Philip Malloy was kept from joining the track team by his failing grades in English class. He thought his teacher just didn't like him. He never thought it would get worse by humming the national anthem in class. And it ends up as a crisis at the center of the nation's attention. I think if you like freedom of speech you would love NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH. But even if you don't care about freedom of speech, you'd love this book. Katlinn O.
