Description from the publisher:
Caitlyn Davis always cruised through life, not being the type to ruffle feathers or involve herself in high school drama…until a chance encounter with a strange, homeless man changes everything.

Suddenly, Caitlyn has the ability to see behind people’s masks. She discovers that her life isn’t as simple as she imagined and her high school is filled with secrets…some very sinister ones.

Unable to ignore her new gift, Caitlyn embarks on a mission to learn why one of her friends now appears terrified, but masks her fear behind a bright, smiling veneer. Will Caitlyn’s new ability lead her into hot water? Or is her new found vision a blessing that will expose her friends’ true colors?

Her quest will lead Caitlyn to lose friends, stand up for those in need, and even find love.

At Palisades High School every face tells a story…

This is the first in a new series from young adult author, Melissa Pearl.
Eighteen-year-old Caitlyn Davis is in the popular crowd at her private high school in Berkley, CA, but she is the quiet one in the bunch.  She is always supportive of her friends, a people-pleaser.  One night, while out clubbing, she steps out into the alley to grab a breath of fresh air and meets a homeless man.  A touch of his hand transfers a gift to Caity.  Her new ability to see behind the masks of her friends sends her on a quest to stand up for someone in need.
The conversations are quick, lively, and natural.  It is easy to fall into the school community and recognize all of the cliques.  I am absolutely in love with Caitlyn and Eric.  I swear, Ms. Pearl found my old diaries when she was developing Caity; she is so much like me at that age, full of self-doubt and hope.
TRUE COLORS stands on its own; no cliffhanger.  I am looking forward to seeing what hot water Caitlyn finds herself in when we return to this beach community.  This is the downside of reading before release.  I have to wait even longer!
Ms. Pearl has asked me to invite you all as my guests to the True Colors Masquerade Ball on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/events/468910383213992/.  Let her know you heard about it here at Page Princess.
