Release Date: February 5, 2019
Genre: Young Adult Psychological Thriller
Actual Rating: 3 stars (I liked it)
Filled with major twists and turns that had my head spinning, We Told Six Lies is bound to be a major hit upon release! There were so many times when I was reading this book that I thought I had it all figured out only to be completely surprised when I found out I was wrong. I give the author kudos for making things seem one way and then shocking readers with the truth. This is a hard feat for die hard YA thriller fans who have basically read them all- so great job! I commend your for your brilliant twists and turns. That being said, this is the first book I have read from the author and if she continues writing books like this one I know I will be happy to read it.
Some may wonder why I am giving three stars to a book that I am praising highly. Well the answer is this: a 3 star rating means that Iliked the book. And I did. There were a few things I found problematic about it (the author built up the story and title using words like "six lies" but didn't really wrap it up within the novel. I get the underlying message of the lies especially as they pertain to Molly, but I feel like I had too many questions ABOUT these lies that were never fully answered (possible spoiler: like WHY she lies to everyone about Cobain and their relationship before she goes missing). Had the author done a bit more with this then I probably would have given it a solid 4 stars.
Anyway, I won't get into the plot other than saying this is a young adult mystery and thriller about a missing girl and the suspicion that falls on her boyfriend. If I say any more I'm afraid it will spoil it for everyone so I just won't. But it is a good book, one I enjoyed reading (and actually devoured in one sitting), and would definitely recommend it to other readers.
