Truth, a Geneva Project novel, is about an orphaned girl who lives on an island that was once devastated by the Flood.  Due to the Flood, many children have lost their families, so they are put in a place called the Troian Center that is run by a greedy, selfish headmistress.  All the orphaned children in this center are given simple names: girls are named Jane #__ while boys are named John #__.  The heroine of the novel is named Jane #65, the youngest member of the Troian Center.  After a meeting with a special someone and an unsual incident, Jane #65's once dull life starts to change in many thrilling, new ways.  She discovers that she has supernatural powers that allow her to do things she never thought would become her reality.  This begins Jane #65's journey towards unlocking not only her own hazy past but also the island's buried secrets.

Opinion: 

Honestly, I didn't enjoy reading this book that much.  Although the idea for this novel was very interesting, the approch that Christina M. Benjamin just didn't speak to me.  The relationships seemed a bit forced, and the magic aspect of the novel didn't work well with the plot.  It was as if this element was shoved into the story at the last minute.  It just didn't flow smoothly with the rest of the novel.  The characters were pleasant, but they didn't catch my eye as much as I hoped they would.  In my opinion, many events that happen in the novel were very abrupt and didn't flow together with the other events that occurred before and after it.  It was just  a bit choppy.  On the other hand, the writing style was very nice and easy to read.  It made this entire experience much nicer than I expected it to be.  I had really high hopes for this novel, but it fell a little flat.
