Fabulous Free Fiction

It's that time again!! It's been a while since I've done a giveaway on my own, not a blog hop, but I'm in the mood. Without further ado...

What You Get:
The Secret to Lying 
The Secret To Lying, by Todd Mitchell.

From the back cover of the ARC: James was the guy no one noticed- a fifteen-year-old living in a small town with his repairman father and ex-beauty queen mother. So when he gets into the American Science and Mathematics Academy (or ASMA), a public boarding school, James decides that it's time to leave the past behind. In a student body made up of nerds and geeks, being cool is easy. All it takes is a few harmless lies to invent the new James: rebel, punk, street fighter. Everyone's impressed, except for the beautiful Ellie Frost, whose icy demeanor holds an inexplicable attraction for James, and the mysterious Ghost44, an IM presence who sees right through his new identity. 


But James is riding high- playing pranks and hooking up with the luscious Jessica Keen. Things seem perfect until he begins having strange and vivid dreams that pull him into a dark city haunted by demons. As the line between dreams and reality blurs, James begins to wonder, what's the price for being the coolest guy around?


Funny and real, Todd Mitchell's debut YA novel takes readers into a school for the intellectually gifted and socially awkward, as readers discover through James the secret - and consequences- to lying.

I can't really think of any memorable lies... I did have a jerk boyfriend or two in the past lie to me though, and those were pretty memorable!

Thank you for the great giveaway! I'm a GFC follower as fletch8502.

I used to lie all the time about writing/being a writer. Whenever anyone asked what I was doing, I would say it was homework even though it was really novels or short stories. I didn't tell the truth about writing until my first short story was published and the book was in my hands!

Now, on to one of my best/worst lies (lying is something I really don't care to do much of lol): One Easter my kids had approached the age of *questioning* whether or not "the Easter Bunny" was real. My youngest still wanted to believe, so as an added touch of *realism* I made tiny bunny tracks by dipping three fingers in baby powder and leaving *proof* all over the house!

Not sure that was a good parental idea hahaha

I don't have a memorable lie. I usually tell some people half truths just so I or they don't get hurt :P
