I really enjoyed reading Grains of Truth by Elizabeth Ferry-Perata. The story is about friendship and always being there for each other. It is also about accepting things that you cannot change in life. This is one book that I will not soon forget. Grains of Truth has caused me to lose sleep. It has been a while since I have found a book I did not want to put down. I loved the characters in the book. Sarah and Zoe seemed so real. Ferry-Perata is one of the few authors that does not make her characters too perfect. Zoe may have been beautiful, but she had the mouth of a sailor. Sarah reminded me of myself in the way she thought. Tom was a good guy, but he had no backbone. I kept hoping his father would get what he deserved, but it never happened. Much like life, karma has a way of missing her target.

The plot of this book was a good one. Although I figured out what was happening before the end, I still had trouble not crying at the end. What Ferry-Perata said about depression being “a mountain of pain” hit really close to my heart. So many people suffer from depression, but not many people understand it. Overall, I really liked this book. I am really glad I got the chance to read it. Not many books unnerve me with their words, but this one did. I look forward to reading more of Ferry-Perata’s books in the future.
