Publisher's Summary

When Alix's charismatic girlfriend, Swanee, dies from sudden cardiac arrest, Alix is overcome with despair. As she searches Swanee's room for mementos of their relationship, she finds Swanee's cell phone, pinging with dozens of texts sent from a mysterious contact, L.T. The most recent text reads: "Please tell me what I did. Please, Swan. Te amo. I love you." Shocked and betrayed, Alix learns that Swanee has been leading a double life - secretly dating a girl named Liana the entire time she's been with Alix. Alix texts Liana from Swanee's phone, pretending to be Swanee in order to gather information before finally meeting face-to-face to break the news.
Brought together by Swanee's lies, Alix and Liana become closer than they'd thought possible. But Alix is still hiding the truth from Liana. Alix knows what it feels like to be lied to - but will coming clean to Liana mean losing her, too?

I liked it

What made the experience of listening to Lies My Girlfriend Told Me the most enjoyable?

The plot line is probably the best part. Pretty touching. Moving? I'm not sure what the exact right word is to use but I kind of felt something.

What other book might you compare Lies My Girlfriend Told Me to and why?

I don't think I would exactly compare it to other books but if I had to make a reach (within my scope of knowledge) I might compare it to Hood by Emma Donoghue. It's similar in major plot themes, sorta kinda???

Have you listened to any of Christine Lakin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, I haven't. I am not jazzed about this one though. Her voice is just not my style. I appreciate her hard work though!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

If I was the crying sort maybe I would have? I'm basically dead inside though so don't go by me. This is a moving story.

The story is more steered to younger teenagers. it is good but there are parts that are dry.
