Katie Ellison is not a liar.
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.
This was a hilarious book! And I utterly disagree with the statement that Katie Ellison is not a liar, because that's exactly what she is for the majority of the book. Before situations teach and encourage her to tell the truth!
I don't blame her for not liking quahogs, because they sound really gross! And that she doesn't like the football team, well, I don't like sports for anything other then hanging out with your friends, playing it. Having it organized, not cool!
And then there's her boyfriends, and the pageant thing. That she was juggling the two guys, and then Tommy comes around, that's one thing. Then dealing with the pageant and the lies that she's used, it was just a lot coming together against her!
This was a really fantastic, funny book, just a great Meg Cabot book!
