Description

When secrets are forced into the light, will the bonds between Claire, Lizzy, and Matt be enough to keep everything from falling apart?
 
Life changes for Lizzy Swift when Claire Reynolds transfers to the Argyll School in their senior year. Claire is all Lizzy is not—reckless, independent, effortlessly cool. Claire introduces Lizzy to downtown Philadelphia—its clubs, parties, and vibrant art scene, and helps her get together with Matt, who Lizzy’s been crushing on for years. Soon Lizzy’s once-quiet life is full of adventure and passion. But Lizzy’s grades are slipping, and her new relationships are complicated. Sometimes Lizzy feels that she and Matt are soul mates, but other times he holds back from her. Claire can be moody and evasive, too. Lizzy knows her boyfriend and best friend are hiding things from her. Can what they have together last when the truth comes out?


Praise For Tell Me No Lies

“What’s most refreshing about Tell Me No Lies is its 80s Philly setting. Missing from the narrative are social media snafus; instead, three teens long to create genuine personal relationships . . .  Soon hell breaks loose when secrets are kept and lies are told. This is not the 80's of John Hughes movies.”
—W Magazine
 
“In a story containing as many secrets as main characters, Griffin delivers a universal message about openness and honesty.”
—Publishers Weekly

“A contemplatively paced coming-of-age story . . . while fans of Stranger Things are likely to appreciate the 1980s cultural references, themes of being true to yourself and honest with your friends are timeless.”
