    35 starsLizzie Lovett was the IT girl of Hawthorne Creely's high school Emphasis on was “Lizzie and her boyfriend were camping and this morning he woke up and she was gone”Silence descended on the kitchen I decided to say what all of us were certainly thinking “Probably the most incredible part of the story is that Lizzie Lovett went camping” Hawthorne is the weird kid in high school She's constantly saying or doing the wrong thing often with hilarious results Lizzie Lovett disappeared and everyone was all “How can someone like Lizzie be missing?” and I was like “Who cares?” A few days laterit was still kinda boring but not totally boring because I’d never known a dead person before She's hated and admired Lizzie from afar ever since freshman year Now that Hawthorne's a senior and Lizzie long since graduated Hawthorne thought she was free That is until the girl went missing The woods had swallowed Lizzie's secrets She had lived and she had died and now there was no trace of her The prevailing theory is that Lizzie died somehow in the woods but without a body or even a trace no one can know for sure what happenedHawthorne having spent the last four years hating Lizzie decides to figure out what happened on her own After all Lizzie dazzled just about everyone and this mystery is probably the most interesting thing that ever happened Don't confuse being popular with being interesting Soon Hawthorne finds herself neck deep in the mystery with little hope of breaking free But I always wondered if she could turn her feelings off like a switch how much was she hiding from us? This one was a pendulum swing for me I loved it I hated it I loved it again back and forth constantly I loved Hawthorne's inane chatter like the first uote in this review I found her to be hilarious fresh and undoubtedly uniue She's a shining beacon of light in a swarm of emo angst protagonist smogBUT and this is a big BUT she went too far too often so what would've been hilarious morphed into a giant cringe fest Like when Hawthorne picks up the idea that Lizzie is a werewolf I hoped we’d find something telling Maybe an essay titled “Where I’d Go if I Ever Turned into a Werewolf” As an errant thought this is hilarious As the focus for the latter half of the book not so much I lived in a world with practical peopleWhere were the other people like me? Locked up probably Getting called crazy I think if Hawthorne was younger ie freshman or eighth grade then some of her off the wall behavior wouldn't have seemed so out of place At that age you're transitioning between childhood and adulthood so I think that it makes sense for the behavior to blur the linesOther than the cringy moments I really enjoyed this one Though I do have to admit the title and description felt a little misleading Lizzie wasn't as much of a liar as I thought she was and the description makes it sound like Hawthorne is working with the police or gets herself involved in some other professional matter Instead Lizzie lies only sometimes and Hawthorne just hangs out at the fringes of the investigation Maybe that's where I went wrong before Some riddles weren't meant to be solved Audiobook CommentsRead by Jessica Almasy She was an absolutely fabulous reader she breathed life into such a uirky character Loved itYouTube | Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading

    My reviews can also be seen at she first hears the news that local girl Lizzie Lovett is missing Seventeen year old Hawthorn Thorny Creely doesn't really pay it much attention To be honest she doesn't really care She's not trying to be cold she's just pretty sure it isn't true Hawthorn is positive that bad things don’t happen to girls like Lizzie LovettBut she's wrongWhen she realizes that Lizzie is in fact missing something changes in Hawthorn She goes from not caring and ends up becoming obsessed with uncovering the truth behind Lizzie's disappearance She immerses herself in everything Lizzie She gets a job at the restaurant Lizzie worked at and even starts hanging out with Lizzie's boyfriend No one understands why she's doing this and I don't think she's really sure herself But something about Lizzie's disappearance becomes personal for herHawthorn doesn't have a lot of friends and has dubbed herself unlovable Her older brother Rush had a lot of friends and loved high school Hawthorn prefers to be by herself a lot of the timeat least that's what she says She does have one close friend in Emily Although even Emily seems to have a hard time with Hawthorne's personality sometimesThere are many theories going around about Lizzie’s disappearance Hawthorn has some of her own VERY bizarre theories She even manages to get Lizzie’s boyfriend twenty five year old Enzo Calvetti to help her with her searches But should she be hanging around Enzo? I was a bit surprised that her parents were okay with her hanging out with him Because of the age difference and the fact that he was the last person to see Lizzie aliveHawthorn is a very uniue character She can be annoying but she's also witty with a wild imagination and some of the best one liners ever She speaks her mind often without thinking it through The words had come out of my mouth without getting permission from my brain Her inner dialogue was hilarious When someone upsets her she remembers what her mother told her about not wishing for things that you really didn't want to happen like wishing someone dead So her curses were never horrible but they were ALWAYS hilarious I wished someone would replace Mychelle's fancy shampoo with a drugstore brand I wished she would suddenly forget the name of her five favorite songs I wished every time she microwaved a frozen burrito the center would stay cold I wished her mascara would dry out after she'd only done one eye I enjoyed many of the supporting characters too Sundog with his caravan that lived in tents on the front lawn along with their dog Timothy Leary I loved her brother Rush and his best friend Connor So why are you sitting here like the rest of The Breakfast Club went out partying and forgot to take you along? As Hawthorn continues her search for the truth about what happened to Lizzie she may end up finding her own truth as wellThere are uite a few themes covered in this book mental health issues bullying loneliness self esteem obsession relationships among othersThe Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett was a uick and easy YA read The characters were uniue and original and they all added something to the story I did find it was uite different from what I expected after reading the book blurb There were also a few parts of the plot that seemed to come out of left field But while it wasn't uite what I was expecting I still found it entertainingI enjoyed this book and I look forward to reading from Chelsea SedotiThank you NetGalley Sourcebooks Fire and Chelsea Sedoti for providing an advanced copy of this book for me to read in exchange for my honest review

