Review: Seven Ways We Lie

Seven Ways We Lie Seven Ways We Lie by Riley Redgate
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Book Talk:
Seven Ways We Lie is a look at high school life from the perspective of seven different teenagers. Each character has a persona that is very different from the life that they live when no one is watching. There is the popular soccer player who is struggling with his sexuality, the self-proclaimed loner who really wants to belong, the all-round good guy-turned-drug dealer, and the cheerleader who is leading a double life.

My Thoughts:
It is an entertaining read, but very predictable. There is some language (including liberal use of the f-word). Several scenes involve sexual interactions between students, although not graphic. Also, there is a student/teacher relationship that made me very uncomfortable.

My Rating:
Still, 4 stars.
