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.

Our customer reviews

Ever read a choose your own ending stories? Where if you don't like where the storyline is going you simply have to flick a few pages and an alternate is presented to you. Liar reminds me of these choose your own ending stories. Micah the main character is a compulsive liar, she lies to everyone, you can take anything she says at face value. Which means that as the reader you can choose what aspects of the story you want to believe. Sort of like a choose your own adventure, you could read the story as being paranormal, a tradgic romance or just a mentally ill girl with a wild imagination. I think the aurthor did a wonderful job, and the book feeds the sense of imagination all avid readers have. I'd recommend for the 16+ age more
