The Secret to Lying is about an average teenage boy--James--who decides to reinvent himself by lying to his new schoolmates and pretending to be a rebel. Soon, the lies pile up, and it becomes hard to discern the lies from reality. James deals with various teenage issues: confusion about one's identity, fitting in, being comfortable about one's self. Most of us have experienced the "Who Am I/Where do I Belong" phase in life. The book reminds us that there is life beyond high school's social cliques/circles, and although predictable at times, The Secret to Lying is a humorous and relatable read that should not be missed.
