About the Book

Reminiscent of THE CRUCIBLE and THE SCARLET LETTER, this startlingly brilliant book draws you into the claustrophic world that Judith occupies, where those in a small community are quick to judge - and usually wrongly.
Four years ago, Judith and her best friend disappeared from their small town of Roswell Station. two years later, only Judith returned, permanently mutilated, reviled and ignored by her friends and family.Unable to speak, Judith lives like a ghost in her own home, silently pouring out her thoughts to her childhood friend, Lucas. He is the boy who has owned her heart for as long as she can remember - even if he doesn't know it.But when Roswell Station is attacked, long-buried secrets come to light, and Judith is forced to choose - to continue living in silence, or recover her voice, even if it means changing her world, and the lives around her, forever.told in a voice that is achingly raw and intimate, this remarkably original novel will haunt and stay with you. It will fill you with Judith's passion and longing, and its mysteries will keep you feverishly turning the pages until the very last one.Ages: 12+'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. A tale of uncommon elegance, power and originality.'KIRKUS StARRED REVIEW

The in-house response to ALL THE TRUTH THAT'S IN ME:I started reading All the Truth That’s in Me at my desk and was instantly drawn in by the powerful voice of the protagonist. I can clearly see this title having enormous traction, with teenagers as well as with adult book groups, who will be eager to discuss the range of ideas that this literary gem canvases. We would be extremely excited to publish this amazing book on our list.SHONA MARTYN| PUBLISHING DIRECTORWith a writing style that’s so unique, Julie Berry immediately draws you in to Judith’s mysterious world and starts to reveal, piece-by-piece, a complex but compelling tale of one girl’s extraordinary experience and emotions.All the Truth That’s In Me is truly haunting and I’m sure will be a book that a range of audiences (from teens to adults) will be captivated by. The entire HarperCollins Children’s Books team is extremely passionate about it and we would be honoured to publish it in the ANZ market.CRISTINA CAPPELLUTO | HEAD OF CHILDREN’S PUBLISHINGEvery now and then you are fortunate enough to read a book that stops you in your tracks. A book that is so fresh, so different, and so beautifully written it reaffirms why you love working in publishing. Julie Berry’s All the Truth in Me is astounding. From the very first line it is apparent that we are in the hands of a truly accomplished storyteller whose use of voice is lyrical, poetic and hauntingly exquisite. All the Truth That’s In Me has the potential to be a publishing phenomenon. A game-changer that alters the way we view books for young adults. LISA BERRYMAN | ASSOCIATE PUBLISHER - CHILDREN AND YOUNG ADULT I absolutely loved this book and you were so right in saying it stays with you. I keep on thinking about the misfortunes of this era and the family...I loved the story in the second person it felt so intimate.English teachers would love to get their hands on this book! I’d love to see us acquire this amazing story.JACQUI BARTON | EDUCATION MANAGERThe dark, well-paced storyline, coupled with the insightful and deeply personal voice of Judith, made All The Truth That’s In Me a compelling tale, that not only kept me reading but promised with each turn of the page another hint of the tragedy that befell her.TIM MILLER | MARKETING & PROMOTIONS EXECUTIVE - CHILDREN’SI just dipped in to have a taste, and had to physically stop myself after 20 pages as otherwise, I would have gone on all afternoon til I finished. THIS IS SO GOOD. The voice just grabs you immediately by the neck and you’re right there, in her world, in her head, in her heart. 20 pages in, and I’m absolutely hooked. Brilliant stuff. CATHERINE MILNE | ASSOCIATE PUBLISHER - NON-FICTIONI read the whole thing last night on my phone. (I meant to just open it on my iPad when I got home but once I started on the train, I didn’t want to lose my place.) The writing was very visual and cinematic. It reminded me a little of the film The Piano - not just because the protagonists are both mostly silent, but also because of how powerfully and simply the story is told. It feels like an important book that could go on to do great things. AMANDA DIAZ | FICTION & CHILDREN'S PUBLISHING COORDINATOR All the Truth That’s in Me is masterful. I don’t think I’ve ever read a manuscript that was so engrossing on that many levels. The plot twists and turns, the ideas, the claustrophobic historical setting and above all the longing that drenches the text is so pervasive and bittersweet and delicious and horrid and exquisite, that it feels as though it seeps into your bones and stays with you.
