A freak accident left Starla Emerson with a deformed hand, low self-esteem, and a need to fade into the background. However, she finds it impossible to be invisible at her new high school where she is pushed front and center by a behind the scenes internet bully.
She joins forces with newfound friends to launch a counter attack in order to expose the cyber bully, aka grizzlygirl2015. Part of the plan involves the school’s bad boy Chase McFall. Star feels more for this golden eyed boy than she should as the plan progresses.
The plan backfires and lands Star in a mountain of trouble. Will she have the courage to be honest about her part in the plan and her true feelings for Chase? Or will she be left heartbroken? Once the truth is out…there’s no turning back.

To Be Honest by T.C. Booth, is an inspirational story to me. I like that it is a Teen/Young Adult, Clean story. Something that can be hard to find. I loved that it focused on Starla, and the fact that she looks different because of an accident. High school can be hard enough without looking different. I loved that she has a strong family and she is a smart girl. The fact that her parents have to the move family when she is 17 years old to a new high school away from her friends, is hard, takes courage and Starla managed to meet new friends.
I am also impressed how the cyber-bulling came up and how that was dealt with. I did love the other characters in the book. How they all wanted to help Starla. There is so much good in this story, and also showing the diversity and the sameness of others. I laughed and cried while reading this story, It is a great story to read.
I did receive this book in an exchange for and honest review.