    2 StarsOverview This book is marketed as a young adult mystery and the blurb claims Hawthorn Creely “inserts herself into the investigation of missing person Lizzie Lovett” I think this is misleading as that’s not the direction the book goes in Instead of trying to find Lizzie or doing any investigating whatsoever Hawthorn who is an imaginative sort of person spends her time coming up with fantastical ideas about what might have happened to Lizzie And she does so while growing closer to the missing Lizzie Lovett’s much older boyfriend I received an ARC of this through Netgalley thanks to the publisher for the opportunity Pros Hawthorn’s best friend Emily was one of my favorite characters I could have read a whole book about Emily She was talented and smart while still being somewhat shy Even though she was uieter she wasn’t afraid to speak up for herself—even to her best friend She pointed out when a relationship had become unhealthy for her without bullying or belittling the other party She was an extremely strong character and I would have loved to see of her Though I had problems with her character Hawthorn had a very uniue voice I think she really came into her own about half way through the novel and I wish her characterization had been that strong from the beginning While she seems very all over the place in the first few chapters she slowly reveals herself to be an imaginative and outspoken force of nature I can't say I've ever read a book narrated by a character like her Cons By far my biggest problem was this couldn’t seem to establish a tone Hawthorn would be cynical and mean but also romanticize everything It wanted to be mysterious and hint at how ‘unreliable’ the narration was but then also be whimsical and playful It would go from the main character believing in werewolves and discussing “cognitive enlightenment” with a man named Sundog to a supposed to be thrilling chase scene in a creepy abandoned house I think the story would have worked if it was simply a uirky girl who gets caught up in the fantastic nature of a missing persons case or a lonely girl who immerses herself completely in the life of a girl who’s gone missing It was two completely different stories with completely different tones and the text spent so much time arguing with itself SO HAWTHORN WAS INSUFFERABLE As I said she had a very uniue voice and I did come to feel for her But she was incredibly self absorbed She spent all her time waxing poetic about how misunderstood she was and how she had no friends when she was downright mean and seems to only consider herself For example She’s late to class for no reason and when her teacher uestions her she tells him “Yeah there’s a reason Lizzie Lovett disappeared this morning and my brother is totally freaked out about it so I was trying to comfort him” Not only is this incredibly calloused towards the people in the classroom who knew Lizzie but Hawthorn had just been MAKING FUN of her brother Tells all of Lizzie’s distraught friends and family that they shouldn’t worry because Lizzie has just BECOME A WEREWOLF This is played off as cute and silly but it was just incredibly insensitive “Wow I’m being called sloppy by a girl who’s gotten wasted at parties and spread her legs for half the football team since eight grade” NO NO NO Don’t whine about how awful people treat you and then turn around be a slut shaming vindictive bully yourself “These dances exist just to torture me” rolls eyes Yes Hawthorne Because it’s all about you Is upset when her best friend asks for some space because the relationship isn’t healthy any Hawthorn never apologizes and instead just whines about how now she has no friends “I’m not like most people If I had to read the words ‘Lizzie Lovett’ one time I understood her name was being used almost as a title but every time they spoke of the girl they used her first and last name It was used a little too freuently and just got repetitive There was a somewhat random addition of a caravan of stereotypical hippies halfway through this book Yes Really Slight spoilers If you’re going to mention suicide halfway through your book without prompting or warning maaaaybe discuss it in nuanced or somewhat respectful way Instead of using it as a plot point to try to make the MC likeable In Conclusion This had a lot of potential but the main character was very difficult—despite the uniue voice The tone of the book kept shifting and it’s overall very different than advertised

