The Seven Ways We Lie follows seven teenagers and each of them are struggling with one particular deadly sin, set against the scandal of a student/teacher love affair and the election of junior class president.
I was ridiculously excited when I read the blurb for this book. It was looking pretty great: debut novel written by a university undergraduate (one of my favourite things to discover), rag tag group of
five seven, I was ready for this to be the next Breakfast Club. Bring it on.
And what I got was a beautiful written story, completely full of character depth, that I could not put down at all.
