The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett by Chelsea Sedoti
Published: January 3rd 2017
A teenage misfit named Hawthorn Creely inserts herself in the investigation of missing person Lizzie Lovett, who disappeared mysteriously while camping with her boyfriend. Hawthorn doesn’t mean to interfere, but she has a pretty crazy theory about what happened to Lizzie. In order to prove it, she decides to immerse herself in Lizzie’s life. That includes taking her job… and her boyfriend. It’s a huge risk — but it’s just what Hawthorn needs to find her own place in the world.
A very unique book. I was expecting a quick, fun read similar to The Duff. I was very wrong.
There are so many intricate layers of Lizzie Lovett. An exceptional story arc with many key players to move the story along.
The protagonist mimics the life of Lizzie, a life she paradoxically idolized and hated. It’s interesting to see her navigate through her feelings of grief and loss. A compelling read, YA stepping up in its best form.
I can’t wait to read more from this author.Such a great little book! The mystery. The world development. The strong, rounded characters. I loved every bit of it.
