    One thought on “Der Tag, als wir begannen, die Wahrheit zu sagen”

    1. The I write, the I realize that when you tell a story, you shape the truth What you leave in, what you leave out, every word and every emphasis changes the meaning Writers create the truth, for better or worse This book really affected me I don t know that I have ever read a book that manages to be so lighthearted and humourous, and yet so increasingly horrific and infuriating as it moves along There are so many things to praise about this book that I don t know where to start Also, quite iron [...]

    2. 5 19 16 re read for my book club Still infuriating.Pretty close to 5 stars for me.It is super funny and yet it also made my blood boil with fury There is a character in this story that I haven t seen in YA before, and this character made me MAD Also, footnotes.

    3. Actual Rating 3.5 This review has also been posted on The Social PotatoReasons to read The Truth Commission 1 The Writing Style This book is written in a fun, witty style that will make it impossible to stop reading unless you just happen to have exams pop up like I did What makes this book so much fun to read is the fact that it s written as a non fiction novel, where the main character is telling her story to the readers I always enjoy reading a book structured like that because it helps forge [...]

    4. Well, shit.The very best books are those that you either love or hate The very best books are those that sneak up on your feelings and makes them fucking explode With love, with hate, with both.This book made me mad, really really mad And I also want everyone in the world and their mother to read it.I find it really weird that I can t say anything about this book s plot or ideas or themes Because the thing is that you must read them for yourself.Written in the way of creative non fiction this bo [...]

    5. 4.5 stars.This had strong resonances with two of this year s Book Battle books, made me think of another one a few times, and I bet if I had time and will I could come up with connections The two were The Vigilante Poets of Selwyn Academy and The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone It s not a major leap, with a somewhat unreliable narrator who s a teen in an art school, and with questions of how much integrity people will retain in the face of the lure of profit I really liked the voices of both E [...]

    6. I ADORED this HOLY CRAP Thought provoking, funny, distressing and cathartic but not in a bullshit way As my 13 year old, Josie who also loved it , pointed out, John Green should WISH he could write quirky yet real characters like this The conceit This is make believe narrative non fiction by an 11th grader at an art school, creating a writing project to go along with her elaborate embroideries in fabric and thread about her friends attempts to get people to tell the truth about things hence the [...]

    7. Told as narrative non fiction, Normandy Pale s story is about getting to the bottom of her famous graphic novelist sister s strange return home from college This is a funny at times out loud laughter and clever and yet deep and thoughtful look at relationships, about the intricacies of families, and about truth and creative truth telling Juby s book is about who gets to tell your story and how they get to spin it, as well as what the implications of those things may be A seriously DELIGHTFUL rea [...]

    8. I d rate this 4.5 stars.Will the truth really set you free In Susan Juby s quirky and enjoyable The Truth Commission, three art students believe so, and strive to compel their fellow students to expressing the truth about the various situations they re in but they don t realize that the truth comes at a price, and that facing your own truths may cause difficulty than you realize.Normandy Pale is a student at the Green Pastures Academy of Art and Applied Design in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Cana [...]

    9. I was surprised by how much I liked this book I went into it thinking it was some light entertainment, but don t be fooled by the sweet cover This story is clever and thoughtful and definitely not fluff I will definitely keep an eye on this author and recommend this book to fans of clever YA fiction Find reviews and bookish fun at princessandpen

    10. Well I guess I ll start by pointing out that Hallie really liked this, so The Truth Commission is obviously not without merit But.I did not find this book s exploration of truth to be believable or compelling Normandy, our narrator, is an initially reluctant participant in her friends new project, their Truth Commission The goal of this commission is, essentially, to approach classmates and ask them revealing questions in an attempt to uncover certain truths First, they ask questions to which th [...]

