Truth and objectivity are themes very commonly found in fiction; some of my favorite books weave in and out of these diaphanous topics. In the Time of the Butterflies is told through the eyes and words of a group of sisters living during a harsh political regime in Central America. Till We Have Faces by CS Lewis is a retelling of the myth of Cupid and Psyche from the perspective the "jealous" older sister, and it is a completely different story. Many recent young adult novels also tackle this subject such as Loser, Hoot, and another book whose title is escaping me right now. You may not have time this semester, but check them out sometime.
