Feature Book Friday - Lies You Never Told Me
Lies You Never Told Me by Jennifer Donaldson I just want to say beforehand wow. Just wow. This book is powerful, mysterious, confusing, frustrating, has a lot of what the #$%^ moments, and a realization at the end that will blow you away. It's that good. It's so good I shared it with some of my top readers, and word got out, so I had to quickly add it into the system for people to check out.
This book has two narrators: Elyse and Gabe. At first, I will admit, this book is confusing at the start. It did take me a bit to really get into it because of that. But, as you start reading, you realize that you're reading two different stories, two different perspectives. And that's ok! Really, I promise. As you read more into the story, you realize that Elyse starts going down a path she shouldn't, and Gabe is with a girl who is popular but not right for him, but he feels trapped. The twists and turns in their story really take you for a rollercoaster ride. But that last drop - the reveal - will truly blow you away. Completely unpredictable, in a world where so many books and movies are overly-predictable. This is a total amazing read. Get past the first couple of chapters where you feel confused by the storylines and I guarantee you'll get sucked into Elyse's and Gabe's stories. This is a 5/5 star book if I ever read one.
