Even When You Lie to Me by Jessica Alcott
Release Date: June 9, 2015

Goodreads Summary:
Fans of John Green's Looking for Alaska as well as Lauren Oliver and Sarah Dessen will embrace this provocative debut novel, an exploration of taboo love set against the backdrop of a suburban high school.

Charlie, a senior, isn't looking forward to her last year of high school. Another year of living in the shadow of her best friend, Lila. Another year of hiding behind the covers of her favorite novels. Another year of navigating her tense relationship with her perfectionist mom.

But everything changes when she meets her new English teacher. Mr. Drummond is smart. Irreverent. Funny. Hot. Everyone loves him. And Charlie thinks he's the only one who gets her.

She also thinks she might not be the only one with a crush.

In this stunning debut, Jessica Alcott explores relationships-and their boundaries-in a way that is both searingly honest and sympathetic.

Why I'm Waiting:
I'm a little iffy about this book. I think there's a way that it could definitely be written well, but it could also be done very poorly. I am interested to see how this book will end up being.


  1. Sounds like it could be a good read, I hope you do enjoy it.
