Review by Shannon ~ @shannon.anicas on Instagram

Tell Me No Lies is a fantastic and authentic story that follows Lizzy and her senior year of high school. Ironically, it is the same time frame as my senior year, which added to the already accurate tale of cliques, jocks, geeks and the joy and heartbreak that is high school. It also touches on topics that were very relevant during the time the story takes place (1988-89). The things we feel or go through during those last year’s of high school can truly be brutal. They can set you up for future success or they can drive you far away from where you started. The author does a great job of showing that just because an adult feels something isn’t a big deal doesn’t mean it’s not a huge life destroying thing to us.
I highly recommend this young adult book, but for mature audiences because some of the discussions are for a mature reader.
