Goode girls don’t lie…
Perched atop a hill in the tiny town of Marchburg, Virginia, The Goode School is a prestigious prep school known as a Silent Ivy. The boarding school of choice for daughters of the rich and influential, it accepts only the best and the brightest. Its elite status, long-held traditions and honor code are ideal for preparing exceptional young women for brilliant futures at Ivy League universities and beyond. But a stranger has come to Goode, and this ivy has turned poisonous.
In a world where appearances are everything, as long as students pretend to follow the rules, no one questions the cruelties of the secret societies or the dubious behavior of the privileged young women who expect to get away with murder. But when a popular student is found dead, the truth cannot be ignored. Rumors suggest she was struggling with a secret that drove her to suicide.
But look closely…because there are truths and there are lies, and then there is everything that really happened.
J.T. Ellison’s pulse-pounding new novel examines the tenuous bonds of friendship, the power of lies and the desperate lengths people will go to protect their secrets.
Good Girls Lie by J.T. Ellison is a difficult novel to get into. I could not connect with characters. I struggled with knowing who the main protagonists were. The beginning was so slow, I wanted to skip halfway through the novel just to see if it was better. I was so disappointed with this book. It was frustrating. I know J.T. Ellison can write well. This novel was just not up to her normal high standards. The topics issued in this book sounded good-reminded me of Pretty Little Liars. A lot of the content was geared for YA but it was so dark it should be for those 18+. I am not judging the book by the topics it brought. I was so curious to read about a prep all girls school and see what secrets were hidden. Yet, as I read it, I was like-nope, forget it. My attention span said this isn’t worth reading. Again, I was upset that this was not as good as it sounded or should have been.
