  • Nothing but the Truth


    Nothing But the Truth is a young adult novel comprised of diary entries, memos, letters, and pieces of dialogue that tells the story of Philip Malloy, a high-schooler who tells his parents that his teacher, Miss Narwin, forbade him from singing the National Anthem after he gets suspended for acting up in class. Although this is a lie, or at least an exaggeration of the truth, Philip is soon caught up in a media frenzy defending his rights. The narrative is an exploration of the nature and subjectivity of truth.
