Trust Me, I'm Lying is a smart, witty, and exciting book. The vocabulary lends to the credibility that the main character intends to go to Yale one day. In other words, even though this book is YA, it doesn't feel like someone "thesaurused-down" all the big words. This book is a demanding page turner. I believe every chapter ended on a cliffhanger. You think you can put it down and walk away for five minutes, and then, BANG! There was even a twist that I thought I saw coming, and it looked like I was right, but then NOPE, retwisted and turned into a moment full of "the feels."
