Liar, by Justine Larbalestier

LiarMicah Wilkins is a liar.  She freely admits it, right on the first page of this book.  After seventeen years of telling lie after lie, Micah has finally decided to come clean about who she is and what her life is all about.  She feels she has to, because her boyfriend has been found dead—murdered.  Well, Zach wasn’t really Micah’s boyfriend.  He already had a girl.  But Micah was Zach’s secret girlfriend….his part-time girl, his running partner, his partner in guilt.  Micah has always wanted to be invisible at school and to the whole world.  Getting noticed means the necessity of new lies to hide behind.  But when Zach’s mutilated body turns up and Micah’s secret relationship with him is revealed, she suddenly finds herself the hostile center of attention at school—and at the police station too.  Can Micah break through her web of lies and tell us, her readers, the 100% truth…..or has she deceived herself most of all?
