Contests and Giveaways


Call it following your intuition or trusting your gut, sometimes we make decisions because deep down they feel like the right choice.

For Fia in Perfect Lies, trusting her gut is what she does best. Well, maybe tied with kicking-butt and taking names… Born with perfect instincts, Fia has always relied on her intuition to tell her what’s right.

This explosive sequel to Mind Games, which New York Times bestselling author Holly Black called “a brutal, exciting gem of a book,” is perfect for fans of Sara Shepard’s The Lying Game series. Perfect Lies is a lightning-fast, wickedly smart tale of two sisters trapped in a web of deceit.

For years, Annie and Fia have been in an endless battle for survival against the Keane Foundation. Now the sisters have found allies who can help them escape. But Annie’s visions of the future and Fia’s flawless instincts can’t always tell them who to trust. The sisters can only rely on each other—and even their extraordinary gifts may not be enough to save them.
