I really enjoyed this novel because it made me think about how well I know myself and those around me. As the story begins Julian, a lonely widow and semi-famous artist, leaves a green notebook labeled the Authenticity Project at Monica's cafe. Inside Julian writes about his life and challenges the next person, who finds it, to do the same and answer the following question; share your truth and reveal the one thing about you that defines you and makes everything about you fall into place. As the notebook is discovered by Monica and Hazard and Riley and others new friendships are created and truths about oneself revealed.
