 The Almost Truth by Eileen Cook

Synopsis (Goodreads): Sadie can’t wait to get away from her backwards small town, her delusional mom, her jailbird dad, and the tiny trailer where she was raised…even though leaving those things behind also means leaving Brendan. Sadie wants a better life, and she has been working steadily toward it, one con at a time.

But when Sadie’s mother wipes out Sadie’s savings, her escape plan is suddenly gone. She needs to come up with a lot of cash—and fast—or she’ll be stuck in this town forever.

With Brendan’s help, she devises a plan—the ultimate con—to get the money. But the more lies Sadie spins, the more she starts falling for her own hoax…and perhaps for the wrong boy. Sadie wanted to change her life, but she wasn’t prepared to have it flipped upside down by her own deception. With her future at stake and her heart on the line, suddenly it seems like she has a lot more than just money to lose…

Personal Thoughts: I loved this book. It had a lot of plot twists, turns and surprising events. The pace was good and it didn’t lag anywhere, so I kept on reading more and more to find out what was going to happen next. Sadie was a great character. She has a strong personality and doesn’t let any bumps get in the way of her dreams.
