    After a horrific car accident claims the life of her twin sister

    After a horrific car accident claims the life of her twin sister, Tally Landon has to begin a life without her other half. Being 17 years old and on a fast track of becoming one of the greatest ballet dancers, this is a wrench in her life she never though possible. One night however, changed everything when she hooked up with an up-and-coming baseball star that seems to not just get under her skin but thaw her frozen soul and let her feel for the first time This Much Is True follows Tally on her journey through life with all the ups and downs that comes with it, but will it lead her to the arms of Lincoln Presley?

    I loved that this book was a complete novel. No cliffhangers to deal with and 6 or 7 books to come in the future keeping you waiting around for years, it's all right here. That is so refreshing to see in a literary world with everyone wants to stretch a story out to create more books. To its' credit, This Much Is True is also paced remarkably well for a book that goes through about 10 years worth of material and almost nothing is left out. The two main characters were awesome, from the always self-deprecating Tally to the seemingly perfect, good guy Linc, it is clear that they are meant for each other from the second they meet, even if they make stupid decisions. Those twists and turns in relationships are what made this story stand out to me because it is a narrative that makes you want to throttle someone at points but then kiss them both at others. Along with these intricate main characters, you have a whole slew of supporting characters that make this book flow with ease and keep our main characters grounded.

    My only real problem with This Much Is True is simply that it repeats itself too much. For example, I get that Nika is a tall beautiful Russian, I didn't need to hear about 12 times throughout the story. This happens with more than just character descriptions too which bothered me. It didn't dampen the story but it made me feel like I was a little kid that needed to be told things over and over. Again, touching and amazing story it just put a damper on the ease of reading for me. I thought overall that it had a solid story line grown from grief and loss to be saved by love, and that was truly an accomplishment.
