Would highly recommend this book to any young adult.By ybforzAnother exceptional book by Julie Anne Peters! I loved the plotline. It took me by surprise at times. Would highly recommend this book to any young adult. Always a joy to read her books, and I can't wait to finish her other book It's Our Prom (so deal with it) When Alix's charismatic girlfriend, Swanee, dies from sudden cardiac arrest, Alix is overcome with despair. As she searches Swanee's room for mementos of their relationship, she finds Swanee's cell phone, pinging with dozens of texts sent from a mysterious contact, L.T. The most recent text reads: "Please tell me what I did. Please, Swan. Te amo. I love you." From School Library JournalGr 9 UpAlix's world is turned upside down after falling for popular and confident Swanee, so much so that ditching her friends and playing by her love's rules seems almost too easy. When her mom breaks the news that Swanee has suddenly died of an unexpected cardiac arrest, Alix has a hard time accepting that her vivacious and seductive girlfriend is really gone. In Peters's newest offering, questions of love and honesty abound. After Alix gets ahold of Swanee's cell phone, she discovers texts revealing that Swanee had been carrying on an affair with another girl. To find out more about the mysterious L.T., she sends her a message, pretending to be Swanee, before ultimately tracking her down and giving her the news of Swanee's death. Alix finds out her name, Lianna, and that they share more than just a girlfriend in common. They begin spending more and more time together, and despite her best intentions, and the fact that she's falling hard for her, Alix can't bring herself to tell Lianna that she had sent the texts pretending to be Swanee. This dilemma, which naturally resolves itself into a happy high school love affair, is the largest conflict in the plot. Questions about Swanee's controlling nature arise, as do the effect her neglectful parents had on her and her sister, but the majority of the book leaves readers with what is largely a love story with a small mystery thrown in. The book does not focus on sexuality, and it's a pleasure to read a typical teen romance that just happens to be between two girls. Romance fans of any persuasion will be swept up in this slow-paced but ultimately sweet story.Joanna Sondheim, Columbia Grammar Preparatory School, New York CityFrom BooklistSo many lies. When her girlfriend Swanee dies suddenly, Alix is devastated to discover that Swanee has been secretly dating another girl, Liana. For complex reasons, Alix feels it is her responsibility to tell Liana of Swanees death. But in so doing, she creates a web of lies that will come to haunt her as the girls meet and bond over their mutual experience of betrayal. The bond quickly turns into friendship and then into love. Alix knows she must finally tell Liana the truth, but will it strengthen their relationship or destroy it? Peters has written another insightful, absorbing novel of relationships that is both emotionally and intellectually satisfying. Alix and Liana are multidimensional characters with whom readers will identify and empathize. Peters thematic treatment of lies and truth is nicely realized and never pedantic. This will have widespread appeal to both gay and straight readers and is another strong offering from a well-established, popular author. Grades 7-12. --Michael Cart Praise for Lies My Girlfriend Told Me:"This book tenderly explores themes of loss and forgiveness... Peters capably addresses teen LGBT relationships without making them the story's sole preoccupation."
