Lying Out Loud
Publisher: Hodder Children's Books
Sonny has learned to become a very proficient liar. She lies about her mum kicking her out, about her dad being in prison and about having to stay at best friend Amy's house. Lying about stuff means she doesn't have to face up to things. When Sonny takes a fancy to Ryder Cross, the new boy at school, things get complicated. Soon Sonny's lies get out of hand as she struggles to preserve both her friendship with Amy and her relationship with Ryder.
A companion story to The Duff, this is a fun and easy read about the complications of family, friendship and romance. Perfect holiday reading!
