Nothing But the Truth by Avi

Nothing But the Truth by Avi

Nothing But the Truth is set up as if it is a book documentary telling a true story entirely through transcripts of conversations and excerpts of diary entries, news articles, memos, and speeches. It very effectively demonstrates that there are multiple sides to every story and shows how errors show up as that story is passed around, even something as simple as a news reporter’s mistake that a student is in tenth grade instead of ninth. It’s a quick read at less than 200 pages. It’s a bit dated simply because it was written over three decades ago, though the lessons are still completely applicable today. I recommend this book to middle schoolers and up.
