Why Would I Lie?

Viveca North works harder and smarter — and it'll all be worth it when she's named valedictorian and granted admission to her dream school, the elite Everett College. All her sacrifices are finally about to pay off. That is, unless the mysterious new guy at school, Jamison Sharpe, steals valedictorian out from under her. Jamison is popular, charming, and funny, and school comes easily to him. Viveca knows he can't really be all that he seems, but everyone completely dismisses her concerns.

Soon, Viveca is obsessed with proving that Jamison is a fraud. But the deeper she gets into uncovering what she believes to be a web of lies and deceit, the closer her dreams come to unraveling once and for all. Is the school golden boy really lying, or is she as paranoid as everyone thinks? In this suspenseful, ripped-from-the-headlines psychological thriller Adi Rule weaves the unforgettable story of a girl who refuses to be silenced, and who won't back down from what she knows she deserves.

Description

"Jamison’s hard to hate and quickly wins over all her classmates with his glamorous and exotic stories. However, Viveca can’t help but compare him to her dad, a pathological liar. She’s also eerily reminded of her past: In seventh grade she suffered a breakdown and made baseless accusations of cheating against another girl.... Viveca’s fixation on her grades at the expense of genuine passion or intrinsic interest, all while pushing away friendships, delivers a nuanced depiction of burnout.... An entertaining story about the dangers of obsession." — Kirkus Reviews
