Publisher's Summary

New town. New school. Same lies.

This is my senior year, and not only have my parents moved me to a new place where I know nothing and no one, they are determined to make me fall in line with the life they want me to have.

Not the life that I want. But what fits perfectly into their world.

I'm looking for any possible way to escape this prison and leave them behind. Which has been harder than I thought.

An opportunity to escape appears. And I'm going to take it. I'm going to use four so-called perfect guys in this new town to make it happen. The ones that have it all, or so everyone thinks.

And they're going to be my ticket out.

Ugh. No Just No. WASTE OF A CREDIT.

Okay, I like to think I’m an a professional listener at this point. I like didn’t get past the first chapter. WHY JUST WHY HAVE A MALE NARRATER & NOT USE HIM. Ugh. So the story could be interesting, I don’t know.
The female was talking for the guys and she made them sound like TODDLER BOYS. What is the purpose of having Chris Chambers as one of the narrators and letting the female do both parts. I couldn’t get past it. Waste of a Credit

Pretty lies



Pretty Lies was an outstanding first book in a new series. I love plots like this, where the actual relationship development starts with the characters being friends first. This is not an instalove-story, the author really builds the atmosphere and characters first and this is exactly how I like my books. While this book flowed at a steady, slower pace, it never felt like it was boring. The emphasis was on Astrid's character and the friendship she slowly develops with each boy, as well as some sneak peeks into their backgrounds. 


Astrid is a very layered character. She has to keep up pretenses being raised by very conservative parents. She comes across as timid and sheltered at times, but at other moments she shows her strength. She is determined to break free from the life her parents have planned out for her and shows she has a backbone when necessary. I'm really curious to what will happen after this book! 


I loved the audio-narration too. The female narrator really nailed Astrid's personality in the intonation she used.

Loved this book!

I had read the book before, but the narrators really brought the characters to life. I can't wait to hear more.

I really liked it

This book was great it’s what I would say is like a regular,slightly cliche, but lovable book. The narrators were nice, although I do wish I heard the guys voice more but the lady narrator carried just fine though.


But, yeah I really liked the story, Astrid wasn’t actually that annoying; like most FMC are. She had a rough family, but they all did which surprisingly wasn’t an extreme bonding point. That was something I liked. They liked each other because of the way they met and then got to know each other more.
But this seems kinda pointless, I don’t feel like writing any more ;but yeah def recommend
