Review: Lies My Girlfriend Told Me by Julie Anne Peters

Summary from Goodreads:

When Alix's charismatic girlfriend, Swanee, dies from sudden cardiac arrest, Alix is overcome with despair. As she searches Swanee's room for mementos of their relationship, she finds Swanee's cell phone, pinging with dozens of texts sent from a mysterious contact, L.T. The most recent text reads: "Please tell me what I did. Please, Swan. Te amo. I love you."

Shocked and betrayed, Alix learns that Swanee has been leading a double life--secretly dating a girl named Liana the entire time she's been with Alix. Alix texts Liana from Swanee's phone, pretending to be Swanee in order to gather information before finally meeting face-to-face to break the news.

Brought together by Swanee's lies, Alix and Liana become closer than they'd thought possible. But Alix is still hiding the truth from Liana. Alix knows what it feels like to be lied to--but will coming clean to Liana mean losing her, too?

My Review:

I mainly picked this book up because of the beautiful cover and not knowing anything about it. I really enjoyed it, but it was both heart wrenching and sweet at the same time.

It took a while to get to know the main character, Alix, but as the book goes on I liked her more and more. However, I think it was too short, I would have liked more to the story. The side characters were kind of nothing special, and Joss, the sister of Swan was really annoying.

I recommend checking out this book for a quick read.

My Rating:

Four out of Five Stars
