What I Saw and How I Lied, by Judy Blundell

Written in a retro style of language to pick up on the mood of the 1940s, What I Saw and How I Lied is a gripping story of a young girl caught in her first intense love during the post-WWII world of 1947. Evie's stepfather, returning from his tour of duty in the Army, takes Evie and her mother to Florida, where she meets his old Army pal Peter and sparks begin to fly! But when a tragedy strikes, Evie is forced to consider the truth about her parents. This National Book Award winner for Young People's Literature is part mystery, part romance, and part a coming-of-age novel. ~ Robbie
