  1. oohhh these books are awesome! i want t o read “don’t breath a word”right now… it sounds AWESOME!!!! I think Across the universe would be a wonderful read for the candors ­čÖé

  2. When I think of honesty the first thing that comes to mind is when Harry Potter (I think that it was in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix) when he gets the scar on the back of his hand that reads, “I must not tell lies”.

  3. Wow, I really want to read Don’t┬áBreathe A Word. I think any dystopian would fit. ­čśŤ But in the end I decided that The Truth Machine by James Halperin is the PERFECT read for Candor.

  4. Why We Broke Up should definitely be a Candor read. Honesty is so important in a relationship, and this story is a great example of how keeping one’s real feelings a secret can break people apart.
