Favorites: Lie to Me

What first drew me to Lie to Me was the idea that three sisters could be blessed with special spiritual gifts, but one of these sisters' gifts appeared to be broken. 

Having such a blessing/curse would provide enough problems for a teenage girl, but adding in the confusion of your gift not working only makes the situation worse. The main character, Phoebe, begins the book harboring a certain amount of jealousy that her sisters' gift work wonderfully. Her often sour attitude reflects her emotional turmoil. 

Then, Phoebe is completely thrown when her secret desire to have a working gift is finally realized. The emotional battle that she faces proves that having a gift isn't all she thought it would be. This book is full of ups and downs. The reader is pulled along with Phoebe as she tries to figure out what to do with her new found gift without screwing up everything else in her life in the process. 

Lie to Me is available now from SmashwordsAmazon, and Barnes and Noble
