June 3, 09 What I Saw and How I Lied by Judy Blundell

My Readers That I Love,

What I Saw and How I Lied is really good.

What I Saw and How I Lied is about a girl named Evie living after World War II. After Evie's stepfather Joe comes home from the war, Evie, her mother and Joe go to Florida for a vacation. In Florida Evie meets Peter, an old war friend of Joe's. But there are secrets between Peter and Joe, and Evie must lie to conceal them. But can she?

Despite the fact that I didn't like any other characters besides Evie, I really enjoyed this book. I wish I had gotten more of a sense of who Evie was. I didn't think I was going to give this book a high rating, but once the plot kicked in near the ending, WHAM. It was full of suspense and the writing was excellent. If you like mystery, go for this book. Four out of five.
