The Honest Truth

(1 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

Publisher: Chicken House

Mark has cancer. He can't bear more doctors, so he runs away with his dog Beau for company. His personal mission: to climb Mount Rainier as he'd promised his grandfather, even if it's the toughest journey ever. Surviving mugging, half-drowning and facing a monumental storm, he refuses to admit defeat. Help arrives from unexpected sources and Beau's beside him, but odds are against him…

Mark's best friend, Jess, is also desperate: police are searching, Mark's parents are frantic, but Jess has worked out where Mark's heading. Should she tell them his secret?

Beautifully plotted, as gripping as any thriller, Mark's voice - angry, despairing, stubbornly courageous - alternates with Jess's dilemma in this powerfully moving novel about real friendship - when time is literally running out.
