Publisher Comments:

Can honesty lead to heartbreak if the truth is subjective? A compelling novel in verse from Sonya Sones.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Fifteen-year-old Colette is addicted to lying. Her shrink says this is because sheand#8217;s got a very bad case of Daughter-of-a-famous-movie-star Disorderand#8212;so she lies to escape out from under her motherand#8217;s massive shadow. But Colette doesnand#8217;t see it that way. She says she lies because itand#8217;s the most fun she can have with her clothes on. Not that sheand#8217;s had that much fun with her clothes andlt;Iandgt;offandlt;/Iandgt;. At least not yet, anywayand#8230;andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;When her mother drags her away from Hollywood to spend the entire summer on location in a boring little town in the middle of nowhere, Colette is less than thrilled. But then she meets a sexy biker named Connor. Heand#8217;s older, gorgeous, funny, and totally into her. So what if she lies to him about her age, and about who her mother is? I mean, she andlt;Iandgt;hasandlt;/Iandgt; to keep her motherand#8217;s identity a secret from him. If he finds out who sheandlt;Iandgt; reallyandlt;/Iandgt; is, heand#8217;ll forget all about Colette, and start panting and drooling and asking her for her motherand#8217;s autograph. Just like everyone andlt;Iandgt;alwaysandlt;/Iandgt; does.andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;But what Colette doesnand#8217;t know is that Connor is keeping a secret of his ownand#8230;
