Lies Like Poison, Chelsea Pitcher
*I received an e-arc from Netgalley and The Book Terminal Tour group free of charge, and my opinions are completely my own.*
Killing her would’ve been easy. That spring we made flower garlands. That spring petals were strewn across her kitchen table, where she drank her tea. If we dropped a petal of belladonna, a petal of poppy, and a petal of lily into that cup, we’d never really know which one of us killed her.
We’d never know which one of us was guilty.
Let’s talk about this book. I loved it so much. I don’t think I have the words to say how much I loved it, really. but I am going to try. Just please read this book and love it as much as me. This is one of the best queer YA books I have devoured in awhile. I read it in two days, staying up late because I could not get enough. This book is interesting because you never know who is telling the truth, and you must go back to keep trying to discern what is really going on. I have to say, I was still shocked when it was done. And I read it quick, even on my phone which I normally avoid because of my eyes.
What I loved about this was how dark it was. And how queer. There is a trans character and a sapphic relationship. There is queer love. It is all so great and lovely and I could cry for days about how much I love it. Like I could just scream about this book til I could not speak. Even though the mystery was easily solved for me, it did nothing to detract how much I love this book.
I love this book so much. Queer stories need to be told, and this is one I highly suggest you get ASAP.
