Book Description

Judith can't speak. Ever since the horrifying trauma that left her best friend dead and Judith without her tongue, she's been a pariah in her close-knit community of Roswell Station; even her own mother won't look her in the eye. All Judith can do is silently pour out her thoughts and feelings to the love of her life, the boy who's owned her heart as long as she can remember - even if he doesn't know it - her childhood friend, Lucas. But when Roswell Station is attacked by enemies, long-buried secrets come to light - the cruel become kind - and Judith's world starts to shift on its axis. Before she knows it, Judith is forced to choose: continue to live in silence, or recover her voice, even if what she has to say might change her world and the lives around her, forever.

About the Author

Julie Berry grew up as the youngest of seven children on a 50-acre farm in America complete with pigs, chickens, turkeys, rabbits, and oodles of cats and dogs. As a child she took beloved books to bed like other children took teddy bears, nestling down under the covers with them. She still does this today, and her patient husband stacks them on his bedside table before turning off the light. She has written four novels for children and lives with her husband and four sons in Massachusetts.

By lyra
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Written in the first person, Judith has had no voice since the day she returned from the dead, and her mother's joy quickly turned to disgust.

The book is written in a curious way with the reader having to unravel the backstory for themselves. Identified as a 14+ by the Carnegie Shortlist, the age limit is a good guideline as Judith's story is harrowing, echoing the position of many women today who have no voice. It is set in a specific religious and cultural setting but Berry makes the characters her focus, and despite the historical context they remain accessible.

Her only concession to this being a YA novel is the ending, which some may applaud and others may feel is a little too convenient. An intelligent, well written and emotional tale - highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mortal Moments 12 Sept. 2013
By Aiysha
Format:Hardcover
Wow!!! When I first read the blurb for this book I did not expect to read such an AMAZING book! It has blown me away and I was sad to end such a beautiful book!

All the Truth That's in Me is a story set around probably just under a century ago I think (if my little knowledge of history hasn't failed me!) Normally I'm into my contemporary stories but this story captivated me from beginning to end and i fell in love with it and mesmerised by it.

The story is told in 1st person in the point if view of Judith. A normal, average girl, Judith is one day snatched away from her happy life when her tongue is savagely cut so she loses the ability to speak. Two years after her disappearance she returns to a broken family as her father died soon after she disappeared. Now to make matters worse, the whole neighbourhood, including her mother believe that she is cursed and now start to ignore her existence and stay away from her as if she is diseased or something. She loses her name, her identity and is only spoken to when given orders so there is no need for her to answer. One thing keeps Judith going though in this horrible, worthless life of hers. Her love for Lucas the village boy who she has known since childhood is her only hope. His love is the only thing that can cure her. But the question is that would he be willing to choose her, the mute cursed girl over the beautiful maidens that are desperately wanting and waiting for his attention?

Judith, the protagonist is an average girl but a traumatic incident changes her life forever. However with the absence of her tongue her mind speaks very attentively and she doesn't miss a thing. Soon I started feeling sorry and protective for her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book everyone should read 23 Jan. 2014
Format:Hardcover
Wow. That is really all I need to say about this book.

As you can probably tell, I loved All the Truth That's In Me. Not least because I read it in one sitting.

This book is the story of Judith who, a few years ago, vanished with her best friend. Not long after, her friend's body is found, but it is only years later that Judith reappears, her tongue cut out.

But the mystery is not the main thrust of this story. It's an important element, but this book is more focussed on the fact that as a girl, Judith has her voice taken from her, literally, but also figuratively, by the people of her town. And it is not only Judith, but ALL women. Judith's struggle to regain her voice, prompted by a female friend, is what All the Truth That's In Me is REALLY about.

And I loved it.

But be warned, this book is dark and troubling. But it's also very thought-provoking and spectacularly written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never judge a book by its cover (or blurb) 15 April 2014
Format:Paperback
This is not a book I wanted to read. The cover didn't appeal, and there wasn't enough information on the blurb for me to make a decision. But when it was shortlisted for the 2014 Carnegie medal I thoguht I'd give it a go and I'm very glad I did. Set in an undetermind time in America , but probably the late 1600s into the early 1700s and in a Puritan or Quaker community. This is the story of Judith who was abducted by a man (later revealed), kept for a few years and then released with her tongue cut out, so she couldn't tell. The villages treat her as an outcast and her own mother doesn't want her to try and speak - so she doesn't, until the day a schoolfriend encourages her and that later proves to be her salvation. To tell any more would spoil the story.

This story is told in very short "chapters", arranged in 4 books. Why I'm not sure, and it's neither a help or a hindrance, but ti perhaps makes the book read faster? It's not necessary. Very moving and I'm glad to say, not an entirely predictable ending. Well worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for 13-Adult! 19 July 2014
By Mr. Ed VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
As a shortlisted title for the 2014 Carnegie-Medal, the quality of the writing and story-telling on offer here are beyond question.

Julie Berry has created a sensitive masterpiece, and as an adult reader, I found the book hard to put down, and finished it in a few hours. This is perfect for teens, as it is not challenging in scope or design, and offers a fantastic window to the world of more adult fiction.

There are grand themes at work here, which are finely balanced, and never patronising. Equality, the mistreatment of the weak and disabled, the judgment of those who are in a minority, and uneducated sentiment are put in stark focus.

The story itself is warming, harrowing, and completely gripping from start to finish. I would highly recommend this for mature young adults from the age of 13 to adult.
