Review: “This Lie Will Kill You” by Chelsea Pitcher

Disclosure: This book was provided to me by Edelweiss free of charge in return for an honest and unbiased review. This book is scheduled to be released on December 11, 2018 by Margaret K. McElderry Books.

I have a confession to make.  I am a complete sucker for shows like “Pretty Little Liars” and “Harper’s Island”.  You know, the genre of show where I can yell, “Bitch, try locking your door!” and for one hour feel slightly superior that I would survive the wrath of a maniacal killer on a (twinkie induced, maybe?) rampage.  Let’s be real, though.  If I were in a similar situation, I would totally die.  I mean, I’m the comic relief.  I’d be the second person bumped off – hell, FIRST if all my Asian friends decided to stay home that evening.  Plus, I can’t even really run and power-walking away from a killer just isn’t going to get you very far even if it does prevent me from contracting a debilitating case of the tripsies.  That being said, I just can’t say no to a cheesy, teenybopper revenge thriller.
