The Lies You Told by Harriet Tyce

Sadie Roper was definitely not looking for a new start when she was thrust into a move due to her husband telling her to leave. She was hoping things weren’t as bad as all that but heads back to the life she left behind. The stipulations of her mothers will are a must now that she has nothing. No husband. No job. She moves into her childhood home and registers her daughter, Robin, to the school she once attended, as per the stipulation of the will.

The horrible mothers of this school start in on her from the moment of their arrival. Sadie has to go back to work which is another hint the ladies hold against her. She struggles to help Robin fit in and help her get through the evil pranks.

Then, Sadie shares that she once went to this school and they change their attitude towards her and Robin immediately. The strangeness of it all puts Sadie on edge but she just wants happiness for her daughter and that means making these girls Robin’s friends. While she works, the mothers eagerly take care of Robin after school. This is a great relief but also a bit concerning, but with no other alternatives she gives.

The competitiveness of the school is hard on the children. This brings anger and resentment. As the story progressed, I found myself guessing at who and why but I didn’t get it until the end. It was good.

If you enjoy physiological thrillers this might be up your alley. I think I disliked the whole husband, the client, then the school drama. I think if they would have had fewer side plots and just stuck to Sadie’s struggle getting settled with her daughter, instead I found there was so much going on without much of anything exciting happening.
