"Shades of Truth" by Naomi Kinsman

About this book:

  “It’s Going to Be a Bear of a Year Sadie thought she’d have a perfect fresh start when she moved to Owl Creek, Michigan, but finding her place in her new school proves harder than she expected. In this divided town, Sadie’s father’s job mediating between bear hunters and researchers doesn’t help her social life. Sadie’s art instructor encourages her to explore her beliefs and express herself through her sketchbook, and things improve after Sadie befriends a kind girl from school and a researcher’s son―but she can’t stop worrying about the bears. As everything swirls around her, Sadie must learn what it means to have faith when you don’t have all the answers.”

“Shades of Truth” seemed realistic to me, a pretty unique story line and was pretty clean…just not my cup of tea per say. ;)

See y’all on Friday with a new review!
