  Nothing But the Truth by Avi

Review by: Janessa G.
West Virginia, Grade 10

There is a kid named Philip that goes to Harrison school, he really likes track and he wants to try out for it at his school, but then something gets in his way and changes him forever.

The reason I liked the book is because I thought it was weird how Philip gets in trouble for singing the National Anthem, a part I like about the book is that it was well wrote and had some thought put into it. I like that Philip was one of the kids who would stick up for himself and for what is right. Although, the ending was interesting and was kind of a cliffhanger, I really liked the book.

Overall, the book was good, I didn't like how Ms. Narwin started being rude to Philip over something he didn't decide to do, he didn't decide to get a whole story out there to get people to hate on Ms. Narwin. The cliffhanger really left me wondering what happened next so I didn't really like that. But if you need a book to read, then this would be a great book.
