Everybody knows, nobody’s talking… Seventeen year-old Skylar Thompson is being questioned by the police. Her boyfriend Jimmy stands accused of brutally assaulting two young El Salvadoran immigrants from a neighboring town, and she's the prime witness. Skylar is keeping quiet about what she's seen, but how long can she keep it up? Jimmy was her savior. When her mother died, he was the only person who made her feel safe, protected from the world. But when she begins to appreciate the enormity of what has happened, especially when Carlos Cortez, the victim's brother, steps up to demand justice, she starts to have second thoughts about protecting him. Jimmy's accomplice, Sean, is facing his own moral quandary. He's out on bail and has been offered a plea in exchange for testifying against Jimmy. Sean must decide whether or not to turn on his friend in order to save himself. But most importantly, both must figure out why they followed someone like Jimmy—someone who bullied people and advocated violence against others—in the first place.
Why waiting for Lie?
There are a lot of new books sets on my eyes but this one stand out. I don't mean that I don't like the rest of it but this caught my attention. I am not entirely sure if this book is a mystery-thriller or something, I can only say that it has a very interesting summary. And it really get on my taste. Well... I need to waiting a couple of months but I am sure this would be a great read! Can't wait for it! :]
