True to Form

A Novel

See More Retailers

An act of betrayal leaves a teenaged girl in 1961 wondering if the only person she can ever truly trust is herself in the finale of the “rich…timeless” (The New Yorker) Katie Nash series.

Thirteen-year-old Katie Nash is not looking forward to her summer. Her father has enlisted her in two difficult jobs—babysitting the rambunctious Wexler children and looking after her elderly, bedridden neighbor.

Luckily, she does have something to look forward to: a trip to her Texas hometown to visit her best friend Cherylanne. But people and places change, and Katie is devastated to realize Cherylanne is no exception.

A summer of upheaval for both a young girl and the country at large, True to Form is a relatable and evocative “journey of self-discovery and personal redemption” (The Seattle Times).
