About this deal

Skye has plenty of attitude but also an emotional depth and maturity beyond the much more familiar teenage angst. 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. I really felt what she was feeling in every moment whether that be dealing with her feelings of guilt, grief or trying to move on with her life. A week at Morley Hill Activity and Adventure Centre might just be what Skye needs to put a little distance between her and her now over-protective mother.

All of the kids at the summer camp have lost someone close, but is bringing them together such a good idea? Her sister died in a tragic accident and her parents think a camp for grieving teens might help her.Lying About Last Summer is simultaneously a carefully plotted page-turning thriller with a suitably dramatic, and largely unexpected, climax. In January 2007 I decided to stop faffing about From eight to eighteen years, I lived in Highcliffe, Christchurch, on the south coast of England. 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.

Sharing a room with sensitive and nervy Fay and spunky Dani, the other members of the group include surfer dude and highly sanctimonious, Joe, and ‘trying too hard to be different’ hunky Brandon.Then she begins to receive texts from someone pretending to be her dead sister - and decides no one can be trusted.

This YA debut is a moving account of overcoming grief, and also a gripping psychological thriller as Skye tries to find out who is behind the texts.How the mysterious texts (very PLL) were handled was amazing as Skye was just so level headed about the whole situation, keeping it as evidence and not freaking out like so many other high schoolers I've read about. Skye makes friends with Faye, Joe and Brandon who she builds a close relationship with and gave this story a hopeful outlook which was lovely.

What really made this book amazing is where I was having trouble trying to work it all out, and the outcome came so unexpected and for me that's what a thriller is all about! Overall, I'm left feeling a bit let down, the basis of the book sounded so good, but yeah, it's kind of left a bad taste in my mouth. Happy ending or not, I was still slightly disappointed that the explanations at the end felt rushed.E Lockhart paints a vivid portrait of the Sinclair family, spinning an addictive tale of first love, friendship and family that teens will find impossible to put down.
