This week we read Lies My Girlfriend Told Me by Julie Anne Peters, a tale of love, deception and baffling cellphone habits. When Alix's girlfriend Swanee dies, Alix realises she may not have known Swanee at all. Meanwhile, we realise we have no idea how to pronounce Swanee's name. That aside, we're left to contemplate just how much plot is actually in this book. Also, why some parts worked and some really didn't. And that's before we get to whether the main character was actually the best choice for main character at all... It's not all bad though. Once we dust away the chaff, there's a whole lot of wheat. And by 'wheat' we mean 'adorable girls in love', obviously.
