Lucy, the only witness, helplessly spun fantasy after fantasy about Teddy’s disappearance, to the detectives’ fury and her parents’ despair.

The world is watching, and her whole life is under intense scrutiny. A life full of stories, some more believable than others. Could she have hurt Teddy? Did she kill Dan?

And hope to die. “One of the most unsettling—and unforgettable—heroines I’ve ever met.” — Shari Lapena, New York Times bestselling author of The Couple Next Door

Book Summary:

Getting someone to tell the truth is an essential skill that very few people possess. In the boardroom, classroom, or our own homes, every day we interact with others and try to get the truth from them. People are often untruthful out of fear of negative consequences associated with divulging information. But if a person is made to forget the long-term outcomes of lying, he or she can be influenced to disclose sensitive information that's being withheld. The aim is to encourage the person to remain in short-term thinking mode, shifting focus away from the long-term ramifications of telling the truth. As former CIA agents and bestselling authors of Spy the Lie, Philip Houston, Mike Floyd, and Susan Carnicero are among the world's best at detecting deceptive behavior and eliciting the truth from even the most accomplished liars. Get the Truth is a step-by-step guide that empowers readers to elicit the truth from others. It also chronicles the fascinating story of how the authors used a methodology Houston developed to elicit the truth in the counterterrorism and criminal investigation realms, and how these techniques can be applied to our daily lives. Using thrilling anecdotes from their careers in counterintelligence, and with easy-to-follow instructions, the authors provide a foolproof means of getting absolutely anybody to give an honest answer. Get the Truth is the easy and effective way to learn how to get the truth every time.

Book Summary:

From the One who said multiple times, “I tell you the truth,” flows forth “grace and truth.” Even antagonistic listeners testified that, “This man speaks with authority.” Soldiers sent to arrest him came back empty-handed saying, “No one ever spoke like this man.” Something in His demeanor on the cross at Calvary caused the soldier to exclaim, “Surely this was the Son of God.”When He spoke, the Word of God was flowing forth; resonating in people's hearts like a wooden instrument resonates at the plucking or striking of strings. Even now His words bear witness that this Person is the Voice of Truth from whom we were created. Truth seekers respond like a newborn child responds to their mother's voice which they have heard already in the womb. As we embrace the One who said, “I am the Truth,” we also are sent to proclaim grace and truth with our lives.

Book Summary:

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! In I’m Telling the Truth, but I’m Lying Bassey Ikpi explores her life—as a Nigerian-American immigrant, a black woman, a slam poet, a mother, a daughter, an artist—through the lens of her mental health and diagnosis of bipolar II and anxiety. Her remarkable memoir in essays implodes our preconceptions of the mind and normalcy as Bassey bares her own truths and lies for us all to behold with radical honesty and brutal intimacy.

By the time she was in her early twenties, Bassey was a spoken word artist and traveling with HBO's Def Poetry Jam, channeling her life into art. But beneath the façade of the confident performer, Bassey's mental health was in a precipitous decline, culminating in a breakdown that resulted in hospitalization and a diagnosis of Bipolar II. In I'm Telling the Truth, But I'm Lying, Bassey Ikpi breaks open our understanding of mental health by giving us intimate access to her own. Exploring shame, confusion, medication, and family in the process, Bassey looks at how mental health impacts every aspect of our lives—how we appear to others, and more importantly to ourselves—and challenges our preconception about what it means to be "normal." Viscerally raw and honest, the result is an exploration of the stories we tell ourselves to make sense of who we are—and the ways, as honest as we try to be, each of these stories can also be a lie.

Book Summary:

Suzanne Dorsey spent her formative years feeling like she wasn't allowed to say what she really felt because it would cause pain to her family and friends. Although everyone knew her as an outspoken person, not everything she said represented the truth in her heart. It wasn't until she married, moved away from her family and small hometown, and began writing down all of her thoughts and emotions that she discovered a path to emotional and psychological freedom-through the "truth." "Because I Tell You the Truth" shares her journey toward realizing that for thirteen years God had been healing her pain without her even knowing it. It is a compilation of earnest, heartfelt, and truthful poetry, letters, and thoughts on the path to recovery. She pairs each piece of creative writing with commentary on life events and circumstances that inspired it. The result is an inspirational example for anyone who finds disappointment as a way of life, for those who feel voiceless and trapped, and for the brokenhearted in need of the kind of healing truth and freedom that only God can bring. Discover your inner courage, and live the life of truth that God intended.

