Description

Sharp-edged and voice-driven, Meredith Miller's How We Learned to Lie is a raw and unflinching look at friendship, violence, and life in a town on the brink. Perfect for fans of Lynn Weingarten and Meg Medina.

This isn't a love story, but it is a story about love.

This is the story of Joan Harris and Daisy McNamara and the year everything in their lives came apart.

It starts when Robbie McNamara appears at Joan's house with someone else's blood dripping from his hands. Then it all unravels from there in a string of bad angel dust, good biology teachers, rusty scalpels, and stunning car crashes. People keep disappearing, and everyone is lying.

There was always Joan and Daisy, just Daisy and Joan. The thing is, even if you love someone, how long should you hold on before letting go to save yourself?

Review quote

"Miller's style is languid and portentous...This is for readers who enjoy poetic, character-driven fiction and don't mind some gauziness to their grit."--Booklist
