Praise For Seven Ways We Lie…
". . . the characters are each distinct—Lucas' pansexuality and Valentine's asexuality are welcome explorations rarely seen in teen lit . . ."
"Most of the characters’ personal struggles are individually compelling, and most readers will find at least one person with whom they can identify... Redgate is right on trend with the type of story that’s popular with teens at the moment, and her book is sure to find a fan base."
"Debut author Redgate neatly captures the heart, soul, and social intricacies of a high school in a conservative Kansas City suburb...Redgate writes with much insight into the complicated world of contemporary high school, revealing both its hard edges (the taunts of jocks toward an eccentric outcast, vicious rumor mills) and its tender underbelly (the loyalty of friends, the pain of a broken first love, the excitement of new romance). By book's end, readers will feel like they have seven new friends."
Engaging and raw and real...a realistic contemporary YA delight.
