Justine Larbalestier's brilliant CBCA short-listed YA novel has a truly compelling unreliable narrator who will have readers guessing until the very last page, and beyond.

Secrets, lies, murder and betrayal.

Micah Wilkins is a liar. But when her boyfriend, Zach, dies under brutal circumstances, the shock might be enough to set her straight. Or maybe not. Especially when lying comes as naturally to her as breathing. Was Micah dating Zach? Did they kiss? Did she see him the night he died? And is she really hiding a family secret? Where does the actual truth lie?

Liar is a breathtaking roller-coaster read that will have you grasping for the truth until the very last page. Honestly.
