TELL ME NO LIES by Adele Griffin GIVEAWAY & First Impressions | blog tour

Hello! Today I'm sharing an excerpt of Adele Griffin's TELL ME NO LIES (in stores June 12, from Algonquin), as well as my initial thoughts on this 80s-set companion novel to Be True to Me. Make sure to read all the way to the end to enter to win a copy!

Excerpt copyright Adele Griffin and Alngonquin Books, and subject to change on publication, as I am reading from an unfinished copy.

A riveting novel about secrecy, complicated friendships, and heartbreak, set against the iconic backdrop of the late 1980s.

Lizzy Swift is a senior in high school, emerging from her nerd chrysalis to become a social butterfly. She starts dating popular Matt Ashley, whom she’s been pining for since freshman year. She’s delighted when rebellious new girl Claire Reynolds introduces her to Center City Philadelphia—clubs, street life, and the eye-opening art scene. As Lizzy begins to question her own long-held dreams, the changes in her life mirror the upheaval of a decade marked by a drug epidemic and the AIDS crisis. She’s no longer sure of her Ivy League ambition. While she has a special connection with Matt, something’s missing. And Claire carries around a mysterious sadness and talks about a breakup so bad she changed schools—but she won’t tell the whole story. Lizzy wants Claire to confide in her, even as she keeps her own embarrassing secrets.

Before too long, the heady thrill of her new life starts to crumble under insecurities and deceptions. When the truth emerges from the wreckage, will it be too late for Lizzy, Claire, and Matt to save their love and friendships?
