Haniya Yess! The first question that came to my mind was " is this related to teen wolf?"

The titles on sale are all Moment of Truth both in the US and in the UK. This book was originally supposed to be published by EgmontUSA as The Sun, the Moon, and the Truth several years ago but the publisher dissolved and now the title is being published by HarperCollins. Egmont already has isbns for the book before they couldn't publish it, so several of the editions listed here (all that say Egmont) never actually came out.(less)

Anybody else getting some serious Teen Wolf vibes from that title...

May 06, 2015 marked it as must-read  ·  review of another edition
Getting a Teen Wolf vibe. I'm sure it's nothing to do with Teen Wolf but still, written by Kasie West? I'm definitely reading this!!!

Another cute and fluffy Kasie West book! I really enjoyed this one and its perfect for springtime! ...more
(view spoiler) Aside from the romance as a whole as such, I think the novel was really neat, though. The family and friendship dynamics were A+, and the Heath Hall mystery was actually super fun.

I wasn't that impressed with either the story or the characters. I was initially intrigued by who the mysterious Heath Hall was and that's basically what kept me listening to the audiobook. The rest of the story felt a bit superficial and predictable.

Just because you cant see the future, doesnt mean it doesnt exist. You dont have to see everything clearly or know exactly where youre going to move forward.

Moment in Time is the third book in a series of stand alone novels, each following different set of characters, but some may make comebacks. You can read any of the three books without having read any of the others.

I definitely liked this one more than Love, Life, and the List (had my least favourite romance of KW), but my favorite from

Of course I HAVE to read this. It's Kasie! She's one of my auto buy authors.

As much as I love Kasie West, I think I really have to admit how hit or miss she is for me. And this one was a miss.

This book follows Hadley, a 16 year old swimmer thats hyper-fixated on being the best swimmer she can be. She doesnt eat sugar, doesnt do anything but practice swimming, and needs an entire superstitious ritual in order to get in the zone for races. Shes preparing for one when a person wearing a mask of Heath Hall (an in-universe movie character) jumps into the pool in her lane

There's a Kasie West book coming out in three days?? And nobody told me? You all should be ashamed of yourself.

Mini Review Moment of Truth: I finished this book really fast, theres no doubt Kasie West knows how to keep her readers intrigued but I had a difficult time really connecting with the main character. I think I wanted more of a romance story. It turned out to be a book about personal growth, mental health, and family. I still thought the book was sweet, but it wasnt my absolute favorite of hers. Im still waiting for another Fill in boyfriend or Ps I Like You type boom from her.

3.5 ⭐⭐⭐💫


HOLY CRAP is this the same book that's been titled "the sun, the moon, and the truth" that had no cover, no synopsis, no expected publication date for YEARS??? kasie, girl, THANK YOU

Ive heard lots of good things about Kasie West, who seems to be widely considered a fresh and funny voice in YA contemporary. I went into this with high hopes.

Naturally, I was disappointed. This book was, on the whole, bland and peopled with forgettable characters.

Sixteen-year-old Hadley Moore is obsessed with swimming. Day (and sometimes night) shes at the pool, practising. Partially this is because she uses it as a form of validation; her older brother Ethan died before she was born, and she

I've learned to only start a Kasie West book when I have the time to sit down and read it from start to finish, because I won't want to put it down. This book was no different. As always with her books, I felt like I was in the world with these characters. They were incredibly three-dimensional, and I really enjoyed being in Hadley's head. I felt like I understood her. Her relationship with Amelia was a highlight, as was the side of her brought out by Jackson. I loved the mystery within the ...more

It makes me a little sad to say this, but I found this book really dull. I didn't really start to enjoy it until about the last 25%. I expect a slow burn romance in West's books, but it felt almost non-existent until close to the end. I also thought the big drama between Hadley and her parents was resolved WAY too easily. I almost gave this book 2 stars instead of 3, but I did really like Hadley and Jackson in the last few chapters.

No I actually hate it. This is by far the worst Kasie West book I've ever read. She's had some that have disappointed me but nothing to this level, for real.

Moment of Truth is about a swimmer named Hadley. Swimming is her life so when a prankster in a mask ruins one of her meets, she wants to track down who he is. There are a lot of people he could be, including her ex and her best friend's crush. In searching for the Heath Hall imposter, Hadley learns more about herself and how she might resent

That was so much fun, Miss Kasie always manages to write these cute fluffy stories that makes you want to cuddle up and get immersed in her peaceful words and not get up until the very last page, she is the only author that I always finish her books in one sittings
so the story is about Hadley who is a swimmer and very dedicated to her goals but one day she faces the mysterious Heath Hall who is a masked figure who appears in random events that makes Hadley pissed off, who is he ? why is Hadley

Kasie West will always, and forever, be my top go-to author for fun, romantic and heartwarming YA contemporary. She always delivers and I love how she writes like no other.

Moment of Truth is definitely one of my best 2020 reads! To the to be read again pile this goes! Cannot wait for another West book to devour!

You cant go wrong with a Katie West book. This one was just as adorable as her others. I loved the whole concept of a mask and facing fears with it. Our main character Hadley is tried of living in the shadow of her dead brother. People see her as somewhat stuck up and never noticing anyone but herself and always about swimming and nothing else. That isnt the case, what she really wasnt a is to be noticed by her parents. How do you compete with someone whos dead. Whos anniversaries and benefits ...more
