|Liar, Liar by Gary Paulsen|
If you ask me, people who say honesty is the
best policy are just terrible liars.
Kevin has a big talent. Some might call it
compulsive lying. He calls it common sense.
Kev doesn't mean to cause trouble by lying all
the time; he's just trying to make everything easier
for everyone (and himself). And, of course, a
few harmless, um, falsehoods are crucial to his
plan to convince Tina that he's the perfect
boyfriend for her.
In Gary Paulsen's irresistible and chaotic
comedy, Kevin's lies spiral out of control
until he's faced with the need to do the
unthinkable: to tell the truth.
