Title:

There Will Be Lies,
Daisy, 16.


This book is about:
An over-protected girl finding the unsuspected truth in her life with a fantasy twist.


Review:
I really wanted to like this book. Unfortunately, I just could not engage with Nick Lake's writing style, so I found reading it to be a chore - an exciting one - but still. I found the story's twists completely out of the blue, which should be a good thing, but I just found them entirely out of place and forced. Overall, it's an arguable plot with a writing style I didn't enjoy, but somehow the story still had its own unique charm.


Plot:
Shelby is home-schooled and is protected from the world by her over-bearing mother. But, after a car-crash and Coyote, she begins to discover the truth behind her mother's secrets. And it changes her life forever.
