Told through the eyes of Gabe and Elyse, Lies You Never Told Me alternates chapters in their views to align their lives together. Elyse has made the lead in the school play, and while her best friend Brynn has given her grief, thinking the part should have been hers instead, Elyse takes the role and runs with it. Her drama teacher, Mr. Hunter has taken quite the interest in her, perhaps too much of an interest.
Gabe has had enough of his girlfriend Sasha, the popular girl with all the snark, she rules his life and he’s unhappy. But breaking up with her might just cause more problems than staying together with her.
Donaldson has done a superb job of creating a suspenseful story in Lies You Never Told Me. Just when I thought I was onto the plot, she threw the readers for a massive loop. It’s a fast-paced, impossible to put down read that is sure to leave you on the edge of your seat with your jaw dropped with each new twist.
