Liar by Justine Larbalestier

Review by Tiffany, Rincon Valley Branch, Young Adult Librarian

When you start Liar, you know one thing right off the bat.  Micah, the narrator, is a liar.  She tells you this, but she also says that you, the reader, can trust her, because she won't lie to you.  Micah starts telling you her story about how she started the 9th grade and pretended to be a boy and how she is the secret boyfriend of popular classmate Zach.  When Zach is found murdered, you begin to question her story.  Is Micah telling you the truth?  Is she somehow involved with Zach's murder?  As the reader you have to decide how much is true or false.  Can you trust Micah's story?
