With a Truth Telling gift that has never worked, Phoebe Matlin accepted long ago that she was broken.

Then one simple lie changes everything and suddenly the whisper of liar is ripping through her. Some lies, though, cover darker truths than Phoebe ever imagined.

But knowing when someone is lying is the easy part. It’s convincing everyone else that’s the problem.


Phoebe Matlin is a triplet. Her other sisters, Chloe and Lily had their gifts earlier than Phoebe. Chloe can see the future, and Lily can heal people. The story was really unexpected. It isn’t a hard core paranormal book. The story is practically 50% about how Phoebe takes in her truth telling gift, and 50% about her school life (the drama, boys, the enemy). I was expecting Phoebe, the main character, to be sort of like a shy type since she’s the only one left in her family who didn’t have her power. Nope. She was very outgoing and just your high school girl who payed more attention to drama and boys. Lie To Me was really an interesting and fun read! I liked how Phoebe’s school life tied in with the discovery of her gift. It’s 1st person point of view with Phoebe being the narrator.

The problem that I had though is that after the prologue, things got kind of confusing until I passed a few chapters where I realized what happened. Also, there wasn’t really an explanation of why Phoebe’s special talent came in late. I think it would be cooler if there was an explanation or something and how their family acquired special gifts. I do like everything else though. Finding out whether Phoebe’s bestfriend’s boyfriend was telling the truth or a lie kept me reading on. I also enjoyed reading how Phoebe, her friends and her sisters would hang out and watch movies etc. but then something would happen… dun dun dun.

The ending though, oh my gosh. CLIFF HANGER. I was shocked that it just ended like that! I feel like most teenagers would relate to this book. It consists of having fun, living the high school life with some paranormal elements. I recommend this if you’re up for a fun, light paranormal read!
