12 days in rehab for Pop.12 days in a temporary foster home for me.We’d already done it three times before, but this fourth time was going to be the last.I had made sure of it. That’s the honest truth.When she arrives at her newest foster home, Jane’s determined to stick to the straight and narrow and get back to her beloved dad as soon as she can. But as the days go by, she realizes that family is more than who you’re related to—and that a home can be found in the unlikeliest of places.Mostly the Honest Truth sparkles with a fully realized supporting cast, a safe and supportive setting, and a heroine who will call to mind characters like Gilly Hopkins and Perry T. Cook. Debut author Jody J. Little’s pitch-perfect writing imbues the story with love and hope, and marks her as a writer to watch.