    11. Yup, I m weak I can t help myself Might as well go from a meme to another pop culture phenomenon cue Hamilton Let me tell you what I wish I d known When I was young and dreamed of glory You have no control Who Lives Who Dies Who tells your story Who indeed The Truth Commission was an engaging story about putting yourself back in the narrative Some spoilery caveats view spoiler The jump from general asshole ish behavior to straight up VILLAIN was a bit of a leap for me especially after the twist [...]

    12. I loved this one From the meta self ware post modern text, to the quirky art school characters and the riveting suspenseful plot the last 80 or so pages keep you glued to the page this is such a smart, funny, and emotional young adult novel Layered beneath the humor and the footnotes, are important themes for the curious and careful reader to fish out Read this now You will not be disappointed.

    13. Hm ok, also zun chst einmal habe ich etwas komplett anderes erwartet Die Beschreibung, dass der Trupp um Normandy einmal die Woche einen Mitsch ler nach der tiefsten Wahrheit fragt, hat mich dazu bewogen, dieses Buch berhaupt zu lesen.Leider war das nicht direkt der Fall Ja, es wurden Leute befragt, aber nur ganz am Anfang in der Hocheuphorie der Aktion ca 6 Personen Danach wurde nichts mehr gefragt, sondern vielmehr Selbstfindung betrieben und die Wahrheit um Normandy s Schwester enth llt.Das h [...]

    14. Worum geht es Die Freunde Normandy, Dusk und Neil wagen ein Experiment der besonderen Art und gr nden die Wahrheitskommission Die Idee dahinter Eine Person das fragen, was sich niemand auszusprechen traute, obwohl sich doch jeder daf r interessierte Wir kennen diesen modernen Gossip jeder hat schonmal ber jemanden geredet und gemutma t So wechseln sich die drei Freunde in ihren Befragungen ab, jede Woche muss ein anderer von ihnen jemanden ihrer Kunst Schule auf den Zahn f hlen Dabei treten sie [...]

    15. I have such mixed feelings on this book On the one hand, the story was interesting to keep me up all night finishing it, which is a commendable feat And the framing device is interesting, albeit flawed I think adults who enjoy YA lit would probably find this to be an interesting read But on the other hand, it teaches kids the target audience some terrible lessons Let s dive right into the negatives, shall we On the surface, this seems like a great book for teaching important life lessons It cove [...]

    16. Open secrets are the heart of gossip the things that no one is brave or clueless enough to ask That is, except for Normandy Pale and her friends Dusk and Neil They are juniors at Green Pastures Academy of Art and Applied Design, and they have no fear They are the Truth Commission But Normandy s passion for uncovering the truth is not entirely heartfelt The truth can be dangerous, especially when it involves her brilliant older sister, Keira, the creator of a bestselling graphic novel series, who [...]

    17. I have just read a very thoughtful, mind twisting novel written by Susan Juby, titled, The Truth Commission It is a adventurous mystery story uncovering secrets about everyone, mostly the protagonist s sister, Keira The main plot of the story was about Normandy Pale and her friends, Dusk and Neil, making The Truth Commission which is a group that uncovers secrets that people hold They uncover secrets like finding out if Brian Forbes takes drugs or which guy Prema Hardwick is going to pick as she [...]

    18. 4.5 starsThe Truth Commission was very thought provoking Normandy Norm is working on a nonfiction project hence this book for her crazy, artsy school She and her friends Neil and Dusk are on a mission a truth commission They seek out their fellow art students in an attempt to make them admit truths that they ve been hiding behind it s much complicated than that, but I gave it my best go.While Norm and her friends go around trying to spread truth, it s soon apparent that Normandy has some delusi [...]

    19. The Truth Commission is an odd little book It s rather quirky, from the characters to the writing style, but somehow it works 4 1 2 stars Normandy Pale is an average girl She s got nice friends and goes to a cool art school Then there s her sister, Keira, a famous graphic novelist That would be pretty cool, but Keira uses caricatures of her family in the story.Keira abruptly returns home from college, seemingly traumatized Simultaneously, Normandy s friends have started The Truth Commission, a m [...]

