Every Single Lie
Beckett has been the subject of quite a few gossip sessions since her father died. Rumors abound after his inexplicable and sudden death, stemming from his issues with drugs after active service and extensive questions after some legal problems regarding a crooked cop (her mother, no less). So nothing can help her when she finds a baby, wrapped up in a duffel bag, not breathing, in the high school gym locker. The rumors start flying that she is the baby’s mother, so she goes into detective mode and tries to determine who could be the mother. She keenly questions students, alienating friends and finding secrets she hadn’t heard through the gossip mill. What she discovers will break the town, especially her family, if word gets out.
Beckett, as a narrator, is believable and honest, leading a quest through her small town but misleading readers so thoroughly that the ending is completely shocking and unexpected. Fantastically fashioned and absolutely absorbing, this is a book for those who love Holly Jackson’s Good Girl series or Jennifer Lynn Barnes’ The Naturals series. Don’t save this for summer reading – read it now!