    SPOILER FREE REVIEWOkay I had to take a few days before I reviewed this one because it sort of destroyed me emotionally This is one of the best YA novels I have ever read Seriously The writing is effortless the dialogue completely natural It is an exploration of what it is like to be the sort of person who doesn't fit in Someone who is creative imaginative someone who wants to see magic in the world someone who yearns for belonging someone who can never uite be normalI'm not gonna liethis book reminded me of THE CATCHER IN THE RYE in all the best ways In fact I would go so far as to call it a modern even honest CATCHER The world seems split on Holden Caulfield a lot of people hate his ever bitching ever judging view of the world I personally love Holden But Hawthorn Creely is not Holden Caulfield While she has a keen observant sensitive view of the world that allows her to see the flaws bullshit and imperfections that many choose to ignore she admits that she wants to belong And that is EVERYTHING Because don't we all?Hawthorn is impulsive imaginative reckless She wonders what it is like to be Lizzie Lovettshe fixatesshe tries to reconcile the image Lizzie projects with the person she begins to learn about once Lizzie has gone missing And that's the heart of this story it's not a big mystery where clues lead a teenage detective toward solving a missing persons case although you WILL want to keep reading in hopes of finding out WHAT HAPPENED TO LIZZIE? This story is about Hawthorn It is about our perceptions of others It is about what it means to fit in and what it means when you don't and what it means to search for meaning and it is BEAUTIFULI will read every word Chelsea Sedoti ever writes She reached into my soul where there were hurts long forgotten uestions long unanswered and helped me to find a tiny bit of peace I didn't even know I needed Hawthorn broke my heart and put it right back together without smoothing out all the painful memories that come along with self discoveryThis book is beautiful Read it Read all of it I don't think you will be disappointed

    This book THIS BOOK I love it so much I want to eat it At this moment having just finished it I feel like I have never before loved a book as much as I love this book Hawthorn Creely is this obnoxious endearing brilliantly voicey teen who wants there to be to the world than what she sees every day Because the world she sees is hard And lonely Chelsea doesn't hit you over the head with Hawthorn's I so desperately want to hug her loneliness though Instead she delivers it subtly in these sock you in the gut lines LikeBut really I was most afraid of turning my phone back on and finding out no one had even tried to get ahold of me or A burrito tastes good even if you're eating aloneInstead of facing that hard world Hawthorn obsesses about the disappearance of Lizzie Lovett losing herself in a ridiculous theory that she may or may not actually believe And is brilliant and heart breaking and hilarious while doing so Examples Didn't your parents ever tell you opinions should be left to people with brains? and I wanted his ice cream to fall off the cone and onto the pavement on a really hot day I wanted him to read a really great mystery only to find someone had ripped out the end pages where it was solvedThe book positively sings with narrative voice and is full of so many gorgeous lines and I can't recommend it enough Read this book Just read this book

    NOW AVAILABLE In this YA Novel there's a little bit of mystery a bit of teen angst and Hawthorn Creely daughter of Sparrow sister to Rush and whose best friend is Emily In truth Emily is her best friend although I’m not sure the same could be said about Hawthorn being a true best friend to Emily Hawthorn is a girl who believes that she is unlovable She’s lonely she feels alone most of all at school where the pretty girls reign and the boys follow the pretty girls The popular girls the popular boys She’s seventeen and life can be difficult and confusing during those years especially for those who feel invisible most of the time or that they are on the fringe Hawthorn may not always be likeable but she is relatable She would never admit that she wants to go to school dances to parties to be seen She can’t even admit that to herself Everything seems to come so easily to girls like Lizzie Lovett everyone loves her even Rush dated Lizzie Lovett for a while For a time Hawthorn allowed herself to want to be like Lizzie but those days are gone One morning Rush comes downstairs with the news that Lizzie Lovett is missing it’s on the news and he’s beside himself Missing this girl he once dreamed about missing that life he once had those days Hawthorn only had minutes with Lizzie once had dreamed of Lizzie taking her under her wing even But when Lizzie pretended not to know her those dreams were crushed There are people that come and go adding colour adding smaller story lines with so many theories about Lizzie Lovett’s disappearance on top of that all yet the story never gets confusing The main story still belongs to Hawthorn Her struggle to be recognized and ultimately to recognize herself and her true feelingsPub Date 01 Jan 2017 Many thanks to Sourcebooks Fire NetGalley and to author Chelsea Sedoti providing this ARC

    The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett centers around Hawthorne a teen girl who becomes obsessed with solving the mystery of fellow missing teen Lizzie LovettOur protagonist's voice felt very authentic but the storyline was just lacking for me It was very slow and one note; there's not much going on besides this girl trying to follow non existent clues to solve the disappearance of a girl she didn't even know I never cared about Lizzie and couldn't get on board with Hawthorne either; she was bratty her romance was cringy and the supernatural element of this was so unexpected and a waste of timeHonestly I can't even write a longer review because the second I put it down I forgot almost all character names and plot points This was just not at all what I was expecting it to be This copy was provided by the publisher
