Secrets, lies, murder and betrayal.
Micah Wilkins is a liar. But when her boyfriend, Zach, dies under brutal circumstances, the shock might be enough to set her straight. Or maybe not. Especially when lying comes as naturally to her as breathing. Was Micah dating Zach? Did they kiss? Did she see him the night he died? And is she really hiding a family secret? Where does the actual truth lie?
Liar is a breathtaking roller-coaster read that will have you up all night, desperately seeking for something true.
Liar is one of the very best books I have read recently - I stayed up long past my bedtime to find out what happened. And even now, months later, I am still not completely sure. Micah is a brilliant, though remarkably unreliable, character who forces her way off the page and into your life. It's controversial, compelling and certainly a strong contender for the Gold Inky.
Justine is another Australian author living away from our shores, but we love her nonetheless. Liar is published by Allen & Unwin and you can vote for it here.
