Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney
My name is Amber Reynolds. There are three things you should know about me:
- I’m in a coma.
- My husband doesn’t love me anymore.
- Sometimes I lie.
This is how the book starts — how can you not help but be drawn in? Amber is in a coma but while she can’t move a muscle she can hear everything going on in the room around her. She can also think but she’s having trouble remembering and she knows that her survival hinges on remembering how she got there.
This is a really good psychological thriller. I thought I had it pretty figured out but the author had a great twist that threw everything off kilter and changed the whole book. I was quite impressed. Some readers may have difficulty empathizing with the main character but wait for it I promise you will.
