LIAR by Justine Larbalestier

17-year-old Micah Wilkins has a mother, father, little brother, and unusual extended family.  She’s a magnificent athlete who can run faster than should be possible.  She’s an oddball at school.  And she’s got a classmate, Zach, who is a bit more than a friend to her.

Of course, we don’t know how much of that is true, because Micah’s a compulsive liar.  She admits it herself.

When Zach turns up dead in Central Park, Micah swears that she has nothing to do with it.  But she finds her story harder and harder to explain as time goes by.  How many lies can one person tell?
