Mike, a normal student attending high school discovers the death of a fellow classmate.  Robbie Ducharme, a nerdy kid in his math class, has been brutally kicked to death in the park. Riel, Mike’s foster parent, is worried that Mike had something to do with the death, but Mike keeps telling him that he was not the murderer. Nonetheless, Mike finds out that all the signs and clues point towards him. Mike feels afraid that someone might be setting him up for a crime he never committed. Mike finds himself in a world of confusion when he begins to lie to the detectives and to Riel, and that just might have Mike sent behind bars.

Opinion: 

In Truth and Lies, I feel that the author has successfully included all the components of a mystery: murders, betrayals, setups, and twists. I can definitely compare this book and the Hardy Boys series. I was reading this book any chance I got in school or at home. This book was definitely a real cliffhanger. Truth and Lies has reminded me of how much I love and enjoy a mystery book.
