I was a bit hesitant to read this book at first - I am not the best at making decisions. But I was interested in reading something where there were so many different ways that the story could go and end up and it was all up to the reader. Overall, I enjoyed this book but I felt as though there were some turns that were disappointing or didn't make sense. For instance, there is one chapter where you decide if the main character joins soccer, the debate team, or tries out for the play. I chose for ...more

Remember the time when you used to horde those Goosebumps Choose Your Own Adventure books? Well, this one's a Choose-Your-Destiny book. TM.

This is the last book in the What If... series of choose-your-own-destinies by Liz Ruckdeschel and Sara James, and stars a girl named Haley. After a year in Hillsdale High, she thinks she has finally conquered her new school, now a Junior, she is in a rush to fill her college application with interesting activities, like her other classmates. But along with t

It's been a while since I've read one of these "choose your own destiny" books but I enjoy them. I just like how you choose the characters path, how you can make or break them. I did get her to end up with the romantic interest I wanted (not the one I started out with, but not complaining cause option b was better), although it was odd cause like two chapters before I had her making out with some other guy, whoops. We're jut gonna pretend that didn't happen.

What If... All the Rumors Were True was just the other novels, great!

Rumors and gossip. Every teenager in Hillsdale, New Jersey has to find out who's with who, or who did what with who. Haley is one of them. But, what if one of those rumors were about her?

What can I say, choosing Haley's life story, next exciting thing for her to do is fun! I adore Reese, the smart, popular guy, and always try to make Haley do something with him. I find myself sticking away from the nerds and art geeks,

This was a cute little book, nothing more and nothing less.

Nothing was really that fleshed out given the nature of the book, I think that a few of the scenarios would have made pretty good standalone novels actually!

This book is quite possibly the most terrible book I have read in a long time. The characters, including the main one, have no depth whatsoever and every conflict introduced was never resolved. I only read it because it's meant to be "Choose your own adventure" and I used to love the Goosebumps choose your own adventures, but this just had no redeeming qualities. It's hard to believe that this trash even got published.

It was pretty good. I liked the chose your own destiny. Not everything seemed realistic. Some parts also didn't match up with what was going on.

I've read the first three books of this and after I read the path I was on, I read through every other path in the book. I haven't done that with this one yet though…

I am glad that Haley finally found someone to like her back without her having to change. No more Reese who is on/off. But I am uncertain about my liking to the other storyline this book takes. I have read it 3 times to get different results and ended up only liking one. Some chapters supposdly connect with eacother but then have absolutly nothing in common. Reminded me too much of the first book.

It was okay, but I really only read the part of the story that was really safe choices. I did not enjoy reading through it, and I was just bored at a library. You get to choose your own story, but this one is not as good as some of the others I have read.

The book, "What if... All the Rumors Were True" was not the best book I have read because the topic of this book is Rumors and even though I like that topic... I didn't find that interesting, all though I did manage to finish it. :)

Awful book.

Half of the chapters have absolutely nothing to do with what you were reading before. New characters that were never introduced.

It makes no sense, and was a bland,confusing read.

I really like these books(: The writing kind of jumps from one thing to another really quickly but it kind of has to. All in all I like the idea of a choose your own destiny book.

It's fun because I read it twice with two totally different endings! :D
