much for making me grieve with Tally and Linc. The universe is CRAZY! And people will always deny you your happiness for their own selfish needs. You PROVED THIS WITH EVERY SINGLE WORD YOU WROTE. 

Thank you for proving that there is light at the end of tunnel, that happy ever afters do exist and that LOVE! LOVE FUCKING CONQUERS ALL!!!! 

So Katherine, I bow to you and your words. YOU ARE SUPERIOR

Your newest truest fan,

Mare~BFA Supreme
