THE ART OF LYING

New York City, a young artist on the rise, and closely held family secrets — what could go wrong? 

Rachel Addison has just turned eighteen and lives on the Upper East Side with her parents. All she wants to do is paint and have an amazing solo gallery show downtown, but her barely-functioning alcoholic mom is acting very weird lately, her dad is never around when she needs him, and then there’s Noah — the handsome older man that appears in her life right when she doesn’t need a distraction. 

When the complications of life get to be too much, Rachel escapes back to her hometown in New Jersey, where she discovers a shocking truth about her birth. This secret turns her life inside out and upside down. Back in the city, she struggles to finish her last painting and deal with the complicated relationship she now has with her parents. To top it all off, Rachel doesn’t even know who she is anymore or what to do with these feelings she has for Noah.  

The Art of Lying is an emotional, but poignant Young Adult coming of age story written by Jennifer Gregson. If you like stories by John Green, Rainbow Rowell, or Julie Murphy then you will love Jennifer’s debut novel about early fame, first love, and family relationships.
