Here at Penguin Teen, it is our duty to bring you books that will shock, bamboozle, and thrill you to the last chapter. So here are four books that might just outsmart even the best of us, you clever reader you.
Welcome to your your next twisty, unputdownable thriller. Lies You Never Told Me follows four teens with dangerous secrets caught in the midst of scandal, shocking twists, and a jaw-dropping ending you’ll never see coming. Basically, think Pretty Little Liars, Big Little Lies, One of Us Is Lying…or other books that have to do with lots and lots of lies. (Are you sensing a pattern here?)
People Like Us is a sharp psychological thriller that will seduce, mislead, and finally…betray you.
Kay Donovan may have skeletons in her closet, but the past is past, and she’s reinvented herself entirely. But when a girl’s body is found in the lake, Kay’s carefully constructed life begins to topple. The dead girl has left Kay a computer-coded scavenger hunt, which, as it unravels, begins to implicate suspect after suspect, until Kay herself is in the crosshairs of a murder investigation. But if Kay’s finally backed into a corner, she’ll do what it takes to survive. Because at Bates Academy, the truth is something you make…not something that happened.

Because for all that her parents claim to be doing what’s best for her, Ella knows there is something going on that they’re not divulging, and she is determined to find out what.
The Truth and Lies of Ella Black is just what it sounds like: lots of truths, lots of lies. Who’s to say which is which?
