Age Group: Young Adult
Summary: Sadie Kingston, is a girl living in the aftermath. A year after surviving a car accident that killed her friend Trent and left her body and face scarred, she can’t move forward. The only person who seems to understand her is Trent’s brother, Max.
As Sadie begins to fall for Max, she's unsure if she is truly healed enough to be with him — even if Max is able to look at her scars and not shy away. But when the truth about the accident and subsequent events comes to light, Sadie has to decide if she can embrace the future or if she'll always be trapped in the past.
My Thoughts: Wow, this one was so amazing and I enjoyed every minute of it. Part of me wishes it was longer. I didn’t want it to end!
We are introduced to Sadie who has survived a car accident. In the car was her best friend Trent. Sadie grew up with Trent and was always around him. Losing him devastates her but she also loses part of herself. Her self confidence. In the accident, she gets quite a few scars and has to live with the aftermath. The only person who really gets it is Trent’s younger brother Max. Max was also in the car that day. His trauma was his voice-box. He has gotten somewhat better but still has a raspy voice. In the car in front of them was Sadie’s boyfriend and another friend.
The Lies About The Truth was a wonderful novel. We see Sadie drift away from her boyfriend and she gets closer to Max. They email each other for a while because Max left for awhile with his parents. Once Max is back, Sadie and Max get to know one another in a new way. I just want to tell you everything that happens but this is one of those romantic sweet novels that I want everyone to read. It has so much going on, it's just not rainbows and sunshine. I enjoyed getting to know Sadie and Max and seeing their struggles and understanding them.
Overall: I really loved this one. Probably one of my favorites of the year so far! I just loved Max. So adorable! And I really did like Sadie's voice!
Cover: Love it! It just fits perfectly! The teens, the car, it just works! Cute!
