Read an Excerpt

Little White Lies YOU CALL THIS A WELCOME?
I’D BEEN BACK ON THE CANTERWOOD CREST Academy campus for an hour and I already felt trapped. Not a feeling I’d imagined experiencing on my first day of eighth grade.

But it was true. If I left my dorm, I could get caught between Jacob—my ex–almost-boyfriend who suddenly wanted me back—and Eric—my amazing boyfriend who still didn’t know that Jacob had confessed his feelings to me the day before summer break.

I sat at the edge of my still-unmade bed and took a deep breath, wanting to stay in the safety of my room. I wished my BFF and roommate, Paige Parker, would hurry through her parental good-byes. I needed girl advice stat!

I considered the possibilities:

Out There—I might run into Jacob. That was not good. But I also wanted to see Eric, and with the “no boys allowed in Winchester Hall—ever!” rule, running into him here was highly unlikely. Unless he wanted to risk death by Livvie, my dorm monitor.

Plus, even though I didn’t want to leave, I kind of had to. My riding coach, Mr. Conner, was holding a team meeting at the stable in half an hour. I couldn’t risk being late—it was the first meeting for the Youth Equestrian National Team. After spending most of my summer riding at YENT camp, there was no way I could be late to the first meeting.

I stepped around my matching pink suitcases and checked my reflection in the full-length mirror, wanting to look pretty but casual when I saw Eric for the first time since before summer vacay. I ran my fingers through my light brown hair and flicked a stray eyelash off my cheek. A coat of Cherry Blossom gloss was all I needed—it was so hot outside that any more makeup would run.

I peeled off the wrinkled shirt I’d worn on the two-hour drive from home and pulled a new one from my open suitcase. The cotton-candy pink “I New York” baby tee looked cute with my jean skirt. I’d gotten the T-shirt when I spent a couple of weeks this summer in NYC with Paige.

I smiled as I looked around our room—glad that we’d gotten approval to be roommates again in our familiar seventh-grade dorm room. Despite my worry about running into Jacob, I was beginning to feel better about being here.

Going 2 the stbl 4 mtg. U? I texted Eric.

I pulled on my paddock boots and glanced at my laptop. Just one quick check for any school announcements, I told myself.

Zero new messages.

The mouse hovered over my “save these!!” folder. After a moment’s hesitation, I clicked on the message I’d been staring at all summer long. From: Jacob Schwartz. Subject: Sasha, please read. 6/27. 7:46 p.m.

There was no reason to open that e-mail. None. I should have deleted it the second I’d gotten it this summer. After all, I had a boyfriend. Only horrible girlfriends saved e-mails from other guys—especially other guys currently dating their BFFs. What was wrong with me? But instead of erasing the message, I opened it and read it for the thousandth time.

Sasha,
I had to try again to tell you how sorry I am for the way I acted at the Sweetheart Soirée. I know you’re with Eric and I’m dating Callie, but I can’t give up. Not when I still like you so much. You know I don’t want to hurt Callie and I’m sure you feel the same about Eric, but you can’t ignore the truth—there’s something between us. I hope you e-mail or text me back or something. If not, I’ll see you at school. Have a great time at YENT camp.

—Jacob

Not that I’d needed to read the e-mail again to know what it said. I’d had it for three months and now every single word had become stuck in my brain. Just like the look on his face when he’d found me in the courtyard minutes before I’d left to go home last year—the first time he’d told me he wanted me back. I’d run from him then, not answering, and hadn’t replied to any of his messages all summer.

My phone buzzed and I jumped. With shaky fingers, I grabbed my phone.

BRT! Can’t wait 2 c u.

Eric. He was the guy I wanted, not Jacob. Just thinking about seeing Eric after a summer apart made me grin. I couldn’t wait to see his creamy coffee-brown skin and his thick, dark hair that sometimes fell in front of his eyes.

Jacob would have to figure out how to deal.

I shut down the computer and left the dorm, hurrying down the glossy wooden floors of the hallway and stepping around luggage that was stacked outside dorm room doors. Eric was waiting for me. What happened with Jacob—his confession, the e-mail—none of it mattered. Eric and I were happy together. Jacob was too late.