Book Summary:

Truth is a powerful marketing tool--and really the only way to promote a message and brand effectively. Truth in advertising has long been something to ignore, or at least downplay. The role of advertising has been to position and manipulate brands to convince consumers that they’re imbued with qualities they don’t necessarily possess, or presume to tell them which ones matter. It worked when the brand’s voice was the only voice, but with the rise of social media that era is over. Marketers have focused their messages on entertainment, creating funny or engaging campaigns that win awards but don’t always sell products. Consumers determine what’s true, and smart companies have realized that every communications medium can and will be used to contribute to those conclusions. InTell the Truth, Jonathan Baskin and Sue Unerman look at the content and context of marketing communications. They provide the research of hundreds of companies and in-depth case studies on more than 50 global brands to show us that truthful brands deliver sales, profits, and sustainable relationships. Truth truly yields true competitive advantage.

Book Summary:

In this contemporary retelling of The Canterbury Tales, a group of teens on a bus ride to Washington, DC, each tell a story—some fantastical, some realistic, some downright scandalous—in pursuit of the ultimate prize: a perfect score. Jeff boards the bus for the Civics class trip to Washington, DC, with a few things on his mind: -Six hours trapped with his classmates sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. -He somehow ended up sitting next to his ex-best friend, who he hasn’t spoken to in years. -He still feels guilty for the major part he played in pranking his teacher, and the trip’s chaperone, Mr. Bailey. -And his best friend Cannon, never one to be trusted and banned from the trip, has something “big” planned for DC. But Mr. Bailey has an idea to keep everyone in line: each person on the bus is going to have the chance to tell a story. It can be fact or fiction, realistic or fantastical, dark or funny or sad. It doesn’t matter. Each person gets a story, and whoever tells the best one will get an automatic A in the class. But in the middle of all the storytelling, with secrets and confessions coming out, Jeff only has one thing on his mind—can he live up to the super successful story published in the school newspaper weeks ago that convinced everyone that he was someone smart, someone special, and someone with something to say. In her debut novel, Kim Zarins breathes new life into Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales in a fresh and contemporary retelling that explores the dark realities of high school, and the subtle moments that bring us all together.

Book Summary:

ForeWord Clarion Review 030114 ****(*) Moulthrop draws moral human lessons from thoroughly believable people in this literary short story collection. Robert Moulthrop offers eleven short stories that function as neat windows of realism through which people of a certain age and class stumble down life's pathway. Moulthrop is a gifted, accomplished writer, published multiple times and with multiple awards. His characters are familiar-professors, business people-and sometimes muddling, sometimes confused, yet never worrying about bank balances or the next mortgage payment. Some, as in Sam in "Where Are You?," one of the more emotionally affecting stories, know themselves not at all. Here, Moulthrop definitively frames a man's loss of perceived self with a narrative, winding through memory, conversation, and dialogue. Sam is a man readers know, or think they know, until a climatic revelation fractures every perception. The story's pace, expansion, and climax are superb. Moulthrop's artful observations work well in the title story, in which a woman's friend leaves her husband. The focus on a minor detail, the narrator's love of ironing-"I was good at it, the same way some people are good at bookkeeping"-reveals character, place, and status. The author's technique will satisfy aficionados of realistic short fiction, particularly his ability to draw moral and ethical lessons from thoroughly believable scenarios, situations, and people. Moulthrop's settings are indefinite, generally eastern or midwestern by inference, but his plots require only what might be termed "interior settings" to be established; his characters feel truly in place, urban but not metropolitan, educated but not elite. Plots appear simple yet reveal conflict and character enlightenment. In the final story, "Barzini to the Rescue," a young boy is treasured by his mother's uncle and aunt, two happy souls who were once vaudeville circuit performers. The boy's father, a banker, is conservative and controlling, never comfortable around the uncle and aunt, a situation exacerbated when he is pressured to help them finance a farm. Here, Moulthrop exposes multigenerational conflict, class conflict, and a conflict of values. Themes are beautifully rendered, often focusing on loss. A man is reminded of mortality when a neighbor's child is killed. Worlds collapse when marriages falter. An artist grows senile, the painful loss reflected through his wife and children, who treasured his passion for life. In one of the more powerful efforts, "Far Rockaway," readers confront love and passion, identity and commitment. Moulthrop writes with a touch for literary language: "The houses stood each apart, separated one from another by sudden driveways or cool strips of low, dark green shrubs." He is a gifted writer, and while one or two stories may have less than fulfilling endings, his writing is sophisticated and intelligent enough that an inquisitive reader will not be discouraged. This book is highly recommended for followers of modern short fiction.

