The Truth Beneath the Lies

Amanda Searcy

Searcy’s twist-filled debut is a psychological thriller that follows two girls, Kayla and Betsy who are trying to survive in less-than-ideal circumstances. All Kayla Asher wants is to run away from the run-down subsidized housing where she lives with her drug-addicted mother. She’s also trying to avoid being murdered by the serial killer targeting poor girls in her neighborhood. Meanwhile all Betsy Hopewell wants is to survive. She's haunted by dangerous people from her past and is coping with life at a new school and a potential new stepdad. Both girls are trying to avoid danger but when their worlds collide, only one will make it out alive!
