STU TRULY middle grade novel, July 2018

"Let me start by saying I believe in telling the truth. It’s  just that sometimes the truth is complicated."

Sixth Grade is hard enough, but when Stu Truly lies to impress his new crush, he finds that keeping up with the charade is a lot harder than he thought. 
 

Stu Truly is a moving and laugh-out-loud story about being yourself by Dan Richards, a talented author making his middle grade debut.

"A charming tale of angst and self-discovery."

    - Dav Pilkey, author of the Captain Underpants Series

"Richards’ first novel utterly charmingly and convincingly depicts a boy’s first crush on a female peer."

    - Kirkus Review, 2018
