“Your lies get stronger and weirder and denser, get bigger than words, turn into worlds, and become real.”
“I will tell you my story and I will tell it straight. No lies, no omissions.
That’s my promise.
This time I truly mean it.”
Even that last line is a lie! I LOVED this book. I know I say that a lot, so let me clarify. It was mind boggling and quite entertaining. However I must warn you, so you’re not alarmed. This book contains strong language, graphic details of the murder, and sexual content (no scenes just talk about it). More so than any other young adult book I’ve read. It’s not too explicit, but initially it shocked me just a little. This reminds me of the movie Vanilla Sky. It will definitely get your wheels turning trying to figure out fact from fiction. The narrator, Micah, takes the reader on such an intricate weaved journey of complex and simple lies that’ll definitely keep you on your toes. The story is divided into three parts: telling the truth, telling the true truth, and the actual real truth. It’s jammed packed with lies, half truth, and omissions. In the end you will still question whether Micah’s genuine. I especially enjoyed the hint of paranormal with the mind tricks. If I tell you anymore I’d give it away, so read if for yourself.
