Review: The Lies About Truth by Courtney C. Stevens

Sadie Kingston, is a girl living in the aftermath. A year after surviving a car accident that killed her friend Trent and left her body and face scarred, she can’t move forward. The only person who seems to understand her is Trent’s brother, Max.

As Sadie begins to fall for Max, she's unsure if she is truly healed enough to be with him — even if Max is able to look at her scars and not shy away. But when the truth about the accident and subsequent events comes to light, Sadie has to decide if she can embrace the future or if she'll always be trapped in the past.

**I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher HarperTeen via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.  The expected publication date is November 3rd, 2015**

This was a touching story of friendship and how bonds can be torn apart from lies and tragedy and ultimately how these bonds can repair themselves.  This is told from the viewpoint of Sadie who suffered the worse physical injuries of the surviving members of the accident however it is the emotional scars that were worse than the physical.

While at no point did this story offer any surprises or major aha moments, it did tell a wonderful story of friendship and forgiveness.  This will make it appealing to the YA genre who is looking for stories of friendship with a little romance mixed in to the equation.

With the exception of a little bit of mild language (in which parents scold the language), this is also a very clean story.  This may appeal to parents;-)

Overall a pleasant read.
