The Lie That BindsThe Lie That Binds by Amy Argent
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

High school, full of bullies, cliques, and doing your very best to fit in. The book starts with Holly who just started out at a new high school. She wants to get in with the cool kids, like any girl her age would, but she quickly finds out that teenagers can be cruel. Nathan is a jerk, but there is so much more than meets the eye. Intriguing from the start, you find out about what Nathan is really hiding. His secrets lead to more between him and Holly, and the story that evolves is one that will keep the pages turning almost of their own volition. The story had its slow parts, but in general, it was compelling enough to keep you invested. At the start, I thought it was going to be more focused on the bullying and I wasn’t sure how to feel about it. As the story moves forward, there is more to it. Takes you back to that young age where what your friends thought about you felt like the most important thing in the world. I recommend this book if you enjoy a clique high school dynamic, a web of secrets, and characters that have more depth to them then they let on!
