The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett Book Review

Monday, August 29, 2016

A teenage misfit named Hawthorn Creely inserts herself in the investigation of missing person Lizzie Lovett, who disappeared mysteriously while camping with her boyfriend. Hawthorn doesn't mean to interfere, but she has a pretty crazy theory about what happened to Lizzie. In order to prove it, she decides to immerse herself in Lizzie's life. That includes taking her job... and her boyfriend. It's a huge risk — but it's just what Hawthorn needs to find her own place in the world. (Goodreads)

What did I think?
The summary and title of the book are way more interesting than it actually turned out to be. The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett makes you think that Hawthorn will be finding out all these lies surrounding Lizzie. Instead, this book is more centered on Hawthorn growing up from an extremely self-centered and slightly bizarre teenager to one who is able to accept herself and the world around her. All of the characters are annoying and cliche and the story spent so much time going nowhere. I had to force myself to finish it.
2/5
