My full review is now up on my blog, The Quiet Pond!

-

Holy shit, friends. This book CAME for me.

I didn't know what to expect but whatever expectations I had, The Best Lies took them, slapped me with them, and now I'm just dazed and in awe of this book's brilliance.

- Follows Remy, a teen whose boyfriend is shot dead by her best friend -- and she can't remember why.
- Told in alternating narratives, oscillating between past and present day, this is a story about obsessive and toxic friendships and dysfunctional families, and is one heck of a psychological mystery thriller. It's also about love, abuse, revenge, and the narratives we tell ourselves.
- The characters are amazing - fleshed out characters, twisted, awful, but... as awful as it was, I empathised with them at times.
- This book had me guessing throughout. I could feel the gears in my mind TURNING when thinking about how this would play out and end and what it all meant. The ending is incredible and just... spot-on.
- I... uh... seriously. read this. but this book is pretty intense and dark, so be careful!!
