Everything I Knew To Be True
by Rayne York
Genre: YA Contemporary Fiction
Release Date: May 12th 2019
It was never easy for Cassie and her mother, struggling to make ends meet in their tiny apartment in The Bronx, but they had each other and that was enough. When her mother dies suddenly from an aggressive form of cancer, Cassie is forced to finish high school in California while living with the wealthy family of her mother’s closest friend—a woman she never knew existed.
Living with the Stantons is the complete opposite of what she’s used to—the massive house, a father figure, and Cody, the spoiled, insanely good-looking son with the bedroom across the hall.
Broken with grief and struggling to fit in, Cassie meets Mila, a female powerhouse that helps her cope with a hidden past, the overwhelming present, and a shared experience no one should have to endure—a nightmare they both thought was over.
Warning: Although this book is classified as Young Adult, I recommend it for mature readers due to explicit language and content.
What was your inspiration for your book?
“Everything I Knew To Be True is also based on a vivid dream. As soon as I got my eyes working, I pulled out my computer and quickly wrote everything I could remember. After getting up, going to the washroom, and getting some water, I read it over, then wrote the basic outline for the book. In the back of Everything I Knew To Be True, I have added the original journal entry for the dream.”
