This is a book that needs to be read and talk about. I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion. Mischa does an excellent job telling us the story of Seelie she is a young woman that in the first chapter of this book is brutally attacked and needs to defend herself not only is she a survivor but a fighter who needs to still deal with people treating her horribly and this aside from her healing process not just physical but also mentally. We get to meet her support group her faction as they referred to themselves I love this characters and cant help but to say go girl to Cara who is her lawyer. To all the Seelies out there you are a survivor you are a warrior you deserve the best!

I received a netgalley of My Whole Truth by Mischa Thrace, in exchange for an honest review. Seelie Stanton is Seventeen-year-old and never wanted to kill anyone. When she was attacked by a former high school basketball star, she has no choice but to defend herself. The once quiet student now has to defend herself but finds it hard to relive the night. My heart feels for Seelie and found myself rooting for her while she faced adversity. I found it to be an enjoyable read.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley (thank you!) in exchange for an honest review. I started this book with the expectation of having a bit of an ominous vibe from the narrator, but I was so wrong. Sure, I did feel that vibe to some extent but I was so much more please with the loving, warm feeling that this book radiated. How can a mystery book be warm? Well, let me tell you. This book does not focus on investigations about the crime, but shows all its effects on the life of 17-year-old Seelie. I love her, how she stays strong despite of what she had to go through. She is far from perfect but her character development was amazing. Another thing that I loved was Seelie’s group of friends. They were always there for her, the rock that she holds on to. But they weren’t perfect as well and that’s precisely what made me love them more. Along the way, their friendships were tested by problems and secrets. Nevertheless, their friendships prevailed and made them even stronger. What I disliked in this book though was Seelie’s mother. Could you even call her a mother? She shows no sympathy for her own daughter. She even referred to Seelie’s situation as “legal drama” and cared more for her restaurant than for her daughter. What irked me the most is that they never patched things up. Seelie’s mother never tried to fix things with her daughter, and she’s the adult between them. Ugh! But whatever lacked in familial support, Seelie’s friends made up for. Overall, this book is a great read. I became emotional at some parts because Seelie’s story just feels really raw and strong. And also, I love how the author mentioned different TV series, all of which were either my favorites or those I’ve really enjoyed.

I enjoy reading a really good YA book every now and then and this book did not disappoint. Cecelia "Seelie" Stanton was attacked in the hayloft of the barn where she was taking care of the horses. Seelie ended up killing Shane Mayfield, a known drug user and a bully. Seelie received serious injuries during the attack and was subsequently arrested and charged with murder. Seeley and her 3 friends who refer to themselves as "The Faction" and are a very strange bunch of characters. All of the characters with the exception of Cara, Seeley's lawyer, are very unlikable. Even with all the unlikable characters, this was a fast-paced easy read and I really enjoyed. At the end of the book, I still did not like any of the characters except for Cara.

My Whole Truth is a YA/Teen book that covers some dark subjects. Told first person from the view of 17 year old Seelie, the book starts with her calling 911 after being attacked by, and subsequently killing, a 20 year old former classmate. Without doubt, a great suspenseful beginning but that's where the novelty of this story ended for me. The main character is grossly undeveloped as is the story in general. Seelie has a turbulent relationship with her mother, which is a recurring theme in this story, however the author offers no explanation for it. Alot of the book is implausible and felt rushed. I was provided an ARC of this book by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Just OK Seelie seems to be a normal teenager when the unthinkable happens: she is attacked by the older brother of classmate, and in self defense, she kills him. Her mom seems out of touch with reality and seems to really only care about her restaurant, which only makes matters worse. Seelie has a tight-knit group of friends, who she counts on daily, in her mom's absence. She has feeling for one (female), and a surprising truth comes to light about the lone male (Finn) of their group. Overall, I enjoyed this story. Thank you to Flux/NetGalley/and the author for the ARC in exchange of an honest review.
