What happens when you find out the person you thought you knew was lying to you the whole time? When her girlfriend Swanee dies suddenly from cardiac arrest, Alix comes to discover that Swanee had another girlfriend and another life. I've always been a huge fan of Julie Anne Peters, and it's because her characters don't always fall into the typical tropes and pitfalls that come with not only young-adult fiction, but LGBT fiction specifically. Lies My Girlfriend Told Me is no different, and is well worth the read. --STAFF PICKS BY HEATHER H.
