Dare You to Lie by Amber Lynn Natusch - HIGH

Dare You to Lie by Amber Lynn Natusch, 351 pages.  Tor Teen (Macmillan), 2018.  $18.  

Content: Language: R (150+ swears; 7 “f”); Mature Content: PG-13; Violence: PG-13.  



Kylene left her home town two years ago over “Boob-gate”, her nickname for when someone took a picture of her topless while she was unconscious, but now that her FBI father has been incarcerated for killing a cop, Kylene has to go back home and live with her grandfather.  Two major mysteries run throughout the book, who took indecent pictures of her and posted them on social media, and who is framing her father for murder.  Kylene has two best friends and an unexpected ally in a new FBI agent who help her uncover the facts.  

I couldn’t put this book down.  Kylene is spunky and pushes the limits and I love the minor characters.  If you like Veronica Mars, then you will enjoy this read as well.  The swear count is high and there is physical abuse as well as beatings and attempted murder making the buying advisory optional.
