"...the story is full of heart and will resonate with Raina Telgemeier fans."--School Library Journal

From the author of Dream On, Amber and Dara Palmer's Major Drama--one little lie equals one BIG mess!

Lexie and her cousin Eleni are super-crazy-mega-extra-seriously close. They're like twins who aren't actually twins, if that's possible. But when Lexie tells a terrible, jealous lie, her whole family is split apart.

It's up to Lexie to bring them all back together and fix her relationship with Eleni. After a few calamitous escapades, Lexie has discovered that there are all sorts of truths and all sorts of lies too...But can telling the truth be more hurtful than telling a lie?

Praise for Emma Shevah:
"[This] novel is a charmer...While its humor and illustrations lend it Wimpy Kid appeal, its emotional depth makes it stand out from the pack. Molto bene!"--Booklist, STARRED Review on Dream on, Amber

" Dara's larger-than-life personality and true-to-life middle grade issues command center stage until the curtain falls"--School Library Journal, STARRED Review for Dara Palmer's Major Drama

Review quote

"[a] heartfelt story of a loving Greek family from the perspective of Lexie, an otherwise honest do-gooder who is trying to understand that not all lies are the same. End pages include Greek recipes and a note about the author that's just as interesting as the novel. " - The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
