The Lies They Tell is a smart light mystery with suspenseful undertones that will engage you from the beginning Seriously the first chapter um wow talk about hooking me in right from the beginning In a town plagued by the uber rich and the working class townies Tenney s Harbor Maine is a town not unlike other nautical New England towns that have been famously depicted in film and media in the past I was immediately transported back to my time vacationing in the Hamptons and Rhode Island with this clever story In Tenney s Harbor the uber rich are a tight knit community where competition is key and privilege is currency The Garrisons are the picture perfect family and have mysteriously has been slaughtered in an arson on the family property Pearl Haskins eighteen year old country club server in Tenney s Harbor and her father are shamed as gossip and rumors run rampant Pearl s father was the caretaker of the Garrison property and is blacklisted in town due to his possible involvement andor negligence in the Garrison tragedy Plagued with guilt and embarrassment Pearl s father turns to alcohol to mask his pain while Pearl is angry at the upper class enemyThis summer Pearl encounters a group of boys at the country club who gravitate towards her These boys are some of the most privileged in town and one has taken a liking to her While Pearl is grossly unattracted to the demeanor exhibited by these boys she decides to try and get in their inner circle so she can exonerate her father from any wrongdoing accusations by the townsfolk As Pearl dives into the world of the glitz and glamour she realizes that everything is not what it seems With money comes power and with power comes corruption betrayal and deception The Lies They Tell is such a refreshing read for the thriller fan because it s original straight forward and uncomplicated We are usually given these stories that have over the top in your face tricks to attract an audience but with The Lies They Tell we get something tailored This story is a slowburn at heart so please make sure to read this story at the right time or you may need to put this down and come back to it I was just off a book hangover from another book and was ready for something light and new The book is labeled Young Adult but it doesn t compare to other Young Adult reads that I ve read recently because it s not campy dry nor one dimensional The characters all have distinct personalities and stories that are stimulating The ending is very satisfying and also is left for interpretation I wonder if there will be a book two praying to the book Gods because I m not ready to say goodbye just yet The story deals with romance family dynamics income ineuality and privilege and alcoholism but the story does not try to wrap this all in one complicated message We touch on a variety of different subjects but the main story arc is never lost or deterred I really enjoyed Gillian French s nautical spin on a contemporary mystery and am excited for what s next
