Jamison Sharpe is a little too perfect. Maybe he's a total con artist.
...Or maybe Viveca just sees what she wants to.
Have you ever known someone you couldn’t quite pin down? Are they genuine . . . or are they devious and manipulative? And why are you the only one who can see it?
Why Would I Lie? is a YA psychological thriller about a senior class valedictorian who becomes obsessed with proving that a charismatic new classmate is not all he seems.
"An excellent read for any teen who is trying to unlock the mysteries of jealousy and self-awareness and searching for joy." –School Library Journal
"Viveca's fixation on her grades at the expense of genuine passion or intrinsic interest, all while pushing away friendships, delivers a nuanced depiction of burnout." –Kirkus
