On the English Channel island of Guernsey, a teenage girl's Mean Girls-like experience pushes her to murder her best friend in a scandal, she will discover, that mirrors her uncle's previously unknown story from the days of the island's Nazi occupation during WWII. Told through the voices of fifteen-year-old Cat Rozier and her long-dead Uncle Charlie--known to Cat only by the audio recordings he left behind--The Book of Lies lucidly illuminates the interior lives of a scorned modern girl with attitude and a defiant, faded man. With echoes of Nicole Krauss's The History of Love and Jennifer McMahon's Promise Not to Tell, Mary Horlock's stunning debut novel is an unforgettable exploration of aspiration, anguish, and rebellion.

This book is one that everybody should read, as it beautifully describes teenage angst in a contemporary setting (1985) and one during the occupation of the Channel Islands in the 1940's. I grew quite fond of both characters and found that the author's description of the turmoil of emotions was spot on. The title says it all: every character lies for one reason or another.
