The Lie That Binds by Amy Argent – Review by Amanda Swindle
The Lie That Binds by Amy Argent
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Lie That Binds is a YA romance with a twist of lies and secrets. Holly just moved to a new town and wants to fit in, just like any other schoolgirl. She soon finds out the “popular” girls are not her crowd, and the hunky Nathan isn’t all that she thought he would be…but she is still drawn to him. Nathan is equally drawn to Holly….and then his secret comes out. The same secrets that draw them close together soon has Holly wondering if his feelings are real, or just a means to keep his secrets safe. The Lie That Binds is very much your typical high school drama, and all that comes with it, so I had a difficult time connecting with the moody, ever changing characters. I was often a little frustrated with the characters and wanted to shake sense into them (but again, they are high school kids, so maybe this was intended). I did enjoy the storyline and where it ended up going, so I will give this one 4 stars, and I can definitely see the appeal for higher ratings from a younger audience!
