Another solo review by Phoebe!
The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett, by Chelsea Sedoti, was an OK book. I got it as an ARC back in 2016, but it has since come out. The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett is about a girl named Hawthorn who becomes interested in a case of a missing girl from her town, Lizzie Lovett. She didn’t really know Lizzie Lovett, and didn’t really like her, but she tries to solve the case anyway.
One of the things I didn’t like about this book was how much of a romance it is. I went into the book thinking it would be a mystery, but a good portion of the book is about Hawthorn’s relationship with Lizzie Lovett’s boyfriend Enzo. Everybody thinks that Enzo killed Lizzie Lovett because she disappeared during the night, when the two were out camping. However, Hawthorn doesn’t think that, so she finds Enzo, and they start a relationship.
The other thing that I didn’t like about this book was a little more personal. Hawthorn’s mom was making her family go vegan. Hawthorn was always making rude comments about the food and how gross it was. I have been vegan for my whole life, so reading this kind of hurt. I personally don’t know what non-vegan food tastes like, but I can’t imagine it’s that bad, even for people who are trying it for the first time.
The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett is an okay book, but I don’t know if I would recommend it. I guess if you are looking for a book that has both mystery and romance, then this is the book for you! But, I definitely don’t recommend this to any fellow vegans out there.
