New York Times bestselling author Kody Keplinger returns to the world of The DUFF in this brand-new companion novel!

Sonny Ardmore is an excellent liar. She lies about her dad being in prison. She lies about her mom kicking her out. And she lies about sneaking into her best friend's house every night.

Amy Rush might be the only person Sonny shares everything with - secrets, clothes, even a nemesis named Ryder Cross.

Ryder's the new kid at Hamilton High and everything Sonny and Amy can't stand - a prepschool snob. But Ryder has a weakness: Amy. So when Ryder emails Amy asking her out, the friends see it as a prank opportunity not to be missed.

But without meaning to, Sonny ends up talking to Ryder all night online. And to her horror, she realizes that she might actually like him. Only there's one small catch: he thinks he's been talking to Amy. Can Sonny lie her way to the truth, or will all her lies end up costing her both Ryder and Amy?

Read from the Book

I, Sonny Elizabeth Ardmore, do hereby confess that I am an excellent liar. It was never something I aspired to be, but rather a talent that I couldn't avoid. It started with lies about my homework â?? I could actually convince teachers that my dog ate it, with fake tears and everything if needed â?? and then I told lies about my family â?? my father was an international businessman, not a deadbeat thief who'd been tossed in jail when I was seven â?? and, eventually, I was lying about everything else, too. But as excellent a liar as I may be, lying hasn't led me to much excellence lately. So let the record show that this time I am telling the truth. All of it. The whole shebang. Even if it kills me.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Lying Out Loud" Keplinger creates vivid, believable characters that are full of spunk and joie de vivre . . . Fierce, fresh, total fun." -Kirkus ReviewsPraise for The DUFF"[A] well-written, irreverent, and heartfelt debut." -Publishers Weekly" A complex, enemies-with-benefits relationship that the YA market has never seen before . . . Her snarky teen speak, true-to-life characterizations, and rollicking sense of humor never cease in her debut." -Kirkus Reviews" What's best here is Bianca's brazen voice. Even when confused, she is truer to herself than most." -Booklist
