Something made him angry that night.
Something made her cry.
Something made Trixie disappear.
What if it was all the same thing?
Fiona claims she doesn’t remember anything about the night her best friend left a party early and walked into the ocean. But the truth is, she wishes she could forget.
Trixie’s disappearance is ruled a suicide, but Fiona starts to believe that Trixie isn’t really dead. Piecing together the trail of a girl who doesn't want to be found leads her to Jasper, Trixie’s former friend with benefits, and Beauthe boy who turned Fiona down, who loved someone else, who might be happy Trixie is gone.
The closer Fiona gets to finding out what happened, and the closer she gets to Jasper and Beau, the more she realizes that the girl she knew better than anyone may have been a carefully constructed lieand she might have been waiting to disappear the entire time.
Told in alternating chapters between the past and the present, Last Girl Lied To is a gripping emotional thriller.

Trixie Heller walked into the ocean one night and everyone believes it was suicide except Trixie's best friend Fiona. Fiona can't figure out why Trixie killed herself. She starts to investigate and finds out that maybe she didn't know her friend as well as she thinks. She also wonders how it connects to a previous suicide by a boy who had everything going for him. The book is told in alternating chapters between present and past. There are several twists and turns in the story involving almost every character. I felt the ending was a little disappointing even if it was true to the story.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review as part of the blog tour hosted by Fantastic Flying Book Club. It’s been quite a long time since I’ve read a contemporary YA thriller so I was really excited when I started reading this one. From the sound of the synopsis, I find it really promising and in the end, I liked the story. Last Girl Lied To started out full of intrigue which hooked me from the very beginning. The book focuses on Fiona’s journey in unearthing the mystery about her best friend’s enigmatic suicide. Although the book’s concept isn’t new in the genre, I found myself liking the book still. Peppered with a few twists and surprises in the plot, the mystery really tied itself up well. Unfortunately, I failed to connect with the main character, Fiona, no matter how hard I’ve tried to. I just didn’t see much development in her which disappointed me, thus, factoring in to my indifference to her. The book’s pace was also a little bit too slow for my liking which put me off a tad bit. But the ending was quite good and I think it wraps everything quite good. Overall, despite having a bit of issues with this one, I still found myself enjoying Last Girl Lied To for its great mystery and suspense!
