Review of The Lie That Binds by Amy Argent

I am a liar.

I lie to protect myself.

I lie because I’m terrified.

I lie to keep a secret that would destroy everything in my life if everyone knew.

Holly is the new girl at school and my unwilling lab partner. She hates me because I’m one of the popular guys—one of the bullies who terrorize the unfortunate and the unpopular. For me, it’s who I’ve had to become to keep anyone from getting too close—close enough to see right through me.

When Holly finds out my secret, I have to do whatever it takes to keep her quiet—even if it means telling the most damaging lie of all—the one I tell myself.


My Review: 4.5 STARS

I picked this up having read the blurb and decided that it sounded like a pretty thrilling read, and I wasn’t disappointed. Bad guy and good girl tropes are strong in this one I adored the dynamic between Holly and Nathan. I loved watching them fall in love and everything that went with it. Argent has a way of making the characters feel real, pulling you along for the journey and loving every second of it. The book was amazing from start to finish and the only reason I took a break from reading was to get some sleep. Overall, an amazing story and one that I think will appeal to most readers.
