#BookReview: Lies You Never Told Me by Jennifer Donaldson

Reviewed By: Jessica P. 
Publisher: Razorbill
Recommended Age: Young Adult 
Genre: Thriller
About the Book:

Gabe and Elyse have never met. But they both have something to hide.

Quiet, shy Elyse can't believe it when she's cast as the lead in her Portland high school's production of Romeo and Juliet. Her best friend, Brynn, is usually the star, and Elyse isn't sure she's up to the task. But when someone at rehearsals starts to catch her eye--someone she knows she absolutely shouldn't be with--she can't help but be pulled into the spotlight. 

Austin native Gabe is contemplating the unthinkable--breaking up with Sasha, his headstrong, popular girlfriend. She's not going to let him slip through her fingers, though, and when rumors start to circulate around school, he knows she has the power to change his life forever. 

Gabe and Elyse both make the mistake of falling for the wrong person, and falling hard. Told in parallel narratives, this twisty, shocking story shows how one bad choice can lead to a spiral of unforeseen consequences that not everyone will survive.

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: This book lies on the suspense and I am glad I got the chance to read it. 

Do I Recommend this book? For those who love multi POVs and suspense. 

Notes and Opinions: This book I won from Bookish First and it was really good. I do not think it falls under the amazing rating but it was still very worth the read and enjoyable.  I think this one did have a few issues but that was with some of the characters that I just didn't care for.  The first chapter of this one was really good!!!  Then the good just kind of goes on and off through the story.  

So for me this was one killer thriller that I could not put down but some of the characters I just didn't mesh well with so it made reading about them kinda meh.  But overall the book was very entertaining. 

Go Into This One Knowing:  Multi POV, Entertaining, Some Meh Characters
