He had a lot of people recommending that Julie date him, but there was something that left Julie uneasy. Perhaps if she had followed her gut, her life would not have become even more of a nightmare than it had been. Then again, maybe she never would have found the strength to fight evil at its roots.

Julie Coons’s WHY SHE LIED is a jagged and heartbreaking tale of abuse, lies, deceit and the determination of one woman to protect her child at any cost. Told in the main character’s voice, this reads with a certain frantic and repetitive way, as if the jumbles of thoughts going through the main character, Julie’s head were spilling out with all of the uncertainty and horror she felt.

The story is definitely eye-opening, difficult to read and emotionally charged, but the style of the author’s writing was hard to stay connected with. There was too much repetition and wandering back and forth. That said, I do think it is a book worth reading, as it was based on a true story that is definitely horrendous.

I received a complimentary copy from Julie Coons! This is my honest and voluntary review.
