There Will Be Lies by Nick Lake
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It will only be four hours before Shelby is struck by a car and her life changes forever. When she leaves the hospital, her mother tells her they are finally going to visit the Grand Canyon. Shelby is told that her father (who she believed was dead) has discovered their whereabouts and they must try and disappear again. Unfortunately, Shelby can tell that her mother is still hiding the truth and as the story continues to change and her mother keeps acting unlike herself, Shelby does not know who she can trust. To top it all off, she had begun to have strange dreams that are leaving clues in the waking world. What is her subconscious trying to tell her?
There Will Be Lies is a roller coaster of a thriller. There are many times the reader will believe the story is about to come to a climax, but then they look at the book and realize they aren’t even half way through. Emotions are high for the all the characters and the reader will quickly feel intimately involved with the story. Although I wanted to get to the end of the book just to know the truth, I was sad for the story to end since this book was a welcome distraction and a truly enjoyable read. Lake has created a story that will tug at the heartstrings of the young and the more mature reader. I recommend this book to ALL readers whether you normally read YA or not.
