The Lie That Binds by Amy Argent
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Holly is the new girl in school, she has been here before and she is hoping that she won’t have to be here again, but she decides that this time will be different, this time, she will be one of the popular kids, this time, she won’t be an outcast, so apart from the usual first day jitters when she has to introduce herself to each of her classes, but there is one thing she doesn’t expect and that is how gorgeous one of the popular kids is. One lunch, Holly finally decides to try her luck at the popular table, but as usual, it backfires and she is back to being the pariah, back to being insulted and terrorized by the popular kids as they bully her again, so she again gravitates to the outcasts who she knows will take her in and become the friends she needs and wants.
As the days pass and the novelty of being the new girl wears off, all she has to do now is not freak out every time she sits with her chemistry lab partner, who just happens to be the gorgeous popular guy who is one of the main bully’s in the school, but sometimes when he thinks nobody sees, flashes of what lies behind the façade show through, but it isn’t until her friend is the target of a malicious prank that she sees just what he is hiding.
Holly discovers the lie which this person has been hiding behind, she discovers just what they have worked so hard to protect and she discovers just how terrified they are that people will discover just how scared they are that everyone will find out and what the consequences of that would be. This lie binds Holly and her lab partner together, but what lengths they will go to keep this lie intact? This is an intense contemporary romance which deals with some hard hitting subjects and will leave you hooked as you follow along on the journey one lie can take someone on and how it affects everyone who comes into contact with it.
