Liar

Ayelet Gundar-Goshen
NZD $22.99

Lies, scandal and uncontrollable consequences - the smart, provocative third novel from the celebrated Ayelet Gundar-Goshen, now in paperback.

If being old meant making up things so you wouldn't be alone, then it really wasn't very different from being seventeen.

Nofar is just an average teenage girl - so average, she's almost invisible. Serving customers ice cream all summer long, she is desperate for some kind of escape. One afternoon, a terrible lie slips from her tongue. And suddenly everyone wants to talk to her: the press, her schoolmates, and the boy upstairs - the only one who knows the truth.

Then Nofar meets Raymonde, an elderly woman whose best friend has just died. Raymonde keeps her friend alive the only way she knows how - by inhabiting her stories. But soon, Raymonde's lies take on a life of their own.

A heart-stopping novel about deception and its consequences, Liar brilliantly explores how far a lie can travel - and how much we are willing to believe.
