Liar, Liar by Gary Paulsen

Liar, Liar: The Theory, Practice, and Destructive Properties of Deception by Gary Paulsen
Wendy Lamb Books

Fourteen-year-old Kevin is very good at lying and doing so makes life easier, but when he finds himself in big trouble with his friends, family, and teachers, he must find a way to end his lies forever.

  1. This book was breezy and funny, with heart, too. Middle-schooler Kevin exceeds at telling plausible and nearly undetectable lies. He decides to lie to others because it's so much easier than being honest ... that is, until it becomes so much more work. Soon he can't keep the big tangle straight. This would be a great book to recommend to kids who like books like Frindle by Andrew Clements. However, I don't think it is a Newbery book.
