Dakota McCloud has just been accepted into a prestigious art school. Soon she'll leave behind the artists' colony where she grew up―hippie dad, tofu since birth, yurt―and join her boyfriend and best friend on the East Coast. It was the plan…until Dakota finds out her boyfriend and best friend hooked up behind her back.
Hurt and viciously betrayed, Dakota pours out her heart on a piece of paper, places it in a bottle, and hurls it into the ocean. But it doesn't quite go where she expects…
Jack Sauvage finds the bottle washed up on the shore and responds to Dakota's letter. Except what if his straight-laced life doesn’t jive with the free-spirited girl he’s only seen from afar? As Jack creates a persona he believes she’ll love, they slowly fall for each other with each new letter. Now Jack is trying to find a way to make this delicate, on-paper romance happen in real life…without revealing his deception.
Dakota is the definition of free spirit. I fell in love with her character! How tough must it be to find out your best friend and boyfriend have betrayed you? YIKES! Jack, on the other hand, I felt bad for. His mom is way too paranoid, which affects him in more ways than one. He is the complete opposite of free.
Jody Gehrman's writing was so, so good! The Truth About Jack is told in both Jack and Dakota's perspectives. What Gehrman accomplished was giving them each a unique voice. You could tell which character was narrating without even looking.
If you need a unique twist on a contemporary romance, please pick up The Truth About Jack. It's filled with a great plot and characters that you will love as much as I did! I mean, who throws bottles with notes in the ocean? AND, gets a response from a handsome stranger? I still can't get over how adorable that scenario is!
