The Lies We Told - Review

Idgie Says:

A very twisty story, right to the final pages.

What do you do when you discover, at the early age of 3, that your beloved child is probably a sociopath?  One who will do everything to ensure she gets her way, and is only helped in this endeavor by learning a very dark secret about you, something that can always be held over your head?

This novel hops back and forth across a 20ish year timeline and as Claire desperately tries to find out what happened to her boyfriend, she also discovers that he..and his entire family...are not what they seem. 

Keeps you engaged through to the last page.
