Silas Hart has seriously shaken up Westlin Beck's small-town life. Brand new to town, Silas is different than the guys in Green Lake. He's curious, poetic, philosophical, maddening-- and really, really cute. But Silas has a sister-- and she has a secret. And West has a boyfriend. And life in Green Lake is about to change forever.

Truest is a stunning, addictive debut. Romantic, fun, tender, and satisfying, it asks as many questions as it answers.

***Praise For Truest***

“Truest is one of those books that will destroy you in the best way possible. Truest is more than a book: it’s a window, a conversation.”Ashley Brooks, Brooks Editorial

“If love and pain are two sides of the same coin, Truest is the mint.”Sam, Goodreads

***Favorite Quotes***

“What?” He deadpanned. “What are you staring at?”

“Your windbreaker is just so…”

“Fetching?” he interjected. “Voguish? Swanky?”

“Hot,” I said, playing along. “The nineties neon just exudes sex appeal.”


“That,” he whispered, “is how you should be kissed.”

    Truest is totally one of my all-time favourite books, it just feels so true and real, that I can actually imagine the whole scenes in my head when I read Truest. It’s a mixture between the feelings of pain and love, and it is very impressive. Good work!!! And I also loved the ones that you wrote, where Silas tells his side of the story and describes how he feels. Anyways loveeee it, please keep writing more!!!
