One Too Many Lies
Paige and her friends tell the subtle lies that are a part of daily life. White lies to avoid insulting friends. Fibs to escape unwanted judgment from classmates. Half-truths to evade their parents' watchful eyes. But could their lies become dangerous? What happens when the lies become a matter of life and death?
* Reviews *
"Debut author Bowen ultimately offers a glimmer of redemption. Without judgment, she uses Paige's first-person narrative to show the dangers of alcohol and drugs by constructing a linear path of poems that will haunt the reader. Engaging novel." —Kirkus
"Give this coming-of-age work to fans of YA verse novels and reluctant readers." —School Library Journal
