Good Girls Lie

We rated this book:


A student is found hanging from the gates of a prestigious, elite girls’ boarding school where its students’ futures are all but guaranteed. Who is the student, and is it suicide or murder? All eyes are focused on mysterious new student Ash Carr who has just arrived at the Goode School. Receiving a less-than-warm welcome, she is immediately pegged as an outsider, which is fine by Ash because she wants nothing more than to leave her past behind and focus on her studies. However, after she is summoned to attend a secret society, things at the elite school will never be the same as secrets, resentments, and betrayals are revealed.

Author J.T. Ellison’s latest book, Good Girls Lie, is a twisty psychological mystery. Using several timelines and multiple points of view, none of which are reliable, the author lays out the story in a tightly written plot that fans of Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars will enjoy. The boarding school setting is almost another character of the story and one that evokes mystery, where tales of murder and haunted staircases prevail. The first third of the book is a slow burn rather than a page-turner, and while some questions are answered, others remain. After that, the pace picks up considerably but those looking to figure things out by following clues the author leaves will most likely be disappointed since the payoff comes on the last few pages.
