"In this beautifully written, smart and soulful book, Erica Williams Simon gives us what we all need more of: The knowing that life, at its best, is more about wonder than certainty. With You Deserve the Truth, Erica invites us beyond the old stories we've been told about ourselves, and into the wonder of our dreams, hopes and love - so we can find our truth and purpose there."

--Glennon Doyle, author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller LOVE WARRIOR and founder of Together Rising
"Erica is the girlfriend everyone deserves: full of wisdom, grace and unwavering honesty. You Deserve the Truth is the smart and all too real guidebook for anyone striving to craft an authentic and inspired life from the ground up. Erica's willingness to share the messy parts of her truth is a needed reminder for the rest of us to live ours."

--Franchesca Ramsey, author of Well, That Escalated Quickly and host of MTV's Decoded
"For a straightforward and honest look under the hood of the human experience, soiled but also blessed by what social media has done to it, Erica Williams Simon's You Deserve the Truth will act as a roadmap that can feel like an iron fist in a cashmere glove: delicate and warm but unflinching and equable at once. If we are, as she says, all wayfinders, Erica is the closest thing we get to a guide."--Leandra Medine, founder of Man Repeller
"[A] gratifying debut... Millennials looking for advice from a perceptive peer will appreciate Simon's refreshingly blunt take on happiness."--Publishers Weekly
"Our lives are filled with story; Simon's book deconstructs her personal stories about fear, dreams, work, money, time, faith, and love... Simon mixes her personal experience with national and global examples of nascent narrative intelligence. Her writing style is readable and engaging, and her message matters."--Booklist
