's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: young-adult, australian-authors

The serious problems of cyber bullying in Australia and elsewhere makes the issues examined in Jenna's Truth both real and relevant. After a powerful prologue the author paints Jenna's world in quick strokes. I found Jenna to be both authentic and relatable and just like any other teen who longs to be in the cool group. The line illustrations and quotes scattered throughout show her confusion and self doubt.

"My heart hammered in my chest. A part of me told me to walk away... go back to being an outcast and a loser."

This is a story sure to be very relatable to teens. The straightforward narration style reminded me of Risk by Fleur Ferris and the peer group brought to mind the toxic one in Puberty Blues.

Recommended for teens, parents and teachers.
