A teenage misfit named Hawthorn Creely inserts herself in the investigation of missing person Lizzie Lovett, who disappeared mysteriously while camping with her boyfriend. Hawthorn doesn’t mean to interfere, but she has a pretty crazy theory about what happened to Lizzie. In order to prove it, she decides to immerse herself in Lizzie’s life. That includes taking her job… and her boyfriend. It’s a huge risk — but it’s just what Hawthorn needs to find her own place in the world.
The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett was amazing. Like seriously one of the best books I have ever read (and I read a lot of books). Hawthorn Creely is an incredibly entertaining narrator. She has this unique view of the world, like everything and anything is possible.
The book starts when Lizzie Lovett disappears, and Hawthorn begins to obsess over what happened. Why? Because bad things don’t happen to perfect people… or so she believes.
The book is filled with imagination, adventure, and some of the most amazing insults and curses I have ever read in my whole life. They are fresh and original and hilarious. I seriously think Chelsea Sedoti is a genius.
Like this little piece of gold here:
I wished someone would replace Mychelle’s fancy shampoo with a drugstore brand. I wished she would suddenly forget the name of her five favorite songs. I wished every time she microwaved a frozen burrito, the center would stay cold.
The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett was an quick, easy read. And now all I want to do is go read it again (and again and again). The characters are all so original and interesting, and each bring something unique to the story. The plot is exciting, and the writing is amazing. I want more Hawthorn Creely in my life! And I definitely recommend this book to any lover of fiction; you do not want to miss this.
I give The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett five out of five hearts. If I could give it more, I totally would. It’s just that amazing of a book.
