eSpotlight Extra - The Big Library Read Starts Tomorrow!

It's that time again -- another Big Library Read!

Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett Cover - Yellow with white daisy petals around the words: everyone has their own version of the truth

Join us October 12 - 26 for the world-wide online book group - the Big Library Read

This time we're reading the Young Adult novel The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett by Chelsea Sedoti.

Hawthorn wasn't trying to insert herself into a missing person's investigation. Or maybe she was. But that's only because Lizzie Lovett's disappearance is the one fascinating mystery their sleepy town has ever had. Bad things don't happen to popular girls like Lizzie Lovett, and Hawthorn is convinced she'll turn up at any moment--which means the time for speculation is now.

So Hawthorn comes up with her own theory for Lizzie's disappearance. A theory way too absurd to take seriously...at first. The more Hawthorn talks, the more she believes. And what better way to collect evidence than to immerse herself in Lizzie's life? Like getting a job at the diner where Lizzie worked and hanging out with Lizzie's boyfriend. After all, it's not as if he killed her--or did he?

Told with a unique voice that is both hilarious and heart-wrenching, Hawthorn's quest for proof may uncover the greatest truth is within herself. - From The Big Library Read
