Y'all, I'm totally guilty of judging books by their covers. I know, I know, but I can't help it. A pretty cover is much more likely to catch my eye.
And This Story Is a Lie has a very sucky cover. It's awful. Is it supposed to be, like, a cheetah or some other spotted animal? Is it, like, an orange kiwi with little black seeds? Is it supposed to evoke, like, going into warp speed, but toward the sun? idk Looking closely at the actual cover, I guess they're supposed to be fingerprints, but, blech.
BUT IGNORE THE COVER ON THIS ONE, Y'ALL! Because it is so not a sucky story!
It's a thriller featuring a math prodigy who suffers terribly from anxiety. His mom is almost murdered in front of him and his twin sister disappears, and Pete has to get to the bottom of it all. But... the lies. Oh, god. So many lies. And his anxiety is triggering some ~fantastic~ fear responses. :/ But hopefully someone's telling a least a little bit of truth so that Pete can figure it all out?
Prove the cover wrong and read this un-put-down-able not-sucky story!
