Micah will freely admit she’s a compulsive liar, but that may be the one honest thing she’ll ever tell you. Over the years she’s fooled everyone: her classmates, her teachers, even her parents. And she’s always managed to stay one step ahead of her lies. That is, until her boyfriend dies under brutal circumstances and her dishonesty begins to catch up with her. But is it possible to tell the truth when lying comes as easily as breathing? Taking listeners deep into the psyche of a young woman who will say just about anything to convince them — and herself — that she’s finally come clean, Liar is a bone-chilling thriller that will have listeners seesawing between truths and lies right up to the end. Honestly.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Dark, gripping…An engrossing story of teenage life on the margins.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Readers will get chills paging through Larbalestier’s suspenseful novel…With a masterfully constructed unreliable narrator [they] will be guessing and theorizing long after they’ve finished this gripping story.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“By the end of this extraordinary book, listeners will either be desperate to discuss it with others or ready to delve right back in to listen again in an effort to figure out the truth-and most will probably want to do both.” School Library Journal (starred audio review)
“Larbalestier creates and sustains a marvelous tension…Micah is wonderfully complex, both irritating and immensely likable.” Booklist
“An extraordinary and original story that will have you grasping for the truth until the last page. Verdict: Forget about sleeping.” Herald Sun
