In this video, Xanthe reviews the (awesomely excellent) YA book, 'Jenna's Truth', by Nadia L King.
(Excerpt) "I thought Jenna’s Truth was a sad, brutally honest book. It ended happily, in the actual story itself, but then when I found out the truth of what really happened, it made me feel very sad. I actually did cry at the end of the book."
