Good Girls Lie by J. T. Ellison

We are greeted on the opening page with a girl hanging from the entrance gate to The Goode School for privileged girls, and it all begins.

And then we meet Ash as she arrives for her first year here all the way from England to the United States.

Ash arrives with secrets and lies that are not revealed but are intriguing enough to make you extremely curious.

GOOD GIRLS LIE has a sinister, Gothic feel, and the school has rule after rule.  Ash doesn't know if she can stay here, and she has only been there one day.

Every day is a struggle trying to fit in and learning how to deal with everything that happened back home and at the school both present and past.

The girls are catty and manipulative.  Comments are made by the characters about what someone is going to do, but you never know who is talking.  This definitely keeps up the intrigue and suspense.

As the new school year continues, things get worse and another girl is dead.

GOOD GIRLS LIE is filled with drama, cruel girls, administrators that look the other way, lies, deceit, secrets, betrayal, surprises, and an ending and ending twist you won't see coming.

You won’t want to put it down because it is filled with edge-of-your-seat tension, is chilling, and pretty creepy.  5/5

This book was given to me by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
