Micah Wilkins introduces herself as a seventeen year old girl living in New York City with her parents and her little brother. Michal attends an elite private school on a scholarship. Her favorite class is Biology and although she doesn't have many friends at school she enjoys school. And Micah is a compulsive liar. You can't trust anything she says. When Micah's classmate, Zach, is found dead in Central Park. Zach's death uncovers many of Micah's secrets, for instance she was Zach's "after hours girl" despite the fact that he was dating the popular and rich Sarah.

As Micah tells her story both before and after Zach's death you are drawn in but don't get too attached. As the story goes along Micah, although she has sworn she has given it up, reveals her lies (and there are many). You can't believe anything she tells you, especially the trivial facts. I loved Micah, and although her compulsive lying may turn some readers away I loved her the more for it.
