Lie to Me, Kaitlin Ward

515+RnhIPRL

Amelia has woken up in the hospital after falling over a cliff that she’s visited countless times. With a broken arm and a concussion, she can’t remember the fall, but she has a feeling that it was more than just a fall. What’s worse, is that this isn’t a single incident, yet she isn’t sure if she should speak up about her feelings. We follow her in her not only in her quest to figure out what happened to her but as she navigates her friendships and relationships.

I had mixed feelings about Amelia. At times she was rather funny, and I really liked her. But other times, she had suspicions and gut feelings, and she just ignored them. True, I’m not a teenager anymore, so I can’t say if that’s typical, but it doesn’t feel it. As far as the writing, it was simplistic, with some poor word choice here and there (saying crafting supplies were inexplicable when her mother is crafting Halloween decorations, for example).

I felt Grace and Sky’s characters could have been more developed because they made great friends to Amelia. I also really liked how well Amelia and her brother got along because that isn’t always typical, so it was refreshing. I had the plot mentally written out before it came to fruition somewhere around 30% in, but it didn’t stop me from reading because it was an enjoyable read. There’s a bit of everything in this one, some thriller, some romance, and some general feel-good moments, so I think this will be a hit or miss for some readers. Overall I liked it. I’m not really one for half stars in ratings, but I think I would overall rate this a 3.5

Read my review on Amazon, Goodreads, and Bookbub, give it a like while you’re there. Lie to Me is available for purchase on Amazon for $7.99.
