Review: Between the Lies by Cathy MacPhail

Between the Lies by Cathy MacPhail

Between the Lies definitely kept me on my toes. In this book a high school student is missing, and no one knows where she is, but another girl receives a text message saying she wants to come home. Thus begins a whirlwind of twists and turns. The narration flips between the outcast girl receiving the mysterious texts and the popular girl who’s gone missing, and I honestly didn’t know who to trust.

This book takes place in Ireland, so that was a fun aspect. And it’s a pretty quick read, but in the end it didn’t stand out too much in my mind. I was reading¬†The Hanging Girl at the same time, which has kind of a similar plot.

If you’re a fan of dark stories or unreliable narrators, you may want to check out this book, but otherwise, I think you can pass.

Rating: 3 Stars

Disclosure: I received this book for free from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This fact does not in any way impact my thoughts/feelings about the book.
