It can be awfully hard to tell what's happening in Justine Larbalestier's riveting mystery, Liar. Micah, the tough, talented narrator, is a liar to the core. She lies about her whereabouts, her boyfriend, her family members, even her own body. When the boyfriend, Zach, ends up dead, Micah's lies threaten to get her into serious trouble. Even worse, for once, they can't help her ease the pain of her life as it really is--no lies.
No one trusts Micah anymore, not even the reader, so no one can help her with the grief she feels. This book portrays a haunting story of the troubled Micah, the girl who cried wolf (in more ways than you can even imagine).
