Big Library Read launches today!
What Happened to Lizzie Lovett?
A mystery that readers of Buckinghamshire Libraries can unravel by participating in the world's largest global eBook reading clubChelsea Sedoti's debut young adult novel, The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett, has been selected as the featured title for millions of readers around the world to read at the same time beginning Thursday, October 12 and concluding October 26. Buckinghamshire Libraries customers will be able to borrow the eBook or eAudiobook by visiting
Told with a unique voice that is both hilarious and heart-wrenching, Sedoti challenges readers to distinguish the line between reality and fiction. Popular girl Lizzie Lovett's disappearance is the one fascinating mystery her sleepy town has ever had. Classmate and teenage misfit, Hawthorn Creely has her own theory for Lizzie's disappearance. And what better way to collect evidence than to immerse herself in Lizzie's life? Like getting a job at the diner where Lizzie worked and hanging out with Lizzie’s boyfriend. After all, it's not as if he killed her-or did he? Hawthorn’s quest for proof may uncover the greatest truth is within herself.
“The protagonist of The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett is no stranger to reading; she knows all about using books as an escape. Seventeen-year-old misfit Hawthorn Creely is dissatisfied with the real world. She'd rather lose herself in fiction, where everything is bigger, better, and more magical. But when Hawthorn applies this mindset to the disappearance of her former classmate, Lizzie Lovett, life goes awry.” – Chelsea Sedoti.
