LIAR is the new book from Justine Larbalestier, expected from Bloomsbury Publishing in October 2009.
We received ARCs today and based on the sneak peek flyer we received in the mail, I just can’t wait to dive into it. It looks like a deliciously twisted bone-chiller with a fantasticly unreliable narrator. Bloomsbury is targeting the book to ages 14+, planning for an online teaser campaign, a multi-city author tour, Blog tour, web site pitch, and YA listserv. Awesome!
From the back cover: Micah will freely admit that she’s a compulsive liar, but that may be the one honest thing she’ll ever tell you. Ove the years she’s duped her classmates, her teachers, and 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 naturally as breathing?
Interested in reading the ARC and writing a review? Let me know.
