The Truth According to Us by Annie Barrows

This is a good book. I was grabbed right from the beginning. It reminded me both of the tv show Gilmore Girls and Fannie Flagg books. As the book progressed I got less of a Gilmore Girls vibe, but the Fannie Flagg one stuck. While I haven’t read a Fannie Flagg book in several years, I do enjoy her books. So, that’s a compliment. The only real downside to the book is that it was about 100 pages too long. I thought the book was still good and the story still strong, but it dragged a little in the second half. The Truth According to Us is by the same author who co-wrote The Guernsey Potato Peel Pie Society. I recommend both books and if Annie Barrows writes more adult fiction (she also writes a children’s series), then I’ll be sure to check it out.
