This Is My Truth - Yasmin Rahman

Your friend or your secret - which one will you keep? A powerful book tackling two important subjects, domestic violence and living in foster care, particularly in the Muslim community, by the author of ALL THE THINGS WE NEVER SAID, nominated for the Carnegie Medal, and YA runner-up in the inaugural Diverse Book Awards 2020. Best friends Amani and Huda are getting nervous about their GCSEs - and their future beyond school, which they're both wildly unprepared for. Shy, quiet Amani has an outwardly picture-perfect family - a father who is a successful TV presenter, a loving mother, and an adorable younger brother - while confident and impulsive Huda has grown up with over-affectionate foster parents who are now expecting a baby of their own. Both girls are jealous of each other's seemingly easy life, without realising the darkness or worries that lie underneath. Then Huda witnesses Amani's father hitting her mother, and Amani's biggest secret is suddenly out. As Amani convinces Huda to keep quiet by helping her with her own problems, a prank blog starts up at school, revealing students' secrets one by one. Will this anonymous blogger get hold of Amani's secret too? Will Huda keep quiet?
