Where the Truth Lies by Jessica Warman

Source: Publisher

On the surface, Emily Meckler leads the perfect life. She has three best friends, two loving parents, and the ideal setup at the Connecticut prep school where her father is the headmaster. But Emily also suffers from devastating nightmares about fire and water, and nobody knows why. Then the enigmatic Del Sugar enters her life, and Emily is immediately swept away—but her passionate relationship with Del is just the first of many things that aren't quite what they seem in Emily's life. As the lies she's been told start to unravel, Emily must set out to discover the truth regarding her nightmare; on a journey that will lead her to question everything she thought she knew about love, family, and her own idyllic past.

When I finished this book, I didn't know what to think about. It had really captivated me and I waited a while before I sat down to write this review. Where the Truth Lies is a very powerful story about how one girl thought she knew everything, but she actually didn't.

Emily is a character who when you first take a glance at her, you know she has a perfect life, but underneath the surface, she's actually suffering from nightmares. She's the daughter of the headmaster, but later on in the book, you find out she's not as perfect and her life isn't the best. She suffers lies. She evern meets Del and at first she thinks he's the best person and he loves her and she loves him. Both there descriptions and dialogues were exactly how a teen would act and talk. Jessica Warman really stayed true to who her characters really were.

The book had a sort of mysterious plot which I enjoyed a lot. Also, the cover is amazing. Bloomsbury always does an amazing job with their covers and all I can give them is 5 stars every time.

Overall, I enjoyed this book and will be reading more books by Jessica Warman in the future.

♥♥♥♥ 1/2
