Unbecoming by Rebecca Scherm
This well-written debut novel will take you into the world of a pathological liar. From the very first sentence we know that "Julie" has a problem with telling the truth. Her real name isn't even Julie, and every word that comes out of her mouth is a lie. Having had been a liar her entire life, she finds deceiving people to be quite easy. "Julie" has fled her small town of Garland, Tennessee and is now hiding out in Paris. Her only contact with her old life is from a hometown website where she searches for news on two boys that are soon to be released from prison. We don't yet know what they did, but one thing is for sure: We know that "Julie" had something to do with it. If you like psychologically-themed novels, this one will keep you turning the pages! Read On!
