The Truth About Leaving

By Natalie Blitt

Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.

Lucy’s carefully choreographed plan for senior year skips a beat when Dov, the new Israeli transfer student, shows her a love story she had never imagined, starting with a single poem.

Lucy begins to realize that sometimes, you have to open yourself up to chance. Even if the right person at the wrong time is a boy whose bravery you admire but whose hopes for the future make you question your own.

The Truth About Leaving is an alternative map to the future and a heartening reminder to take love and life day by day.
