True North is a fantastic, journal-like work of realistic fiction. The story of four teens and their families making their way through the ups and downs of life, coming to terms with past mistakes, and struggling with both a truth and a choice that could save the life of a young girl.

For her first book Heather Krill wrote on a fascinating topic that not

I always enjoy reading first books by an author and also books by local authors. This book covers both bases. It is a YA book and I thought it was very well written. The topic is certainly relevant for this day and age and is very thought provoking. I encourage my friends to read this book to give deserving support to this NH author.

First novel by this author...well written...engaging. Enjoyed this young adult book in spite of being a senior citizen. Plan to purchase a copy for my teen-aged granddaughters. Book openly discusses life issues.

I read this in one sitting! Although it was a very short book, it was a satisfying story whose concepts will be echoing into my consciousness frequently. I'm too tired to articulate much about the greatness of this book, but regardless, it was great!

Hit me right in the feels. Very emotional. DO NOT READ without a box of tissues on hand. Excellently written.

I liked the book, but it has some serious topics which made me think. It was not an easy read for me and i felt a rock on my shoulders reading it, but I could not put it down either.
