Awhile ago, one of my writer friends Cory (aka Corrine Jackson) needed someone to read the first thirty pages or so of her work-in-progress, and I volunteered. It was one of the only times when I've read a work-in-progress for someone and completely forgot that's what I was doing, because I was so absorbed. It was so beautifully written then-- I had some serious writer envy-- and I'm sure it's even better now.
Okay, I'm going to post the cover now:
Ah! So pretty and expressive! And an interesting spin on a "there are people on the cover" cover.
And here's the summary:
A powerful debut novel about the gray space between truth and perception.
Quinn’s done the unthinkable: she kissed a guy who is not Carey, her boyfriend. And she got caught. Being branded a cheater would be bad enough, but Quinn is deemed a traitor, and shunned by all of her friends. Because Carey’s not just any guy—he’s serving in Afghanistan and revered by everyone in their small, military town.
Quinn could clear her name, but that would mean revealing secrets that she’s vowed to keep—secrets that aren’t hers to share. And when Carey goes MIA, Quinn must decide how far she’ll go to protect her boyfriend…and her promise.
IF I LIE comes out August 28, 2012 (so far away, I know!). Here it is on Goodreads. And you can see her thoughts on it here.
