4 Stars

Truth Beneath the Lies by Amanda Searcy was a fascinating and captivating novel that hooked me from the beginning, and held my attention hostage until I turned the very last page. I was not expecting that I would love this book as much as I did - and that made reading this book so much more enjoyable.

I really liked both Kayla and Betsy, and how they grew individually throughout the novel. They were both relatable characters that you grow to love and become emotionally invested with.

I would highly recommend this book if you are a fan of YA mystery novels, because this one will hold your attention until the very end.
