The First Lie: A Lying Game Novella - Sara Shepard (Mini Review)

Title: The First Lie: A Lying Game Novella
Author:  Sara Shepard
Release Date: December 18th, 2012
Publisher: HarperTeen
Group: Young Adult Literature
Featuring Sutton Mercer before her tragic death, this stand-alone digital original novella from #1 New York Times bestselling author Sara Shepard is an exciting, must-read companion to the Lying Game series. Back when she was alive, Sutton kept a million secrets. But how she got together with Thayer is her juiciest one of all. . . .

It's the summer before junior year and Sutton Mercer and her friends rule Hollier High. Then Thayer Vega returns home from soccer camp. In two short months he's gone from being her best friend's scrawny younger brother to a hot soccer god with a major ego—and a bone to pick with the Lying Game girls.

To bring him back down to earth, Sutton's friends convince her to string Thayer along so she can publicly reject him. But as she gets to know the real Thayer, Sutton starts to wonder: Is flirting with Thayer still just a game to her? Or is the queen of the Lying Game lying . . . to herself?
I will admit, I am a huge Sara Shepard fan. I honestly will read anything she will publish. She's probably going to make, I don't know, six more Lying Game books and you will see me there reading them all. I was so excited to read this! I read that it was suppose to be about Sutton and Thayer, who I love so much. This short novella takes place before Emma ever entered the picture, so I was excited to see how things will be.

There wasn't anything revealed in this book, but I did really like it. It was nice to see Sutton's point of view for a change and see how she thinks. I really love Sutton and Thayer's relationship. I am so sad that they won't be together in the end. Sutton truly did love Thayer. She wasn't playing him at all. This novella just makes me more anxious and eager to find out what really did happen to Sutton in the actual Lying Game books.

I can't wait to read more Lying Game books by Sara Shepard. I love them, incase you haven't noticed yet! They have become my favorite over Pretty Little Liars anymore. There seems to more mystery and I like the characters better in this world!
