But she can't exactly tell the truth, either--not when she's juggling two boyfriends, secretly hating the high school football team everyone else worships, and trying to have the best summer ever. At least Katie has it all under control (sort of). Her biggest secret, what really happened the night Tommy Sullivan is a freak was spray-painted on the junior high gymnasium wall, is safe.

That is, until Tommy comes back to town. Katie is sure he's going to ruin all her plans, and she'll do anything to hang on to her perfect existence. Even if it means telling more lies. Even if, now that Tommy's around, she's actually--truthfully--having the time of her life.

I was so embarrassed by the cover (and back cover) I used a sheet of loose leaf to make a cover to cover it. It was so good!

This book ended up being better than I expected, it showed different aspects of Katie's life. It showed her friend problems, family problems and boy troubles. Don't be scared about the title! It's supposed to be from lier lier pants on fire, before I read it I was worried it meant something else...

I loved this book! i did not think it was going to be that good before reading it, but it was definatly worth it! It is a very quick read, and a good story line!

This was good, but definitely not one of my favorites from Meg Cabot. If you liked this book, or want to give Meg another try, I suggest reading the Mediator series, and her 1-800-Where-R-You books (that series starts with When Lightning Strikes.).

This is the first book I read from Cabot and this is my all time favorite. I've read it over and over again, but it never gets old.

I really enjoyed reading this book the first time and now I love to read it more than once. In the beggining the main charecter is seen as the typical high school senior in a high profile clique until she meets a friend from her past and thats when the story becomes interesting. I deffinetly reccomed anyone interested in these topics to read this book :)

This wasn't one of my favourite books by Meg Cabot. I found the story hard to get into, and everything seemed quickly wrapped up at the end. It is kind of entertaining once you get into the story. I'd suggest reading other books by Meg Cabot if you weren't a fan of this one.

Katie Ellison is a liar. She lies to her boyfriend to make out with another boy, she lies to her friends and family to pacify them and she has lied to the town for years over a horrible secret that begins to unravel when the irresistable Tommy Sullivan comes back to town.
