Publisher's Summary

Bloomsbury presents Every Single Lie by Rachel Vincent, read by Lauren Ezzo. 

In this gripping YA novel about social media bullying and half-truths, one girl’s shocking discovery of a dead baby in her high school locker room rocks an entire community. 

Nobody in 16-year-old Beckett’s life seems to be telling the whole story. Her boyfriend Jake keeps hiding texts, which could mean he’s cheating on her. Her father lied about losing his job and so much more before his shocking death. And everyone in school seems to be whispering about her and her family behind her back. 

But none of that compares to the day Beckett finds the body of a newborn baby in a gym bag - Jake’s gym bag - on the floor of her high school locker room. As word leaks out, rumours that Beckett’s the mother take off like wildfire in a town all too ready to believe the worst of her. 

Beckett soon finds herself facing threats and accusations both heartbreaking and dangerous. Nobody believes her side of the story, and as the police investigation unfolds, she discovers that everyone has a secret to hide and the truth could alter everything she thought she knew. 

A gripping thriller set in a small Southern community, Every Single Lie is a jaw-dropping, twisty must-listen for fans of Sadie.

Critic Reviews

"Raw, real, and utterly gripping, Every Single Lie is part page-turning mystery, part heart-rending character study. A staggering portrait of family trauma and resilience in small-town America." (Jennifer Lynn Barnes, author of The Naturals)

"A carefully detailed portrait of a fraying family, a scathing look at small-town rumors, and a blunt critique of social media’s rapid, rabid tendencies." (Kirkus Reviews)

I could not let myself go to sleep

without finishing this book. It is so very compelling in one of the most painful ways. This story touches on the best and worst parts of community; the best and worst parts of family; the best and worst parts of the internet and how people use it. This book kept its claws in claws in my heart in the very best way.

Wow

I sped this one up and finished it in one night because I was so hooked. Definitely original and with a lot of unexpected twists and turns. Plenty of lessons to be had here. I wasn’t sure what to expect since it was teens. Not sure this subject matter is fit for teens but is definitely a cautionary tale. Very sad and lots of suspense.

A favorite

When Beckett finds a dead baby in the school locker room, people assume it’s hers. She becomes the target of on and offline harassment. Beckett is determined to discover the identity of the mother, no matter how many people she alienates.

EVERY SINGLE LIE shines from start to finish. I loved Beckett’s less than perfect assertiveness. Though she’s victimized, this never a victim.

Rachel Vincent is an amazing writer, capturing Beckett’s strength and vulnerability. She’s highly imperfect, unique and nothing about her is tropish. The secondary characters were fully fleshed out, also unique flawed characters.

The story of who’s the mom is a mystery that I guessed early on, but it didn’t detract from my enjoyment because beneath the whodunit is a story of family, grief, addiction, depression and finding one’s way in the world.

EVERY SINGLE LIE had all the feels of my favorite YA books. I knew it was something special from the first chapter (once I figured out a Slim Jim wasn’t salami sold situated by the potato chips sold in gas stations). I know it’ll be a reread and that I’ll enjoy it just as much the second and third go-arounds.
