The Lie That Binds by Amy Argent – Review by Shai Flores
The Lie That Binds by Amy Argent
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the story of two teenagers that seem to be very different but end up having more in common than they thought. This was my first book by this author, and although it is not normally a genre I read since it is about teenagers in high school, I thought that it was well written and a beautiful story. Parts of it were predictable, but I really enjoyed the visibility and representation it gives to individuals with medical conditions that make their lives more difficult. There are some mature scenes in the book, but I think it touches on so many important topics for teenagers and the adults in the lives of teens (teachers, school staff, parents, etc) such as bullying, medical disabilities, friendship, courage, peer pressure, and depression. I definitely recommend this book and it was a quick, enjoyable read.
