"An exhilarating read." --Library Journal

"CeCe's attempts to preserve her mother's reputation keep the story's emotional stakes high." --Publishers Weekly

"Readers' hearts won't stop racing as they make their way through this suspenseful novel, whether the palpitations are caused by a tense scene, a juicy breakthrough in the plot or a bit of dreamy romance. There are no unnecessary details to bog down the plot; every character, event and beautifully written description keeps the story going at a steady pace, and readers never feel as if they're being led to a dead end. Dunn's heartbreaking novel might show a sickening side of humankind, but the end result is a hopefully and moving narrative that will stick with readers." --RT Book Reviews, 4.5 Stars Top Pick

"Dunn manages to take what sounds like another un-of-the-mill teacher-student relationship story and turn it into a dark conspiracy. Mystery fans will race through the pages to find out what really happened the night Tabitha Brooks died. Recommend for fans of other "who do we trust" mysteries, such as the works of Michele Jaffee, Natalie Richards, and Hannah Jayne." --Booklist

"This one will tug your heart and leave you breathless!" --Natalie D. Richards, author of Six Months Later

"Equally heartbreaking and heroic, CeCe is a character you'll root for. You won't be able to turn the pages fast enough!" --Romily Bernard, author of the FIND ME trilogy

"The Darkest Lie is not only a twisty, fast-paced thriller that kept me guessing to the end, but also the story of a fearless girl struggling to understand the mother she lost, and uncover the secrets around her death that others want to stay hidden." --Shannon Grogan, author of From Where I Watch You

"The Darkest Lie is a headlong rush into the shadows of secrets that should not be kept - and proof that the most dangerous lies of all are the ones we tell ourselves." --Michelle Zink, author of The Prophecy of Sisters
