Tell Me No Lies - Malorie BlackmanMacmillan, 2001, Paperback.
Condition: Very Good.
Gemma and Mike each have something to hide, and when they meet the electricity that sparks between them leads them both to act uncharacteristically, causing each other pain that they will never forget. As the two misfits each begin to face the ghosts that have haunted them for most of their young lives, the emotional scars of two deeply unhappy children are slowly and painfully revealed as their relationship as pursuer and pursued magnifies the hurt to the point of despair. Powerful, haunting and totally gripping, Tell Me No Lies is an explosive psychological thriller that never compromises, never disappoints and leaves the reader with the uncomfortable and overwhelming impression that there are some problems that can never be completely resolved, but may perhaps become more bearable as time moves on. It is also proof, if proof were needed, that the award-winning Malorie Blackman is a literary force to be reckoned with. (Ages 10 to 13) --Susan Harrison160pp.
