Review - The Lies About Truth By Courtney C. Stevens

Published: 3rd November 2015

Sadie Kingston, is a girl living in the aftermath. A year after surviving a car accident that killed her friend Trent and left her body and face scarred, she can’t move forward. The only person who seems to understand her is Trent’s brother, Max.

As Sadie begins to fall for Max, she's unsure if she is truly healed enough to be with him — even if Max is able to look at her scars and not shy away. But when the truth about the accident and subsequent events comes to light, Sadie has to decide if she can embrace the future or if she'll always be trapped in the past.

I really enjoyed Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens so I knew going by that I would not be disappointed by The Truth About Lies and I really wasn't!

The Truth About Lies centres around a group of friends in the aftermath of a tragic accident leaving someone close to them dead. The story focuses on the relationships and how they have changed now one of the inner circle has gone. 

We are introduced to our main character Sadie, horribly scarred from the accident that killed her friend and struggling to find out who she is now and where she fits into the world. Everything is different now, the accident has changed the person she was, the group has been torn apart by secrets but can they reconnect over their shared grief of their loss. 

We follow the group as they try to reconnect and move past the tragedy. Courtney C. Stevens gives us such unique characters, they each have their own personalities and I felt like when the memories of the group was shared that I was with them experiencing them too. 

The Truth About Lies brought a tear to my eye and made my heart ache, it was realistic and not far fetched. Grief effects everyone differently and the book showed how each person coped with this and the guilt they each felt.

Beautifully written as usual, Courtney C. Stevens is an exciting author I look forward to reading other works off.

Rating: 4/5
