Summary (from Goodreads):
Sadie Kingston, is a girl living in the aftermath. A year after surviving a car accident that killed her friend Trent and left her body and face scarred, she can’t move forward. The only person who seems to understand her is Trent’s brother, Max.

As Sadie begins to fall for Max, she's unsure if she is truly healed enough to be with him — even if Max is able to look at her scars and not shy away. But when the truth about the accident and subsequent events comes to light, Sadie has to decide if she can embrace the future or if she'll always be trapped in the past.

Courtney Stevens is an author who is going on my auto-buy list. Her books blow my away with their raw emotion and original characters. THE LIES ABOUT TRUTH is her sophomore book and is absolutely beautiful to read.

It was heartbreaking to see the aftermath of an accident that involved 5 friends where only 4 walked away from it. Stevens does a great job showcasing the emotional upheaval of such a tragedy while offering a glimmer of hope that these characters, told by Sadie's perspective, will be OK at the end.

I love Sadie. She was a tad rambly at time, but it was easy to slide into her head and understand what was driving her. I loved that her parents were so supportive and her relationship with Max.

The only downside was this book could have been 50 pages shorter and wrapped up a little more quickly, but other than that, this is a poignant and tumultuous story of loss, love and redemption.
