Nothing But the Truth

Written by Avi

Phillip Malloy has a problem. He is kept from joining the track team because of his poor grades in English, so he creates a difficult situation for his teacher, Miss Narwin: He hums during the national anthem. Told as a series of letters, journal entries, and memos, the book touches with patriotism, freedom, and how victory can seem hollow in the end.