Book Summary:

We are experts at hiding from each other. We withhold the truth, pretend we're okay, and perform at great personal cost. In fact, many of us are so good at lying to others about how we're "just fine, thank you" that we don't even realize anymore that we're lying to ourselves. We're missing the opportunity to offer our true selves to the world around us, to say what needs to be said and do what needs to be done, and to live with grace and gumption. If you're tired of smiling on the outside while you are broken and battered on the inside, Ashley Abercrombie has a message for you--it's okay to tell the truth about yourself and what you've been through. In being brutally honest about her own struggle to overcome addiction, rape, abortion, perfectionism, and dysfunctional relationships, she helps you break the silence on your own pain and shame in order to find healing, encouragement, and ultimately acceptance. You'll learn to listen to your gut, courageously own your story (no matter how messy), and release those around you to do the same.

Book Summary:

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER In her enthralling debut, Gilly Macmillan explores a mother’s search for her missing son, weaving a taut psychological thriller as gripping and skillful as The Girl on the Train and The Guilty One. In a heartbeat, everything changes… Rachel Jenner is walking in a Bristol park with her eight-year-old son, Ben, when he asks if he can run ahead. It’s an ordinary request on an ordinary Sunday afternoon, and Rachel has no reason to worry—until Ben vanishes. Police are called, search parties go out, and Rachel, already insecure after her recent divorce, feels herself coming undone. As hours and then days pass without a sign of Ben, everyone who knew him is called into question, from Rachel’s newly married ex-husband to her mother-of-the-year sister. Inevitably, media attention focuses on Rachel too, and the public’s attitude toward her begins to shift from sympathy to suspicion. As she desperately pieces together the threadbare clues, Rachel realizes that nothing is quite as she imagined it to be, not even her own judgment. And the greatest dangers may lie not in the anonymous strangers of every parent’s nightmares, but behind the familiar smiles of those she trusts the most. Where is Ben? The clock is ticking...

Book Summary:

Are these stories autobiographical or fiction? the author is asked. Yes, she says. Life does not provide perfect plots and all the cool characters you need if you hope to hook a readerbut imagination stitched to scraps of experience and observation can create a patchwork quilt called fiction. The stories follow the Law of the Imagination: Tell the truth and the lies take care of themselves. Any links that a reader may invent are reasonable even if not true. A teenage daughter enduring a home perm... a saleswoman coveting a thin gold chain a woman seeing off her college-bound son and visiting parents all on the same day... In this collection of exquisitely nuanced stories, it isnt so much what is said, but what is left unspoken that gives Powells work such emotional complexity and firepower. Proof positive that a good story is truer than the truth. Joni B. Cole , author of Toxic Feedback: Helping Writers Survive and Thrive What did you like best about this book? This book is filled with extraordinary characters and diverse plotting. I eagerly read through it while wondering what next the book held in store for me. I believe its strength, aside from the excellent writing skills, lies in the way you captured the essence of our lives. I identified with so many of the chapters, saying to myself, yes, that's the way it is, that's what happened, that's how I felt. I particularly liked Scenes with a View that captures the young daughter moving into her first place and the parents' discomfort with it. I remember how vulnerable I felt at that time. How hard I tried to make my place perfect, or at least good enough to gain my parents' approval. How can the author improve this book? It would be difficult to say how you could improve this book. I thought the writing was superb, characterization the same, and the stories tugged at my heart. I cried at the end. Tears fill my eyes even as I write these words. Congratulations on a lovely book. If you are not a winner this year, it is because there are so many excellent entries. Writer's Digest Judge's commentary
