Two Truths and a Lie: A Novel
Two Truths and a Lie is a book that centers on a group of women who all have daughters in the sixth grade. They call themselves “The Mom Squad.” They are all wealthy women and as catty as the high schoolers known as mean girls. One of the women, Rebecca, who also has an older daughter named Alexa, has just lost her husband to a brain aneurysm and has started to separate herself from the group. Throughout the story, I feel that she and Alexa are the ones who learn and grow the most. They are also the least annoying characters. Rebecca befriends a new lady in town named Sherri. Sherri and her daughter Katie are in the witness protection program.
The whole story was very contrived and the characters were just a bunch of spoiled rich ladies like on the “Housewives” shows on television. The story jumped around and there were parts that were narrated by “The Mom Squad,” so it felt a bit like Gossip Girl with those narrations. This book is a decent beach read but don’t expect to fall in love with it.
