Praise for 16 THINGS I THOUGHT WERE TRUE

A Twitter-obsessed teen gets some real friends in this appealing story about family and friendship . . . Well done, sensitive and real." Kirkus

"[A] romantic road-trip story . . . [with a] theme that one's expectations rarely match up with life's realities. " Publishers Weekly

"Peppering her prose with tweets and texts, Gurtler contrasts the quick appeal of casual online friendships with the lasting satisfaction of giving the same attention to real relationships...Morgan's emotional journey is nonetheless an honest one." Booklist

"This is a timely, relevant, and touching story for the so-called digital natives. Highly Recommended." ―Library Media Connection

Heart attacks happen to other people #thingsIthoughtweretrue

When Morgan’s mom gets sick, it’s hard not to panic. Without her mother, she would have no one—until she finds out the dad who walked out on her as a baby isn’t as far away as she thought…

Adam is a stuck-up, uptight jerk #thingsIthoughtweretrue

Now that they have a summer job together, Morgan’s getting to know the real Adam, and he’s actually pretty sweet…in a nerdy-hot kind of way. He even offers to go with her to find her dad. Road trip, anyone?

5000 Twitter followers are all the friends I need #thingsIthoughtweretrue

With Adam in the back seat, a hyper chatterbox named Amy behind the wheel, and plenty of Cheetos to fuel their trip, Morgan feels ready for anything. She’s not expecting a flat tire, a missed ferry, a fake girlfriend…and that these two people she barely knew before the summer started will become the people she can’t imagine living without.
