Lies Like Love

Young Adult Fiction

Lies Like Love is the haunting and heart-breaking new novel from Louisa Reid, critically acclaimed author of Black Heart Blue. Lies - 'There were a few problems ...bullying ...a fire...' Like - 'I think she's verging on psychosis ...now she's lashing out.' Love - 'She's got no one else to fight for her.' Sixteen year-old Audrey just wants to be normal. She's trying to fit in. But what happens when the person closest to you suffocates you with their love? What happens then? Praise for Louisa Reid: "Absolutely wonderful". (Guardian). "Emotive, sometimes shocking story". (Sunday Times). "Some books stay with you long after you've finished them and Reid's debut is one of them. It is a moving, gripping story". (Sun). "Stunning, shocking, sad and incredibly touching. We are pretty sure you will read it in one sitting then want to share the book with someone else". (LoveReading). "We read this in one sitting". (Teen Now). "The debut author of 2012 to watch". (Film vs Book). About the author: Louisa Reid is married with two young daughters and currently teaches English in a girls' school in Cambridge.
She is originally from Cheshire, studied English at Oxford and has lived in London and Zurich. Her pupils are definitely not the inspiration for her characters in her novels but witnessing their passion for great fiction inspired her to write for young adults.
