The Hundred Lies of LIzzie Lovett

by Chelsea Sedoti

The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett is one of those books that are impossible to put down! Hawthorn Creely is probably one of the most unpopular kids in her high school. However, once Lizzie Lovett, the most popular alumni of Hawthorn's school goes missing everyone freaks out. Everyone is frantic, but after a month everyone doesn't care anymore, except Hawthorn. Hawthorn throws herself into Lizzie's life, taking herself on a mission to get the bottom of Lizzie's disappearance.

Almost everyone in Hawthorn's life has said or done something to doubt her. Hawthorn feels like nobody understands her and she is the only one who is still searching for the things less ordinary. My favorite quote from Sedoti's book is after Hawthorn is doubted, "I felt very alone. I lived in a world practical people, like Emily and Rush and my parents, people who had stopped believing in the impossible a long time ago. Where were the other people like me? Locked up probably. Getting called crazy and delusional." Hawthorn is never praised, liked, or honored. She can accept she isn't popular, but she never quits. 

My favorite character would have to be Connor. Connor is always by Hawthorn's side and never stabs her in the back. He is there when Hawthorn is down, and he is there to comfort her. Connor is the kind of person that is rare to find in a world of people that just want to be popular. While Sedoti provides the reader with an incredible story, she also teaches us to never quit, just as Hawthorn never did. I highly recommend The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett to anyone who loves a good mystery and likes a little laugh.
