    • Unpolished, under-developed, blunt storytelling, and with one-dimensional (nonsensical) characters. Very superficial mystery, and very rushed in less than 210 pages!RTC to come.


    • A Lie for a Lie does not disappoint. Within the first 2 paragraphs, the novel transported me back to high school, reminding me of the emotional dualism so common to that time in one's life The feeling of freedom and of powerlessness, the intense want to be both independent and taken care of by one's parents, the excitement of a new crush and the pain that follows when things don't go as planned.MacCready is a gifted writer. Her work is character-centered with a strong, exciting plot line. The ma [...]


    • A Lie For a Lie is certainly a plot-driven mystery—I wanted to figure out what was going on with Kendra's father, but after I finished, I realized the book is actually more about the characters—that good people can do not-so-good things when put in a bad situation. Everyone is multi-dimensional, even the ones who seem pretty straightforward get thrown a curve ball at the end—one character in particular surprised me (no spoilers here). My family has a cabin in Maine and the author does a gr [...]


    • If I hadn't read this book, my life wouldn't be altered. This was book was boring, and I felt like the story was dragged on. There was little suspense; and the only time I felt a little suspense was when her dad caught her on film breaking into skippers house.My favorite thing about this book, is the ending when her and Jilly bond. It's just something that I think is cute and it's helping Kendra get her life around.


    • I don't know about anyone else, but this entire book was absolutely fantastic!! It might be one of the best books I've read in a very long time. The story line kept you on your feet and the character development was astounding. I finished this book only after a few days, but I wish I had made it last! I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys good writing, fast-paced action, or vibrant characters.


    • Grappling with an anxiety disorder isn't easy, but Kendra Sullivan is learning to cope and summer promises to be filled with fun and adventure, friends and first love, when she stumbles on a mystery that calls into question everything she believed to be true about her mostly contented life on the coast of Maine. Camera in hand, she sets off to unearth family secrets and try to set things back to right. You'll find yourself rooting for this sensitive and plucky protagonist who finds the wherewith [...]


    • I'm just going to be honest: I don't have a lot of thoughts for this book, other than I that I got nothing from it. Dry characters, boring plot, overly-condensed storylined the main character was so unbelievably naive and unlikable that I wanted to throw the book across the room multiple times. I hate being so negative, but I mean, wow. The only reason to read this book is because you could easily fly through it in one day (it's 200 pages, double spaced). *This book was sent to me by Henry Holt [...]



    • This was a fast read since it's only 200 pages but for an adult reader it was entirely predictable. I guessed a "huge reveal" so early in the story that it wasn't a shock at all when it happened. It's not the author's fault, but I felt somewhat misled by the summary on the cover that says "when a photograph reveals something unexpected, she sets out to investigate the situation." This is somewhat true because the story revolves around her investigating an incident, but I thought this was going t [...]


    • A Lie For A Lie was predictable. Was it good? Yes. Was it original? No, not really.After reading the first page or so, I already knew what was going to happen in the book. Yes, the whole book, not just the main plot. I easily guessed what Kendra was going to discover, who she was going to end up with, and just about everything else.That being said, the book was enjoyable to read. It was short and well paced, and I do happen to like most of the characters (all the ones I'm assuming readers are su [...]


    • I read A Lie for a Lie in a weekend. The main character, Kendra Sullivan, pulled me into her story with the opening sentence. Who doesn’t have a life-altering experience etched into their brains that they relive over and over again? Like Kendra, I wanted to understand her dad’s deceit. Author, Robin McCready, artfully left clues throughout. Still, the ending was a surprise that had me thinking for days.The coast of Maine setting added another rich layer to the story. I highly recommend this [...]


    • I read this book with an open mind but based on first impressions alone, I knew this one wasn't going to be a favorite. I thought the story opened really quickly and not enough backstory was given nor was there much of an introduction to the main characters, as a result I felt no attachment to ANY of the characters, in fact I disliked all of them. Besides being unlikeable, the characters were also one dimensional and shallow. In terms of plot, this one was really weak and tried to be surprising [...]


    • Reading this book felt like an emotional battering ram. I know I was supposed to feel tense intrigue, but mostly I just felt like more plot and character development wouldn't be remiss. Every character is incredibly flat. There was "the liar," "the cheater," "the overwrought artist," "the wronged party who also had a secret," "the psychologically damaged heroine who just needed answers." Cookie cutters should have come with these characters.Which brings me to the culmination of events- or lack t [...]


    • The good thing I can say about this book is that it kept my interest. It was an easy and quick read. This is good since many books can't hold my interest long and I find myself not completing them. However, I was far more interested in the main character's love life than I was in the mystery aspect of the story. In fact, there actually was no mystery. If this is what the author was going for then it didn't work. I was disappointed by the ending. The ending really fell flat. As I approached the e [...]


    • I meanway too short for any sort of character development and honestly the resolution of the mystery was flipping weirdI was reading other reviews that were like "I guessed the twist" or "it was so generic" like what kind of weird lives are being led in the review section for this book for how it ended to be normal or easy to guess for people? No thanks. 2.5/5




    • A fast read, I was hooked from the first chapter. I sympathized with Kendra's anxiety and dilemma as she strived to figure out what to do about what she knew, and while I didn't love how she went about it, I completely believed that she would do what she did. A nice twist/surprise at the end that I didn't expect!


    • A good enough book-nothing special--but a quick and easy read to recommend to reluctant readers but definitely interesting enough for most teen readers. It was a good vacation read.


    • I received a copy of this book from Netgalley for an honest review.Short, cute and fun, I enjoyed this book. While it wasn't the most original story the writing was well done and the characters kept me interested. The setting of Maine also added another pleasant dimension. Overall, nice read.


    • I didn't really enjoy this one as much as I'd hoped. I'm always excited to pick up a YA mystery, but this mystery wasn't so mysterious after all. I felt frustrated with all of the characters, even my favorite (Bo) - their actions were petty, nonsensical and often immature and left me shaking my head. I think this one had a lot of potential but just didn't quite get there for me.


    • "The Idea of a breakout summer was a plan and for me it was stepping out of my routine of anxiety whenever I was a least bit afraid."Kendra is a young woman who has been very anxious about most things since she was in an accident as a child. This anxiety has stopped her from taking part in a lot of things, and this summer she wants to change that. With the help of her best-friend Jen she wants to push herself to do more and enjoy more of life as she is getting ready to go into senior year of hig [...]


    • This a really quick, emotional, well written contemporary YA about finding yourself, finding love and figuring out that it's not always what you think it is. I really enjoyed. The characters felt realistic to me as did the situations. It moved at a great pace and never felt as if it was dragging or rushing too quickly. Definitely an author I will keep on my radar


    • This was a quick read that was fairly predictable. There was a little twist at the end that I was not expecting but it didnt blow my mind either. "Operation Snapshot" was the most interesting part of this book for me. I did enjoy reding those parts. Overall It was an ok read for me.



    • This was a quick read that I did enjoy. The story was a little predictable at times, but the characters were intriguing enough to keep me reading. Overall I would give it 4 stars.
