Review: The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett

The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett by Chelsea Sedoti
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Book Talk:
Lizzie Lovett leads a picture perfect life. She has friends, a great job, and a handsome emo boyfriend who adores her. And Hawthorn hates her for it, because she wants what Lizzie Lovett has...until Lizzie winds up missing. Hawthorn decides to investigate, and winds up on a crazy adventure where she learns that not everything is at it seems.

My Thoughts:
I am so surprised by the number of five star reviews. This was NOT that good. It was entertaining and a very fast read, but weak compared to other YA novels out there. Hawthorn is a whiny, self-centered character who I just wanted to shake and tell to grow up. Lizzie's boyfriend is also whiny and pathetic. The only characters I cared about were small ones, like best friend Emily who stands up to Hawthorn, and Rush, the brother who tries to protect his sister. Oh, and the hippies. I do like the hippies. Still, a very uneven novel.

My Recommendation:
2.5/5 stars
Grades 8+ (mild adult situations, language)
