It’s time for another #throwbackthursday, and this week we are arguing, I mean talking, about Liar by Justine Larbalestier. (Transcript)
In today’s episode…
Liar by Justine Larbalestier.
Micah Wilkins is a liar, she’ll lie about anything. Not just for personal gain, not just for a good reason, but to see how easily someone falls for the lies that comes easily as breathing. But all that’s behind her now. When her maybe-boyfriend Zachary is found dead, her whole life is thrown under a spotlight. This time, she’s going to tell the whole truth. Well, almost the whole truth, anyway.
