to TWO TRUTHS AND A LIE by Meg Mitchell Moore
When single mom, Sherri, and her 11 year old daughter, Katie, move to a new town, a group of friends is changed in ways they never could have imagined. Is the “Mom Squad” really as nice and welcoming as they like to think they are? “The borders between the Mom Squad and the rest of the world were like those of Castro’s Cuba: closed until further notice.” Can I just say that catty, snarky women are SO MUCH MORE fun in books than real life? This book was fun, dishy, and entertaining but only because it was a book and not real life haha. I was totally hooked after the prologue… and it’s only two paragraphs long! The chapters from the perspective of the collective “Mom Squad” were my favorite because they were bursting with truths, lies, and sarcasm. And so many explanation points !!! to prove they are not at all judging others, but doth protest too much?! The whole story was suspenseful in a deliciously gossipy sort of way. As in, oooooh yet another character is keeping a secret; please do share with me, your new BFF! This is THE perfect summer read. “In a town like ours, not a lot happens, and sometimes we look for the excitement where we can get it.” Location: Newburyport, Massachusetts
