Sadie Kingston, is a girl living in the aftermath. A year after surviving a car accident that killed her friend Trent and left her body and face scarred, she can’t move forward. The only person who seems to understand her is Trent’s brother, Max.

As Sadie begins to fall for Max, she's unsure if she is truly healed enough to be with him β€” even if Max is able to look at her scars and not shy away. But when the truth about the accident and subsequent events comes to light, Sadie has to decide if she can embrace the future or if she'll always be trapped in the past.

5 Stars

At the end of 2013 I fell in love with Faking Normal and I knew I had to read any book written by this author because I knew it would be great. And then I got this one on Edelweiss and when I read it… I loved it even more than I thought I would. So. Many. Feels.

The Lies About Truth tells the story of Sadie Kingston. A year ago she survived a horrible car accident that killed her friend Trent and left her face and body scarred. She can’t seem to move forward and the one one that seems to understand her is Trent’s brother, Max. When Max comes back home after being gone for so long, the past starts to surface again and Sadie has to face all the truths about the accident or be trapped in the past.

Courtney makes me feel with her books. So very much. I felt for Sadie the moment I started reading. Part of that is great writing, of course. But it’s more than that. It’s the story, the characters, all of it combined. This story was so moving and uplifting. I was crying happy and sad tears at once when I finished this. It really is such a beautiful story. Needless to say this author has moved onto my author auto-buy list. I need to read everything from this author. I really do.

The best thing about this book has to be the characters. I felt for every single one of them. From the main characters to her parents to her friends. I loved them all and I cared about them. I loved Sadie, she’s such a strong character. She really is. I adored Max so very much. Their romance was very sweet and it didn’t get in the way of the rest of the story, it actually helped it move along. Max is total book-boyfriend material. Seriously.

The Lies About Truth is another beautiful, touching story by this author and I can’t recommend it enough to fans of contemporary. I feel like this author deserves all the attention, so read this book. You won’t regret it!

  1. I loved this one too! I agree with you, Max is definitely book boyfriend material πŸ˜€ I loved his character too, especially how different his responses were compared to Sadie’s, even though they went through a lot of the same stuff. And you are so right- it IS beautiful. I was crying for happy AND sad things too! So, so glad you loved this!
