Teens. Race. Hatred. Love.
Inspired by real events, LIE is a story of consequences
-- of a hate crime, of prejudice, and,
of the decision to tell the truth -- or lie.
EVERYBODY IS TALKING ABOUT LIE...

""You're going to be sorry when LIE ends ...older teens will be riveted as well as adults...It's a knock out...finely wrought, nuanced truth."
-- National Public Radio review, (WSHU), December, 2011
"Bock writes with power and a deep understanding of human beings..."
"LIE is one of those stories that was really intense yet also gripping, which kept me from being able to put it down. It was short, which was a good thing, because it kind of had me in knots while I was reading...Lie is not one of those books that I hugged when I was finished. But I will say that it is really excellent and I love how it was written. It broke my heart. It fueled my righteous anger. It made me sad, so very sad. It is one that should be read..."
"I wanted to scream at all of the teens..."