    20. I read Susan Juby s, The Truth Commission last year and just recently treated myself to the audiobook Great narration by Kate Rudd It was great to experience this novel again, and I enjoyed it just as much as I did the first go around It s the story of Normandy Pale, a seemingly grounded, easy going art school student, who, along with her friends, form The Truth Commssion an initiative committed to discovering truths and dispelling rumours in order to set people free It sounds good, right But as [...]

    21. Even though the characters were a hot mess, the plot and writing made this book much better than I thought it would be Keira was a megabitch Just an awful, selfish piece of shit I hated her so much.Normandy was a little too into footnotes and seemed kind of immature sometimes but she wasn t all that bad, I liked her.Neil was too much weird for me.Dusk was self obsessed and annoyed me, view spoiler especially when she accused Norm of bullying her because she wouldn t ask someone the truth or what [...]

    22. An amazingly compelling book for me Normandy s narrative voice is the pivot around which everything else works in the story There are so many fascinating elements to think about in this book like truth what is it and what is its importance and its impact, creativity and what the artist owes to his gift, how much should be sacrificed to artistic inspiration and who decides And then there are mundane things like family dynamics, friendship, and trust Juby manages all these big issues through the [...]

    23. I honestly really enjoyed this book Fiction written as if it was a work of non fiction Such a wonderfully original and refreshing book to read.

    24. Der Tag, als wir begannen, die Wahrheit zu sagen stand schon eine ganze Weile auf meiner Wunschliste, von daher war ich mehr als froh, dass ich das Buch bereits vor seinem Erscheinungstag lesen durfte Meine Erwartungen waren an das Buch relativ hoch, sodass ich schon sehr gespannt auf die Figuren war, doch leider muss ich am Ende sagen, dass ich doch ein wenig entt uscht bin Die Geschichte ist alles andere als schlecht und liest sich sogar richtig flott, allerdings hat mir bei dieser Geschichte [...]

    25. There are books you never want to end, and this is one of those These characters are so fresh and new and real that I wanted to spend even time with them This novel is about three teenage friends who attend a private art high school together There is Dusk, the stunningly beautiful girl who creates tiny tableaus for stuffed shrews There is Neil, a boy stuck in the 1970s and who paints portraits of beautiful women like Dusk And then there is the protagonist, Normandy, who does tiny needlepoint wo [...]

    26. There s so many good things I loved about this book and I m not sure if I can express it with justice in this review Spoiler this feels like a rant than a review The truth is so interesting This book says something about us wanting to hear the truth about us so we overshare online I believe that s true Another good point is that when we share the truth, every little detail, omission and emphasis changes how our truth is perceived by other people So true, again.I originally read this book becaus [...]

    27. Told as narrative non fiction, Normandy Pale s story is about getting to the bottom of her famous graphic novelist sister s strange return home from college This is a funny at times out loud laughter and clever, as well as deep and thoughtful, look at relationships, about the intricacies of families, and about truth and creative truth telling Normandy and her friends attend an art school and it s as wild as you d imagine an art school to be.Juby s book is about who gets to tell your story and ho [...]

    28. I really enjoyed reading this book it was an easy read with a clear theme and the plot was simple to follow Although the messages it gave the reader were thoughtful and provoking opening up a different aspect and shining light on what truth is And that in all honestly the truth is never simple, but the book did great at getting everything across to the reader that the truth is both good and bad, it provokes things, it is difficult to handle, sometimes the people you trust most will lie to you an [...]

    29. for hallie maybe 3.5 or 3.75, but i like it enough to round it up to 4 instead of 3 so done and i liked it all and can t say why or talk about it it felt good and also it felt that there were some things missing maybe, i just can t find why would love for you all to read it and read your reviews and maybe understand why i felt what

    30. I wasn t as fond of this book as I hoped The footnotes made for choppy reading, and until the end, I wasn t impressed with the narrator, Normandy Her parents were worthless, allowing her famous sister to call all the shots, even if it meant harm to their family.
