    • Circle the Truth, by Pat Schmatz. This is a young adult novel. It took seven years and many re-writes, she says, but it’s very good. It is published by a small local publisher in Minneapolis, Carolrhoda Books Inc. The story involves a teenage boy, Orithian, who believed that his father was dead. He disliked his stepfather and thought things would have been better if his “real” father had lived. He makes a friend, Toby, who is interested in attending confirmation classes with him because hi [...]


    • "Circle the Truth" was a interesting book. I didn't quite understand everything about the book. The main character is Rith. Rith starts waking up during the night and sees changes in his house. As the nights go on with his house begins changing, he meets a old man who reads lines from the Bible, and a cat. Rith doesn't understand what is happening or what it's supposed to mean. As the book goes on, Rith starts to understand why everything started happening. I would recommend this book to anyone [...]


    • Pat Schmatz is an author I discovered this year, and immediately she became one of my favorites. In under a week I read three of her four available books. She writes powerful stories that delve deeply into the questions of who we are and finding our place in the world. This book is about learning who you are. It part about learning to be, and to be good at being, no matter what life has thrown at you.Rith is a young boy coming of age. He lives with his mother, his step father and his step sister [...]


    • Circle the Truth by Pat Schmatz is a dynamic, intertwined book about a 14 year old boy named Rith. Rith has grown up with his mom and his step dad and he's getting sick with the answers that his parents are giving him about his real dad and other things like religion. One night Rith wakes up to find that there is a different wooden stair case leading to the hallway by his room. After going down the stairs he finds an old man and a cat, the man seems to only be able to talk in bible verses and al [...]


    • Very sad, but very real. Though maybe not truth, as Rith came to realize.The subject matter hit close to home. Until the very end of the book, Rith believed his father had been killed in a drunk driving accident. I didn't really figure out who Bible Man wasybe just that. Bible Man. It made me sad. Walt was trying so hard in his own way, but Rith didn't understand. He didn't want to. But Walt pushed Rith too hard in some areas, like sports and the adoption issue.The last chapter made me go "A"Cle [...]


    • I can't think of a single book I read as a kid that allowed for the questioning of God. Being raised by a recovering Catholic, this would have been a great book to have. It's also just a really strong story, with characters you can really connect with and enjoy being alongside for the pretty surreal ride. One of my favourite aspects of this book was the character of Toby, a new friend who just seems really accepting of you and is in sync with things in the way you are. Great character to have in [...]


    • When I picked up this book and started reading it. I was guessing it was about maybe untangling a lie of some sort, but on the contrary. It actually brought in Biblical ties. If one isn't too religious, then this book isn't for you unless you are willing to set aside the religious side of the book to read a great book that helps a boy find the truth about who he is. He questions himself and finds no peace in having a step-father, but that all changes when one night he discovers that his living r [...]


    • I really enjoyed this book and i loved how it was really creepy and funny at the same time. I loved how the main character Rith was afraid of his room. This book is like my real life because i have a stepdad and i don't like him as much and so does rith. i think people who have stepdads or are afraid of there room should really read this.


    • I kept having to re-read whole sections of this book b/c it didn't seem to fit together. I have no idea who I would recommend this book to