    Very dramatic!

    Ugggg! Jacob should have left Sasha alone! He put her in a horrible position and made her feel guilty! He went behind Callie and Eric's backs to get back the taken girl who he ruined his chance with. And at the end, he lets her take the blame for u know what!!!!! My point: Im not a great fan of Jacob!! :( :( Love the series though!! :)

    JACOB IS SUCH A JERK!!! He should just leave Sasha alona so she can be with Eric. Eric and Sasha are the perfect couple. Jacob should have taken Sasha when he had the chance and she was SINGLE!!! But no! He gets jealous of Eric so he has to sway Sasha's thoughts away from Eric and to Jacob. Great book though:)

    definitely read this book

    This is one of my favorite CC books-of course they all are my favorite :) Sasha's back at Canterwood for 8th grade. So she has two BFFs-Paige and Callie-a boyfriend-Eric-an enemy-Jasmine-and frenemies-the Trio. But then there's the problem that Jacob told her he likes her-when he's dating CALLIE!!! Desperate for her friends and boyfriend not to know the truth, Sasha lies about basically everything. She struggles to keep everything a secret, and at her 13th birthday party, the lies come crashing down. Now Sasha must make things right. Will she and Callie ever be friends again? Will Paige find out the truth. Read book 7 to find out!

    Canterwood Crest: Little White Lies (Book 6)

    Here is yet another example of Jessica Burkhart's natural talent and voice. Canterwood Crest: Little White Lies is the sixth book in the Canterwood Crest Series. It combines horses, drama, and lip gloss together in a way that catches the reader and draws them in instantly. It is entertaining, absorbing, and funny. Jessica Burkhart's unique and captivating voice brings the CC characters to life. The CC girls are relatable and fascinating with real-life problems, thoughts, actions, and situations. Every character is unique and fun. This book is the perfect recipe with a mix of good characters, fun horses, and drama filled situations (but always with a touch of humor). Jessica Burkhart may easily be one of best tween/teen writers in the world. She really knows how to make the books fun, yet dramatic; serious, yet funny; horsey, yet not overly horsey. She has an amazing gift and writes with a voice that will take you over and draw you in effortlessly. I always am excited for the next book and they have never failed to thrill me. Here is my take on Canterwood Crest: Little White Lies:

    12 year-old Sasha Silver is in the center of a massive problem. In the previous book, Canterwood Crest: Best Enemies, Sasha learns of a secret that could destroy every element of her just-fixed, now perfect life. To protect everyone close to her, Sasha tells many "little white lies" that slowly eat her up from the inside. She is always on edge, always lying, and is really guilty. She is fighting with her conscience and is very nervous about pretty much everything. She starts to doubt herself as a person and then as a rider. She can't find comfort in anyone or anything. She is still holding up the fort until her thirteenth birthday party. Something terrible happens and Sasha must make a final lie to protect everyone. As all her lies crash down on her, she knows that losing her best friend to protect her is worth it. Find out how little Sasha's "little white lies" are in Canterwood Crest: Little White Lies.

    This book is by far the best and most eventful Canterwood book yet. Jessica really expresses Sasha's internal conflicts, thoughts, and the way she copes with issues, with the flair of an amazing young writer with a unique and special voice. Sasha can really be related to and so can her situations. Every time I read this book I find it amazing. It is most definitely my favorite book of the series. I would recommend this book to girls, ages 9-15. Even if you aren't horse crazy I bet you will love this book! Find out more in Canterwood Crest: Little White Lies and READ, READ, READ!

    Amazing but...


    I love, love, LOVE the CCA books but alot of them (this one especialy) really stress me out. I mean Sasha just needs to get a grip on her self and right when Jacob told her he liked her, she should have gone straight to Callie and Eric instead of leading them on and making them think everything was fine making when they do find out a lot harder. If she had told them MUCH sooner maybe she would (WARNING: SPOILER ALERT!) still be with Eric and still have Callie as a friend! Then that whole mess puts poor Paige in a bad situation and uhhhhhhggggg it's just this whole big drama palooza! I'm not saying dont get this book because this is one of the best book series i have ever read but prepare for a whole lot of drama, loss, and unexpected friendships!
