Reseña del editor
Madelyn Hawkins is super smart. At sixteen, she's so gifted that she can attend college through a special programme at her high school. On her first day, she meets Bennet. He's cute, funny, and kind. He understands Madelyn and what she's endured - and missed out on-in order to excel academically and please her parents. Now, for the first time in her life, she's falling in love. There's only one problem. Bennet is Madelyn's college professor, and he thinks she's eighteen-because she hasn't told him the truth. The story of their forbidden romance is told in letters that Madelyn writes to Bennet - both a heart-searing ode to their ill-fated love and an apology.Ver Descripción del producto

It wasn't your normal happen ending, but it was what needed to happen. It was the best possible outcome you could hope for in a situation like that.
Madelyn is attending college classes even though she is only sixteen. This is how she meets Bennett Cartwright, who seems perfect, except for the fact he is her Biology professor. Maddie builds their relationship on lies, lies about her age. Of course, the truth comes out eventually. Unknowing his fate, Maddie begins writing a letter to him, to them, hoping it will help clear his name.
The way this was written absolutely mesmerized me, Maddie is writing a letter to Bennett but it never felt like just a letter. It still felt like their story, just way more personalized and in a way you can almost imagine yourself being there with Maddie through all her experiences. It just made the story all the more real and I definitely found myself smiling. However, the writing style is definitely not for everyone, as it is akin to second person.
Surprisingly, this was written in such a way that doesn't make Bennett seem like a creepy older guy taking advantage of a (unbeknown to him) younger girl, which could have been really easy to do. It really was fate, and a little scheming on Maddie's part, that brought them together.
Many readers will appreciate the ending of this one. It is bittersweet, although it was sad, it is the most realistic ending one could hope for and I am very happy with it.
If you are a fan of forbidden love stories and cute contemporary novels, I recommend this.
For one, the way The Truth About You and Me is written is just really cool. It's written as letters from Madelyn to Bennett after their relationship has been ended and discovered. You know that disaster is coming, and the letters betray that foreboding tone, but you just want to see how, why. It's also all Madelyn's voice, so she's up front about why she did things. It didn't make me like her any better, because she's so willingly doing what she knows she shouldn't, what could get Bennett in trouble, but it's still helpful to see what she says.
And that's the thing. I think the format is supposed to make you sympathize with Madelyn, see why she does what she does. But it really doesn't. If anything, it made me dislike her more. Without being so in her head, I might not have known how aware she was that what she was doing was wrong and how she knew she needed to tell Bennett she's sixteen, but I did. Every time she mentioned either thing it was just like a slap in the face, saying, "The things I want are more important than the welfare of anyone else." She loves Bennett, yet she does so much to hurt him, knowing how it will affect him. That certainly sounds like love to me, right? Smart girls may do stupid things at times, but most have enough sense not to ruin the lives of others.
So while I see some interesting things going on in the book, I just can't get past Madelyn. I not only didn't like her, but I couldn't even see her point of view. I know love seems like the biggest thing in the world at that age, but it doesn't mean you destroy lives--especially so willingly.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
