Synopsis

Micah is a liar. That's the one thing she won't lie about. Over the years, she's duped her classmates, her teachers, and even her parents. But when her boyfriend Zach dies under brutal circumstances, Micah sets out to tell the truth. At first the truth comes easily-because it is a lie. Other truths are so unbelievable, so outside the realm of normal, they must be a lie. And the honest truth is buried so deep in Micah's mind even she doesn't know if it's real. The ultimate unreliable narrator takes readers on a thrill ride in this highly acclaimed novel. Prepare to grasp for truth until the very last page."Readers will get chills . . . [and] be guessing and theorizing long after they've finished this gripping story." -Publishers Weekly, starred review"[Micah's] suspenseful, supernatural tale is engrossing. . . . The chilling story she spins will have readers' hearts racing." -School Library Journal, starred review"An engrossing story of teenage life on the margins." -Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Unrated Critic Reviews for Liar

Examiner

Liar by Justine Larbalestier could be described as a little bit fantasy, a lot psychological thriller, and a capital M mystery that’s woven through with a choose-your-own-adventure narration style based on lies and then hammered into a modern day retelling of The Boy Who Cried Wolf.
