Remember how many lies we told, Molly? It’s enough to make my head spin. You were wild when I met you, and I was mad for you. But then something happened. And now you’re gone.
But don’t worry. I’ll find you. I just need to sift through the story of us to get to where you might be. I’ve got places to look, and a list of names.
The police have a list of names, too. See now? There’s another lie. There is only one person they’re really looking at, Molly.
And that’s yours truly.
Many thanks to Entangled Teen for providing me with a copy of We Told Six Lies, via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.
Ohhh I loved this book! I just read it in one day because I couldn’t put it down. Cobain is the slightly ‘weird’ kid at school. He doesn’t talk much, and tries to keep his head down and off everyone’s radar, but then Molly arrives. She sees him and seems to see him differently to everyone else. He finds himself falling for her in a big way, but then suddenly Molly is gone. She’s missing and the police keep asking him questions. He just wants everyone to stop asking him and find his girlfriend. But the more he talks to others about what they think happened, and the more he sorts through his own memories, the more he’s not sure how well he knew Molly, or himself.
This book was dark and creepy, in that desperate, possessive way. There are time jumps and huge twists that I DID NOT see coming. I didn’t even see them coming as they were unfolding in front of me. I literally turned to my husband and told him what the twist was, then realised THAT WASN’T EVEN IT. As the story starts to unfold in two different time frames (Then and Now), it slowly pieces together clues and information that lead to the big truth at the end. Honestly, I was so engrossed in this book, I was intensely reading it with wide eyes until I was done. I just had to know what happened! We Told Six Lies is one of the best YA thrillers I’ve read in a long time.
