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 — 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 friends. 4 alive. 1 dead. 3 boys. 2 girls. & 3 massive lies that these friends tell after they have a car accident w/each other.
Tell us about the main character(s).
Sadie Kingston lives in the aftermath of a car accident that killed her friend, her friendships, and left her with visible scars and a pile of resentment. The Lies About Truth is Sadie’s struggle with the lies all friends tell, forgiveness, and the acceptance that the story of her life isn’t written in the scars on her body.
Was there a specific part in the book that you had an especially difficult time writing? If so, why?
In many ways, this book is about the end and reinvention of a relationship among dear friends. While I was writing The Lies About Truth, my own life mirrored that need for reinvention. For an end. For a new beginning. In a very different realm than Sadie, but the emotions were the same. Those are painful (and promising) things to live through. So, I had a hard time with the ending and Sadie’s choices, because I wasn’t sure of my own ending.
It was great having you on the blog today! We hope you’ll decide to stop by again someday, and we wish you much success!!
