The Truth About Jack by Jody Gehrman
Release Date: 04/14/15
Entangled Crush
Summary from Goodreads:
Dakota McCloud has just been accepted into a prestigious art school. Soon she'llleave behind the artists' colony where she grew up―hippie dad, tofu since birth, yurt―and join her boyfriend and best friend on the East Coast. It was the plan…until Dakota finds out her boyfriend and best friend hooked up behind her back. 

Hurt and viciously betrayed, Dakota pours out her heart on a piece of paper, places it in a bottle, and hurls it into the ocean. But it doesn't quite go where she expects… 

Jack Sauvage finds the bottle washed up on the shore and responds to Dakota's letter. Except what if his straight-laced life doesn’t jive with the free-spirited girl he’s only seen from afar? As Jack creates a persona he believes she’ll love, they slowly fallfor each other with each new letter. Now Jack is trying to find a way to make this delicate, on-paper romance happen in real life…without revealing his deception.

Character Profile: Dakota McCloud

Age: 17

Hometown: Luna Cove, California

Likes: Raspberry scones, chai, the ocean, sculptures made of recycled junk.

Hates: Betrayal, bad art, Internet trolls, biscotti.

Quirks: She’s obsessed with Barcelona. She likes hanging out in junkyards, scavenging materials for her sculptures. She’s never owned a TV.

Dakota’s Passion: Growing up in Luna Cove, the artist colony her parents founded, Dakota’s always been immersed in art. She started painting as a kid, covering mailboxes and rocks with mermaids, fairies, and gargoyles. Soon, though, she progressed to three-dimensional art--sculptures made from found objects. When she’s working on a sculpture, she loses all sense of time. Her awareness narrows, eclipsing everything around her. She wants to take the stuff nobody wants anymore and transform it into beauty--that’s what she sees as her purpose here on earth.

Dakota’s Secret: Her mom left five years ago, and she’s never really gotten over it. Her dad’s awesome--supportive, warm, smart--but she finds it hard to talk to him about the gaping hole her mom left behind when she moved out. These days Dakota gets the occasional generic group text from her mother, which really stings. Her mom left Luna Cove with the guy who would become her next husband and completely transformed herself from hippie extraordinaire to SUV-driving southerner.
