Cover Reveal: The Honest Truth by Dan Gemeinhart

About a year ago, when my brother and I first started working for Scholastic, one of the most exciting things we started doing was working on submissions. We read vigorously to find a diamond in the rough through hundreds on manuscripts sent to the editors we were working for. Along came Dan Gemeinhart's book and nothing was the same after that.

I am so proud of this book, not only because it is the first book that we helped acquire for Scholastic but also because I have never read a more hopeful, heartbreaking middle grade novel as I have since reading this for the first time. And that's the honest truth.

I know that this book is going to soar, not only for the words within in, but for the amazing author behind it and the amazing cover adorning it. Check out the cover below and follow the link to the Fearless Fifteeners blog to hear the story behind Dan and his journey to The Honest Truth.
