Tally pays a price for being perfect/imperfect in the novel ~ This Much Is True

Perfect? Imperfect? She gets a bad rap from some readers. What do I have to say about that?

This. You might not like her (Tally Landon, the narrator persona, me – the author) but you should remember that this character is only 17; and she doesn’t like herself very much. Thus, she’s self-destructive at times and self-preserving at others. She’s edgy and dark and a perfectionist, “and trying to find her way in a world she’s unsure she still belongs in,” as Marla tells Linc at one point.

Not everyone will get Tally; I knew that going in when I decided to write this book.

But for those that do?

She is truly amazing; isn’t she?
