The Truth About You & Me

"Madelyn Hawkins is super smart. At sixteen, she's so gifted that she can attend college through a special program at her high school. On her first day, she meets Bennet. He's cute, funny, and kind. He understands Madelyn and what she's endured - and missed out on - in order to excel academically and please her parents. Now, for the first time in her life, she's falling in love.There's only one problem. Bennet is Madelyn's college professor, and he thinks she's eighteen - because she hasn't told him the truth.The story of their forbidden romance is told in letters that Madelyn writes to Bennet - both a heart-searing ode to their ill-fated love and an apology."

As I began reading The Truth About You & Me, I was impressed by how beautifully written the story was and how Grace/Hubbard could take a taboo subject and give it a realistic twist. Reading Madelyn's letters to Bennett is very moving and even though you can see where the story is heading, you desperately want it to end well. Amanda Grace gives readers a beautiful story, with a satisfying twist and ending, that will give you the closure you need, all while being realistic. The Truth About You & Me is a very quick read, worth reading on a summer afternoon at the park or on a rainy day snuggled by the fire.
