- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2014 May #2
So many lies. When her girlfriend Swanee dies suddenly, Alix is devastated to discover that Swanee has been secretly dating another girl, Liana. For complex reasons, Alix feels it is her responsibility to tell Liana of Swanee's death. But in so doing, she creates a web of lies that will come to haunt her as the girls meet and bond over their mutual experience of betrayal. The bond quickly turns into friendship and then into love. Alix knows she must finally tell Liana the truth, but will it strengthen their relationship or destroy it? Peters has written another insightful, absorbing novel of relationships that is both emotionally and intellectually satisfying. Alix and Liana are multidimensional characters with whom readers will identify and empathize. Peters' thematic treatment of lies and truth is nicely realized and never pedantic. This will have widespread appeal to both gay and straight readers and is another strong offering from a well-established, popular author. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
