Special thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a free, electronic ARC of this novel received in exchange for an honest reviewThe Goode School is an elite, private school for girls settled amongst the scenic hills of Virginia A school known for its elite students, on the fast track to Ivy League schools of their choice, where the only rules are those in the school s Honour Code, created to ensure responsibility, honesty and dignity amongst staff, students and faculty So, when a young girl is found hanging from the front gates, the school is quickly turned upside down Fingers are pointed at everyone, and after a rash of recent deaths at the school, no one is blameless Rumours fly, and lies abound, but what really happened J.T Ellison is known for novels such as Lie to Me and Tear Me Apart, among many others My only other experience with Ms Ellison was with Lie to Me , so although I am not going into this review completely knowledgeable of all of Ellison s novels, the two I have read are merely middle of the road novels, with enough entertainment and suspense to keep a reader intrigued, but not enough twisting and turning to really satisfy When a group of rich girls are secluded in one place, you know something bad is going to happen Money, power, secrets mixed with self confidence and hormones It s a no brainer From the beginning of this novel, there are hints and teasers as to what you expect would be an epic twist Although the twist is there, it is not what we are expecting and I found it to be disappointing The story is well told, and the characters are all beautiful and perfect, rich and brilliant, the type of girls that are easy to hateand in this case, to blameThere are questions throughout the novel, and the ending does provide some satisfying just desserts, but the wow factor you expect from the twist does not deliver Overall, I enjoyed reading Ellison s novels, as they generally have a consistent style and flow, which makes for an easy read Fans of Ellison will definitely enjoy her new novel, as her creativity and talent shines through Good Girls Lie has all of the teenage angst you would expect from a private all female schoolmy worst nightmare, to be quite honest , with a little bit of murder and deception thrown in.
