The Big Lie
Pre-Recorded Audio Player
In a gripping novel set in present-day England under a Nazi regime, a sheltered teen questions what it means to be "good"--and how far she's willing to go to break the rules.
Nazi England, 2014. Jessika Keller is a good girl--a champion ice skater, model student of the Bund Deutscher Madel, and dutiful daughter of the Greater German Reich. Her best friend, Clementine, is not so submissive. Passionately different, Clem is outspoken, dangerous, and radical. And the regime has noticed. Jess cannot keep both her perfect life and her dearest friend, her first love. But which can she live without? Haunting, intricate, and unforgettable, The Big Lie unflinchingly interrogates perceptions of revolution, feminism, sexuality, and protest. Back matter includes historical notes from the author discussing her reasons for writing an "alt-history" story and the power of speculative fiction.
