I have the best publicist at St. Martin's Press for LIE! Jessica sent this out... pass it along...!!
With the end of the year quickly approaching I wanted to make sure that you keep LIE by Caroline Bock in mind for your year-end 'Best of Young Adult' list.
This critically acclaimed YA title has received FOUR starred reviews from Kirkus, Library Journal, Publishers Weekly and Booklist!!
*Kirkus: "Realistic and devastatingly insightful, this novel can serve as a springboard to classroom and family discussions. Unusual and important."
*Library Journal: "Bock's debut will grip readers searching for complete realism in their fiction."
*PW: "Avoiding preachiness, Bock handles the novel's multiple viewpoints exceptionally well, rotating among the painfully believable voices of high school students and adults."
*Booklist: "Suspenseful and thought-provoking, this is a compellingly readable novel with a challenging theme and memorable characterizations."
Based on actual events in Long Island, New York, LIE is a harrowing story about a tight-knit town torn apart by a vicious hate crime. LIE was inspired by the murder of Marcelo Lucero, a news story that dominated headlines a few years ago and appeared on the front page of The New York Times.
I do hope you include LIE in your publication's year-end 'Best of Young Adult' list. Please contact me with any questions.
