This is Micha’s story. The true story. She’s a liar. She’s managed to lie to everyone about everything, but now she’s going to reveal the truth. The truth about.. that night.. about “the family illness”.. and about everything she used to lie about before the event.. it’s time she’s honest with herself, and everyone else.
This book was really interesting. There were so many times when lies would just be revealed, or twsited and I wanted to shake the book and go “uggh stop lying!” and there were definitely parts where I was like “0____0” . But that is what drives the story and what made it so entertaining to read.
I felt bad for Micha, being a compulsive liar sounds like an awful lot of work… I was also interested in the way she broke up the story by chapters of ‘Before’, ‘After’, ‘Family History’.. it was a really interesting way to reveal things slowly throughout the book but still keep the reader on track. I liked it.
Justine Larbalestier is an interesting writer, and I’ve seen more of her works before (she wrote How To Ditch Your Fairy) so I think I’ll be looking into reading more of her books. Thanks for the suggestion Allison!
