Product Description

Lies We Tell Ourselves : Winner of the 2016 Inaugural Amnesty Honour

Lie #1: I'm not afraid Lie #2: I'm sure I'm doing the right thing Lie #3: I don't care what they think of me It's 1959. The battle for civil rights is raging. And it's Sarah's first day of school as one of the first black students at previously all-white Jefferson High.No one wants Sarah there., Not the Governor. Not the teachers. And certainly not the students - especially Linda, daughter of the town's most ardent segregationist.Sarah and Linda are supposed to despise each other., But the more time they spend together, the less their differences matter. And both girls start to feel something they've never felt before. Something they're determined to ignore., Because it's one thing to stand up to an unjust world - but another to be terrified of what's in your own heart. `The main characters are terrific in what is a moving YA novel. And an important one.' - The Telegraph' This is so thought-provoking it almost hurts to read it, yet every word is needed, is necessary and consequently this is a novel that lingers long after you've finished it' - Lovereading `This is an emotional and compelling read that I did not want to put down., It is [...]beautifully written and the tension just simmers on the pages.' - Bookbabblers `This Book packs a very powerful punch' - Historical Novel Society `With great characterisation, tough issues covered, and a plot which had me guessing right up until the last pages, this is a must-read. Massively recommended!' - The Bookbag `This exceptional novel of first love and sexual awakenings is set against a backdrop of shocking racism and prejudice. It is incredibly well written as the tense, riveting story seamlessly combines fiction with historical fact.' - Booktrust `Every now and then a Young Adult book comes along that I want to push into every readers hands both young and old and Lies We Tell Ourselves is that book for 2014' - Jess Hearts Books `Talley has mixed two controversial topics together to create a firecracker of a story' - Cheryl M-M's Book Blog *A Goodreads Choice Awards semi-finalist 2014*
