Get a two-week head-start on The Honest Truth -- in paperback!

The Honest Truth is a moving, fast-paced adventure about a boy, his dog, and the adventure of a lifetime.

In all the ways that matter, Mark is a normal kid, with a best friend and a dog named Beau. He likes to take photos and dreams of climbing a mountain one day. In one important way, Mark is not like other kids at all. Mark is sick. The kind of sick that means hospitals. The kind of sick some people never get better from. So Mark runs away. He leaves home with his camera, his notebook, his dog, and a plan. A plan to reach the top of Mount Rainier. Even if it’s the last thing he ever does.

The Honest Truth is a rare and extraordinary novel about big questions, small moments, and one incredible journey.

LOCAL AUTHOR Dan Gemeinhart loves being a teacher-librarian in an elementary school, where he gets to share awesome books with awesome kids. He loves his wife and daughters, camping, cooking, and playing the guitar badly, and he is thankful to be pretty darn happy. Dan says: “I wrote for ten years before finally getting my first book published, but it was totally worth all the work and all the waiting. I don’t believe in giving up and don’t think that you should, either.”

The Honest Truth will be available at this signing two weeks before it's normal street date -- sweet!
