Liar Review

                Liar by Justine Larbalestier is the twelfth book I’ve read this year and it was quite an interesting read.
                The story is told by Micah, a high school girl who openly admits to being a compulsive liar. As soon as the book starts, everything jumps into action. After her ‘boyfriend’ is mysteriously murdered, her world turns upside down as she begins to get caught up in the lies she’s been spreading since her first day at high school. The tale goes on as Micah unfolds her story—or what she says to be her story—in a completely original way, constantly going from past to present in an attempt to find the truth about her boyfriend’s murder. But you never quite know if she’s telling the truth.        
                This was probably one of the best books I’ve read this year. It was new, fresh, innovative and entertaining. The dialogue was fluid and real and the plot was so engaging, I could hardly put it down.
                If you’re looking for some good summer reading, I would definitely recommend this book.
                What books do you all have on your summer reading list?

Sounds cool! I like how you said that you never know if she's telling the truth. . . does that mean the entire story could be a lie?
Haha, I'll definitely check it out!
