When author of critical darling Silver Girl (and favorite of many here at ASP) and local literary hero, Leslie Pietrzyk, asks Joanna Biggar to share something about her book she wants readers to know Joanna answers:
"The narrator, J.J., in the first book dedicated herself to finding out the truth about her friends. In Melanie’s Song, she continues on the quest for truth using the tools of a journalist. But she discovers that “the facts” never tell the whole story, that the truth is ever-changing, and only by accepting that can she—can anyone—really grow."
