Six strangers with one universal thing in common: their lives aren’t always what they make them out to be.
What would happen if they told the truth instead?
Julian Jessop is tired of hiding the deep loneliness he feels. So he begins The Authenticity Project – a small green notebook containing the truth about his life.
Leaving the notebook on a table in his friendly neighbourhood café, Julian never expects Monica, the owner, to track him down after finding it. Or that she’ll be inspired to write down her own story.
Little do they realize that such small acts of honesty hold the power to impact all those who discover the notebook and change their lives completely.
Being published April 2020.
Thank you to Transworld Publishers and Random House UK for a digital review copy – my thoughts are my own.
After seeing great reviews for this book, I finally started reading my review copy last night. I read about half last night and then used our enforced staying at home time to finish the book this morning. I was desperate to find out what happened but also didn’t want the story to finish.
I loved the story telling in this book, the way the lives of the strangers become entwined as they each embark on their journeys of self discovery, how they face up to what happened in their pasts and how they move forward, all aided by The Authenticity Project book.
I would love to be able to go a visit Monica’s cafe, to sit with a hot chocolate in the Library area.
As other reviewers have commented, this would make a good film or TV series. One of my favourite books of 2020 – uplifting and enjoyable.
