Description

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author CJ Lyons comes The Color of Lies, a world drenched in color and mystery.

High school senior Ella Cleary has always been good at reading people. Her family has a rare medical condition called synesthesia that scrambles the senses--her Gram Helen sees every sound, and her uncle Joe can literally taste words. Ella's own synesthesia manifests itself as the ability to see colors that reveal people's true emotions...until she meets a guy she just can't read.

Alec is a mystery to Ella, a handsome, enigmatic young journalist who makes her feel normal for the first time in her life. That is, until he reveals the real reason why he sought her out--he wants to learn the truth behind her parents' deaths, the parents that Ella had always been told died in a fire. Alec turns Ella's world upside down when he tells her their deaths were definitely not an accident.

After learning her entire life has been a lie, Ella doesn't know who she can trust or even who she really is. With her adoptive family keeping secrets and the evidence mixing fact and fiction, the only way for Ella to learn the truth about her past is to find a killer.

Perfect for fans of Caroline B. Cooney, Ally Carter, and Jennifer Brown, The Color of Lies blurs the lines between black-and-white facts and the kaleidoscope of reality.
