It added a bit of extra chill factor to the book, and that's the only bit of the story I didn't guess - who was behind those messages.

Sue's books are just amazing, she makea the story come to life, and for me when I read a book I take a long time to finish it, but I can take a week to read this wonderful books.

You may think that this piece has all the ingredients of your typical young adult thriller novel, however I personally feel that it is more a story of courage. Kłamstwo minionego lata” to pasjonujący, emocjonujący kryminał dla młodszej i starszej młodzieży, dzieciaków, którzy szukają dreszczu emocji, ale wciąż jeszcze nie są gotowi na brutalne, bezlitosne powieści detektywistyczne dla dorosłych. The book begins in the past at Yew Tree House, last summer, where we catch a glimpse of what happened to Luisa, Skye's sister and how Skye was involved. There she meets an assortment of characters, including shy and retiring Fay, and strange, angry Joe.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Could all of her concerns stem from an overactive imagination or is there something more ominous underway at Morley and who, if any, of her campmates can she really trust. All of the kids at the summer camp have lost someone close, but the last thing Sky wants to do is think about the past. This makes me sad because I really did get into it and enjoyed the first portion, I wanted more from it and it unfortunately didn't deliver. However, before too long she starts receiving messages from her dead sister through a password protected messaging app they always used to chat away from the prying eyes of their parents.All of the kids at the summer camp have lost someone close, but is bringing them together such a good idea? Lying About Last Summer is the debut YA psychological thriller by former journalist Sue Wallman and was selected for the Zoella Book Club in autumn 2016.

Teenage Skye (her age isn't given but it appears she is about 15) loses her sister to a murder/drowning accident, a tragedy that rips apart her family and sends her into seclusion, denial, and an unhealthy extended mourning. I came across Sue Wallman’s books about six months ago when I was browsing through YA, and have now read all three. It's beautifully subtle in its slow reveal of what happened last summer, which works well alongside the vivid characters who are all dealing with having lost someone they care about. Its approach to death is all the more delicate as it explores the matter from a teenager’s perspective. Having read and enjoyed Sue Wallman's other two YA novels earlier in the year, I always expected to like this one.Supposed to be Skye’s opportunity to gain ‘closure’ she sees it more as an escape route from being hassled by her overcompensating parents and a grateful distraction from the memory of Luisa’s death. Her parents think sending Skye to a holiday camp for beggared teens will help her move on with her life. They might even be dangerous, and Sky soon realises that if she wants to get to the bottom of the messages, she cannot trust anyone but herself.
