"The first time Lou meets mysterious Christian, she knows he is The One. But Christian is hiding a terrible secret. Why does he clam up every time Lou asks about his past? Why doesn’t he have any family photos, and why does he dye his blond hair black? When Christian’s house goes up in flames, his tires are slashed, and he flees for his life, Lou insists on going with him. But as Christian’s secret is unveiled in front of the whole world, it seems everything he’s ever told Lou is a lie. Can what the media are saying about him really be true? Should Lou trust him? Or is she in grave danger? And what if their accidental meeting wasn’t an accident at all...?"
Another quick review from me. Because this month of November is killing me. Very quickly, and I swear that I have little to no time to read. I didn't expect this month... to be like this.
First step to reading this book: naturally assume that Lou is a very unreliable narrator. Because Lou is very unreliable. Just a warning for all of you.
Little White Lies is not really full of little white lies. It is more full of dangerous lies and even more dangerous truths. Lou is hiding from her past, and Christian is hiding from his past, too. They are both two people with lies that have more in common than what Christian would believe or originally think. Lou, of course...
Oh, right. Spoilers. It is way too easy for me to slip up.
The plot is whirling, but it is very unpredictable. I have no idea what's going on, and that is exactly how Lou wants to readers to think. She is deliciously manipulative, but unlike a person with a cold heart, she still believes in the best of people. Well, most of the time.
The mystery and its details are slowly unraveled, and though it doesn't revealed fluidly, the circumstances of a certain person's death is shady enough to draw me in.
The ending... Wow. Now, that is a satisfying part.
Overall, Little White Lies is an intriguing story of a girl who is trying to obtain revenge. She is definitely good at the beginning of the story, but once she meets the boy... Well, it is a bit hard to not like him. To not like Christian. This is definitely for those who love unreliable narrators, a curious mystery, and a HEA.
