Publisher's Summary

The author of The Big F is back with another snappy, utterly relatable contemporary audiobook about loving yourself and forging your own path.

Savannah is dreading being home alone with her overbearing mother after her big sister - and best friend - goes off to college. But if she can just get through senior year, she'll be able to escape to college, too. What she doesn't count on is that her mother's obsession with weight has only grown deeper since her appearance on an extreme weight-loss show, and now Savvy's mom is pressuring her even harder to be constantly mindful of what she eats. Between her mom's diet-helicoptering, missing her sister, and worrying about her collegiate future, Savvy has enough to worry about. And then she meets George, the cute new kid at school who has insecurities of his own. As Savvy and George grow closer, they help each other discover how to live in the moment and enjoy the here and now before it disappears.

To Be Honest is another sharp, witty audiobook from Maggie Ann Martin, about a spunky heroine who is dealing with very real issues - body image, parental pressure, loneliness, first love, and finding your way - with heart and humor.

Praise for The Big F:

"Martin's first book is nothing short of amazing! You'll laugh, cry and scream with every page as you follow Danielle and her realistic yet zany post-high-school antics.... The Big F deserves an A-plus for being the quirkiest, most fun-loving read of [the year] so far!" (RT Book Reviews)

"A debut novel sure to resonate with high schoolers who eagerly anticipate graduation and the start of college." (School Library Journal)

Great YA listen!

I’ve been in a huge YA mood lately, and To Be Honest really hit the spot. I listened to the audio book and the narrator was great. She voiced Savannah perfectly. 

Savannah is a normal teen. She’s a little overweight, but it’s never bothered her. That is, until her mother went on a reality show for weight loss and everything changed in her house. Now, she’s being pressured constantly to eat a certain way. What I loved most about Savvy is that she could see beyond that and was able to stand up to her mom.


I also loved the friendship aspect of this book. Grace was the best best friend and she and Savvy’s relationship was great. Also, Savvy’s relationship with her sister, Ashley was great. The romantic aspect of the story wasn’t the biggest part of the book, but GEORGE. Sigh. I adored George. I really liked how this one turned out. Overall, a fantastic YA book I would highly recommend.

teenager love

I loved this book, and the performance of the story teller. I wish it looked more into sav life of being over weight and how it affected her life. I liked the relationship of mother and daughter who didn't get along and the struggles but how sav tried to amend the relationship.

surprisingly straight forward

this could have for complicated and start explaining what we all see and hear in the media.
but instead it was a fluid look at the end of collabe and touched on things most of us would have gone through, sibling separation,, parent selfishness, new love, school triumphs, friend help, smart adventures.
all good times.
enjoy the ride.
