Book Blurb #46: Simple Lies

Posted on Jan 12, 2012 by Lisa Ricard Claro   No Comments Yet | Posted in Book Blurb Friday


Welcome again to Book Blurb Friday.  If you’re a newbie, here’s the scoop so you understand what follows.  Please click HERE or click the tab under the blog header for details of the Book Blurb Friday meme.  This is the shortened, abridged version:

Write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book.

Below is this week’s “book cover,” generously offered for our creative blurbs by my hubby Joe.

Simple Lies
(132 words)
Three friends. Two secrets. One summer . . .
Amy, Ben and Julie comprise an unlikely trio, thrown together when their families vacation at neighboring lake houses. Just as they never expect to be friends, neither do they anticipate what unfolds in the last days of summer.
Amy, the drama queen, found her.
Ben, the scientist, realized what she really was.
Julie, the film buff, documented every moment . . . every decision . . . every lie.
For three young teens, a boring summer turns first exciting and then horrifying as lies told have far-reaching effects that create consequences they could never have imagined. What appeared harmless becomes dangerous, the innocent becomes deadly. Secrets that should have remained buried will rise . . . born from the foundation of simple lies.
