With her balance evaporating, one small push could bring Sara crashing down HmmmLittle Black Lies is an awesome book I loved it It had all the good qualit Tish Cohen s books may be labeled young adult, but I find her work to be easily sophisticated enough for adult reading certainly for those of us who are parents and may want to delve deeper into the minds of our youth Cohen s understanding of those young minds is uncanny I ve been a fan since my introduction to Cohen about a year ago, reading Inside Out Girl, and in fact, was inspired to learn and so interviewed her as feature author for The Smoking Poet at that time Reading Little Black Lies, impossible to do slowly, I remember why Like that previous novel, this one, too, examines a broken and painfully dysfunctional family from the perspective of a teenager Little Black Lies is the story of Sara Black in her freshman year at Anton High School, a school for the smart and the privileged Sara is indeed very smart in terms of school work, but she is anything but privileged She Black Is Tiptoeing Across A Fraying Tightrope As The New Eleventh Grader At Anton High The Most Elite Public School In The Country She Sticks Out Like An Old VW Bus In A Parking Lot Full Of Shiny BMWs But Being The New Kid Also Brings A Certain Advantageous AnonymityIn Anton High S World Of Privilege, Intelligence, And Wealth, Sara Can Escape Her Family S Tarnished Past And Become Whomever She Wants And What Trailer ↠´ Little Black Lies PDF by È Tish Cohen S The Harm In Telling A Few Little Black Lies When It Can Lead To Popularity That Is, Until Another It Girl At Anton Becomes Jealous Of Sara S Social Climbing With Her Balance Evaporating, One Small Push Could Bring Sara Crashing Down AMAZING I loved this book, this is my type of book High School drama and life problems.

Crimes and Deceit Columbine and Little Black LiesTransitioning between reading books can be difficult, especially when moving from something intensely dark and thick with facts to a far lighter read, such as a young adult YA book with a partially pink cover Or, you may be surprised by their connective tissue.
This week I transitioned from Columbine by Dave Cullen, a deeply disturbing analysis of teenage killers Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, to Little Black Lies by Tish Cohen, an engrossing and ultimately heartening YA novel about Sara Black, a janitor s daughter at a high powered high school who tells damning lies to keep from being killed socially.

This is one of those wanting to be part of the popular crowd stories, with consequences Of course the girl she wants to be friends with most, Carling, is also the prettiest and meanest Of course one of the others Izzie will feel threatened and discover Sara s lies And of course Sara will do something stupid to cover for her lies What I liked is that the consequence of all this is real there s no last minute saving Sara scuttles her future for stupid reasons, and she s stuck with that On the other hand, she does in the end get The Guy, so perhaps things ar
