Read full description of the books:
Wow, this book. It only took me two days to finish, but I have a feeling it may take me several years to figure out what it meant and how I feel about it. It is compelling, thought-provoking, and deeply unsettling. Our narrator, a teen girl named Micah, tells us right up front that she is a liar. She lies about everything to everybody. She promises that she is about to come clean and tell us the truth about the death of her boyfriend Zach, who is brutally murdered during their senior year. But is she telling the truth? The reader will have to sift through so many versions of reality, and so many layers of Micah’s lies, that you will be left not sure what has happened or what it means. The novel gives a whole new meaning to ‘unreliable narrator.’
Is something supernatural going on? Maybe. Or maybe not.
Is Micah a killer? Possibly, but possibly not.
Do some of the characters in the book even exist? By the end, you will not be sure.
If that sounds frustrating . . . well, it can be, but the book is also an incredible page-turner. Despite her lies or maybe-lies, Micah comes across as sympathetic. I liked her, no matter who (or what) she was. I can’t get into specifics without giving too much away, but if you want a murder mystery unlike anything you’ve ever read, check this book out. A great summer read.
