Speak meets The Scarlet Letter in this literary masterpiece, the recipient of five starred reviews and nominated for the 2014 Edgar Award

"All the Truth That’s In Me is that rare magical thing—a beautiful love story told in spare, riveting prose.”—The New York Journal of Books
“The love story and the mystery . . . are mesmerizing. Berry’s language undulates and flows. . . . Worthy of multiple reads.”—The Boston Globe

The paperback edition includes an exclusive interview with the author and a list of discussion questions for book clubs!

Four years ago, Judith and her best friend disappeared from their small town of Roswell Station. Two years ago, only Judith returned, permanently mutilated, reviled and ignored by those who were once her friends and family.

Unable to speak, Judith lives like a ghost in her own home, silently pouring out her thoughts to the boy who's owned her heart as long as she can remember--even if he doesn't know it--her childhood friend, Lucas.

But when Roswell Station is attacked, long-buried secrets come to light, and Judith is forced to choose: continue to live in silence, or recover her voice, even if it means changing her world, and the lives around her, forever.

Customer Reviews of All The Truth That's In Me


Rated 5 out of 5 by from pulled me right in...... I found it a slow start, and once I ignored the roman numerals it flowed nicely (the numerals threw me off a little bit at the beginning). by the second book (the whole book is cut in three books) I couldn't put it down and I finished two books in one day. when I put the book away fro class I felt like I was in a different world and needed to be brought back, the book pulled me in and I think I am stuck in that world for the time being

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Creepy This book was not what I was expecting. Even now, I don't really know how I feel about it. From the narration, which was all written to one character who was refferred to as "you" whenever he appears, to the extremely character-driven plot, it was all a bit different. But really, really good different. Even now, I get the feeling that the longer I sit and think about this book, the more there will be to think about. It just felt so...I dunno, real. Everyone made so many mistakes. Everyone did different things with them. I can't describe it. So I guess what I'm trying to say is, I really liked it, and if you're not sure, go read it. It's worth it.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for All the Truth That's in Me“effectively combines elements of traditional genre literature to create a distinctive novel that includes a powerful message about the value of women’s voices and what is lost when they are silenced.” —New York Times Book Review"Twines lyrical writing with the sharp pull of suspense to tell a riveting tale of a young girl's struggle to reclaim her life."—Judy Blundell, author of What I Saw and How I Lied“Powerful.”—Rita Williams-Garcia, author of One Crazy Summer “While it is deeply poetic, the story reads like a thriller.”—Tim Wynne-Jones, author of Blink & Caution"Every now and then, a novel comes along with such an original voice that readers slow down to savor the poetic prose. This is such a story." —Kirkus, starred review"...suspenseful and haunting. [Julie's] poetic narrative will draw readers in, and the gradual unveiling of secrets will keep them absorbed."  —Publishers Weekly, starred review"Lyrical language, a good mystery, and a compelling heroine–this is a page-turner with substance." —School Library Journal, starred review"heart-wrenching and...heart-pounding" —BCCB, starred review"Berry keeps her readers on edge, tantalizing us with pieces of the puzzle right up until the gripping conclusion." —Horn Book, starred review
