Fiona claims she doesn't remember anything about the night her best friend Trixie left a party and walked into the ocean. It's ruled a suicide, but Fiona doesn't believe her Trixie is really dead - and she is determined to find out why Trixie would want everyone to think she is. Fiona enlists the help of Trixie's former best-friend-with-benefits, and their search for the truth leads them toward another suicide case in their small, ocean-side town. But the closer Fiona gets to finding out what happened, the more she realizes that she might not have known her best friend at all. Told in alternating chapters between the past and the present, Last Girl Lied To will appeal to fans of mysteries and thrillers, as well as contemporary readers.
I can't lie: Last Girl Lied To is my favorite thriller of 2019. Flynn's perfectly paced story about a girl who can't trust anyone integrates important subjects, like body image, addiction, and romantic obsession, imaginatively and masterfully. Twisted and delicious. -- Kim Savage, author of In Her Skin A twisty, piercing thriller with an end you won't see coming. --Mindy McGinnis, author of Female of the Species Fans of E. Lockhart, Karen M. McManus, and Flynn's other work will revel in this mystery/thriller and the authenticity with which its characters are rendered. --Booklist
