about

Meet Hawthorn Creely, one of the most relatable characters in recent young adult literature." (Book Page) She's not one to get involved in other people's business. But a missing person's investigation? That's another matter? Hawthorn wasn't trying to insert herself into a missing person's investigation. Or maybe she was. But that's only because Lizzie Lovett's disappearance is the one fascinating mystery their sleepy town has ever had. Bad things don'thappen to popular girls like Lizzie Lovett, and Hawthorn is convinced she'll turn up at any moment-which means the time for speculation is now.So Hawthorn comes up with her own theory for Lizzie's disappearance. A theory way too absurd to take seriously? at first. The more Hawthorn talks, the more she believes. 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?Told with a unique voice that is both hilarious and heart-wrenching, Hawthorn's quest for proof may uncover the greatest truth is within herself. "
Chelsea Sedoti fell in love with writing at a young age after discovering that making up stories was more fun than doing her school work (her teachers didn't always appreciate this). In an effort to avoid getting a real" job, Chelsea explored careers as a balloon twister, filmmaker, and paranormal investigator. Eventually she realized ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An incredible thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat! I think I can safely say that this book is unlike anything I've ever read! The voices in it really ring true, along with a mystery that had me sitting right on the edge of my seat! First, let's back up a little and summarize the book. Okay, so basically a girl who formerly went to the protagonist Hawthorn's school, Lizzie Lovett, suddenly went missing after going on a camping trip with her boyfriend, Enzo. Lizzie was a popular, spirited girl, whom many of her peers saw as a perfect, flawless person. Anyway, Hawthorn thought she had an idea of what had happened to her, so she decided to learn a bit more about her and what she was like by getting together and talking with Enzo. Even though some people thought that he had killed Lizzie, Hawthorn didn't care about the speculation and decided to go on with it. The two ended up bonding and finding the greatness in each other, but you can't help but wonder, what on earth happened to Lizzie Lovett? I really liked the characters in this book. They were a real pleasure to read about, and I found that they were very relatable. I found Hawthorn to be very determined and willing to find out about Lizzie's mystery, even if it included taking big risks such as meeting her boyfriend that others perceived as "creepy," and exploring the area of the woods where Lizzie and Enzo had been right before it happened, to see if she was still there. That requires a lot of effort and bravery, and for that, I applaud Hawthorn! Enzo was not really my favourite character. Even though I absolutely felt for him when his girlfriend had gone missing, I found him to be a bit iffy, if you know what I mean. He showed a lot of mixed feelings towards Hawthorn, and seemed to be a bit secretive. If I were Hawthorn, I probably would've run away if I'd met him, to tell the truth. He was in his 20s, and seemed to be a bit too rebellious for a 17-year old girl. I can't seem to comment much on the plot without spilling some spoilers. As much as I really want to spoil and rant about what happened, I will stay quiet until you pick it up! I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a mystery that will keep you mesmerized and addicted, because you will LOVE this! I whipped this almost 400-page ARC up in under 24 hours, that's how amazing this book was! *I received a digital ARC of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay This wasn't my favourite. Hawthorne, the main character, was very strange. It had the potential to be really good, but I would give it a pass.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Weird, but good It's been over six months since I read this book as part of the Big Library Read, and I can't decide how I feel about it. The main character, Hawthorn, was a really odd girl who made a lot of terrible decisions. Does that make her a bad character? Definitely not. The story was weird, the characters were kind of out-there, but I definitely enjoyed it and would read another book about the characters.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't Connect with Main Character This book was weird, and I did not connect with the main character. The narrator was good, which is probably why I continued to listen. I’m giving this 1 out of 5 stars. So this book was a Big Library Read, which is why I finally listened to the audiobook. I figured if they liked it so much to promote it through that program, and because of the many 4-5 star reviews on Goodreads, I’d enjoy it. Nope, unfortunately not. If I’d tried another format besides the audiobook, this would probably be a DNF book. I just couldn’t connect with Hawthorne. Maybe for a couple pages in the middle, and then the last 1 1/2 chapters, but that doesn’t make a huge fangirl out of a reader. And I didn’t really love any of the other characters either. I can appreciate weirdness and/or differentness, but this book was too far out there for me. And I felt like nothing was really happening for a good deal of the book besides Hawthorne’s theories about Lizzie Lovett. She felt pretty obsessed to me. All I can say is if you want, give this one a try for yourself. I almost always have similar ratings on books we’ve both read with one Goodreads friend, but she gave this 5 stars. Like the publishing world says, it’s subjective.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett by Chelsea Sedoti When I heard this book was about a girl disappearing and another girl getting caught up in finding her, I thought it sounded like the perfect mix of contemporary/thriller. What I didn't expect was a stalker story. The truth is,The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett might as well have been called A Hundred Ways to Stalk Lizzie Lovett. Honestly this book made me just question it the entire time. There are quite a few theme is covered in this book mental health issues, bullying, loneliness, self-esteem, obsession, relationships, as well as others. Hawthorn it’s a very unique character. She was pretty annoying but she also was woody with a wild imagination. She spoke her mind constantly \Often without thinking before she spoke. I was wondering why no one thought a 17-year-old dating a 25-year-old was weird also no one thought at the end of the book that Hawthorne Thinking of Lizzie being a werewolf was not far-fetched by any means or strange. I disliked Enzo as a character because he is very self-centred a lot of the time and even though he likes spending time with Hawthorn, you can tell he is just using her to distract himself from the guilt he feels about Lizzie. Connor is her brother's best friend and besides Hawthorn is my favourite. I think my biggest problem with this book was that I was totally mislead by the title and blurb. I expected Hawthorne to become caught up into this crazy investigation regarding Lizzie’s disappearance. I wanted suspense, tension and of course a whole bunch of lies. What I got what something completely different and not altogether interesting. I think it’s time for me to stay away from YA mysteries. I love YA and respect it as a genre, some of my favorite books are YA novels. But I can’t think of a single YA mystery that I’ve liked, much less loved. So no matter how intriguing a blurb sounds, or how pretty and striking the cover may be, I’m going to steer clear of YA mysteries for the foreseeable future.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Couldn't get into it ... I wanted to love this book and the premise sounded good, however I couldn't get vested enough into it to finish. Stopped reading about halfway through as I couldn't see where it was going or why I would want to finish reading :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this book to bits! This book. THIS BOOK. I love it so much I want to eat it. At this moment, having just finished it, I feel like I have never before loved a book as much as I love this book. Hawthorn Creely is this obnoxious, endearing, brilliantly voicey teen who wants there to be more to the world than what she sees every day. Because the world she sees is hard. And lonely. Chelsea doesn't hit you over the head with Hawthorn's I-so-desperately-want-to-hug-her loneliness, though. Instead, she delivers it subtly in these sock-you-in-the-gut lines. Like: "But really, I was most afraid of turning my phone back on and finding out no one had even tried to get ahold of me." or "A burrito tastes good even if you're eating alone." Instead of facing that hard world, Hawthorn obsesses about the disappearance of Lizzie Lovett, losing herself in a ridiculous theory that she may or may not actually believe. And is brilliant and heart-breaking and hilarious while doing so. (Examples: "Didn't your parents ever tell you opinions should be left to people with brains?" and "I wanted his ice cream to fall off the cone and onto the pavement on a really hot day. I wanted him to read a really great mystery, only to find someone had ripped out the end pages where it was solved.") The book positively sings with narrative voice, and is full of so many gorgeous lines, and I can't recommend it enough. Read this book. Just read this book.
