Coming April 16, 2019 from Imprint (Macmillan):
Seventeen-year-old Fiona never expected to become best friends with the girl who randomly got into her car one day after school and told her to drive. She definitely never expected that less than a year later, a raging end-of-summer party she didn’t even want to be at would be the last place she ever saw Trixie. She tells everyone she doesn’t remember much about that night, because the little details she does remember don’t mean anything.
But when the police find what Trixie left at the beach and her disappearance is ruled a suicide, Fiona is the only one who believes Trixie isn’t actually dead—and she’s determined to find out why she wants everyone to think she is. Desperate to uncover the truth, she turns to Jasper, Trixie’s former friend-with-benefits and the only other person who knew her at all, to piece together the dead-end trail of a girl who doesn’t want to be found. But the closer Fiona gets to discovering what happened—and the closer she gets to Jasper—she’s confronted with the reality that Trixie got into her car that day for a reason, and there was nothing random about it.
And the little details—the ones Fiona thought meant nothing—are the only clues Trixie left behind, leading to the unlikeliest place of all. Because the girl Fiona knew better than anyone may have been a carefully constructed lie, and she might have been waiting to disappear the entire time.
L. E. Flynn’s Last Girl Lied To is a gripping, bold contemporary YA thriller that questions friendship, self-identity, and self-worth.
