With an unreliable narrator, nonlinear timeline and ambiguous ending, Larbalestier's psychological thriller is a well-written puzzle that leaves much open to the reader's own interpretation. Whatever you end up thinking about Micah, you won't forget her!
Micah Wilkins is a compulsive liar, which might be the only honest thing she ever tells you. She manages to keep all of the pieces in place until her secret boyfriend is killed, and her classmates and the police suspect that she's involved. She swears she isn't, but is that just another lie? (BLOOMSBURY, Oct., 388 pp., $16.99, ISBN: 9781599903057, HC, 14 and Up)
