Exquisite. A perfect balancing act. Just how unreliable is this narrator? Who knows? I'm not sure Larbalestier knows. The cover is too overtly feminine for Micah, but thank the stars they changed the image.

This book takes you through so many twists and turns that you really want to believe in, but you're not sure you can. You won't be able to put it down. It's amazing.

"Staff Pick" by ,

1. This book is fantastic.

2. It is told by Micah, a compulsive liar

3. It's kind of a love story, kind of a murder mystery, but it mostly defies categories.

4. I was never sure I could believe what she was telling me

5. I couldn’t stop reading it. (No lie.)

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Readers will get chills paging through Larbalestier's (How to Ditch Your Fairy) suspenseful novel about a compulsive liar who becomes a suspect in her boyfriend's murder. Micah admits it is hard to believe a girl who has pretended 'she's a boy, a hermaphrodite, or that her daddy's an arms dealer,' but when Zach, the popular boy who was secretly seeing her 'after hours,' is found dead, Micah claims innocence, promising to tell readers her story with 'No lies, no omissions.' But the supernatural tale she tells may be her wildest yet. Micah composes her story in short sections labeled 'Before' and 'After' (the murder), as well as 'History of Me,' 'Family History' and other categories. This is a well-paced novel with a masterfully constructed unreliable narrator, confessing to lies she has told readers along the way ('You buy everything, don't you? You make it too easy') and explaining how she makes lies believable. Could Micah really be innocent, or is she a confused girl who killed out of jealousy? Is she even human? Readers will be guessing and theorizing long after they've finished this gripping story. Ages 14 — up." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Synopsis" by , Micah freely admits that she's a compulsive liar. Over the years she's duped her classmates, her teachers, and her parents. But when her boyfriend dies under brutal circumstances, the shock might be enough to set her straight. Or maybe not.
"Synopsis" by ,
A wildly entertaining novel about a young man who discovers that he is part of a secret society of immortal were-creatures bent on hunting one another into extinction.
"Synopsis" by ,
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.

"Synopsis" by ,

Micah will freely admit that shes a compulsive liar, but that may be the one honest thing shell ever tell you. Over the years shes duped her classmates, her teachers, and even her parents, and shes always managed to stay one step ahead of her lies. That is, until her boyfriend dies under brutal circumstances and her dishonesty begins to catch up with her. But is it possible to tell the truth when lying comes as naturally as breathing? Taking readers deep into the psyche of a young woman who will say just about anything to convince them—and herself—that shes finally come clean, Liar is a bone-chilling thriller that will have readers see-sawing between truths and lies right up to the end. Honestly.
