When Phoebe, Chloe, and Lily Matlin were born, their mother, who died shortly after their birth, named their special powers: Truth telling, Seeing, and Healing. While her sisters recognized and were able to use their powers from an early age, Phoebe was in high school before her ability to ‘tell truth’ manifested itself, and it did so in a way that most complicated her teen existence.
In Lie to Me by Angela Fristoe the reader follows Phoebe as she deals with the discovery of her hidden ability, and its impact on her friends. Life is never normal for a teenager, but for one of the ‘Freaky Matlins,’ discovering that she has the ability to tell when people are lying complicates her life beyond belief. When her best friend hooks up with a boy that Phoebe ‘suspects,’ but who she can’t catch in a lie, it not only threatens her sanity, it threatens her relationship with Nathan, a boy that she’s had a crush on since she first met him.
A story that is sometimes funny, often filled with angst, Fristoe takes us into the life of an American teen, albeit a teen with a unique ability, and keeps us interested until the end. The ending of Lie to Me was a twist. Although Phoebe satisfactorily settles her own situation, the book closes with a bit of a cliff-hanger regarding her sister, Lily. Thank goodness, Fristoe has written sequels, so we can expect to follow along with each of the sisters in future books.
Kudos to the author for a fascinating ride.

I loved the premise: triplets each with a different gift, and the fact the Phoebe's gift is one that is not common in the typical paranormal reads - she knows when people are lying.

The writing was good. The pacing was great. The author absolutely nailed the relationships. She was able to convey the complex relationships between sisters and the awkward crush/new romance relationship.

I was not expecting such a powerful and important message to be embedded in a paranormal teen novel but I'm happy that the author took the risk and addressed something important. While some of the content was mature, I think this book is perfect for its intended audience: teens/young adults.

I'm definitely interested in continuing the trilogy.
I received a copy of this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

Lie To Me was an okay read, but I think I am a bit too old for it. I read young adult and normally it is fine, but this one the characters were a little...too young. It is just written for a younger audience.

Phoebe is one of triplets who all have gifts. Only hers has never come in. Her sisters have always had their powers since birth, but Phoebe has often felt like the odd one out. She is supposed to be able to tell if people are telling the truth, but she has never been able to before. So she is just like a normal teenage girl. She has had a crush on Nathan forever, but he picked another girl over her way back when. Only now it looks like he is single again...will that mean that she will finally have her chance with him?

And what is going on with her bff Tonya? When Tonya lies to her one day suddenly she can tell. Suddenly her gift seems to be working...only maybe that is not a good thing. Tonya gets super angry that Phoebe calls her out on her lies, in a nicer way, but still. Now Phoebe has to figure out why Tonya is lying and what to do about it.

Through the story we get to see Nathan and Phoebe grow closer, Phoebe try and figure out how to catch Tonya's boyfriend being untruthful, and how to help her friend. This was an alright read, but like I said I think I was a bit too old for it. There were some good after school special moments about abuse and helping victims of it, but it was just...not for me really. Phoebe is an angry teenager and lashes out a lot and just acts like a teenager.

One thing that did bug me was that the grandmother and everyone kept telling Phoebe she needs to learn to control her gift, but she never does.

Late teens especially who like paranormal books will absolutely love this book; one in a trilogy of 3 books. The books are about triplets who each have a paranormal gift. The whole story builds up to a life-changing event for the triplets and their friends that may or may not happen; it was very exciting. The first book puts an emphasis on one of the triplets; the second book puts an emphasis on another triplet; and the third book puts an emphasis on the third triplet, but each book flows into the next very smoothly. I highly recommend this book, and the other 2 which complete this trilogy.

So, a friend recommended this book to me, and WOW, am I glad she did. I absolutely loved everything about this book; Phoebe, Chloe, Lilly, Nathan. I loved all of them. Regardless, if these books are considered a stand alone or not, you must start with this one! Believe me, the ending of this book and the start of the next are the same, but in a different sister's POV. Seriously, this is a MUST read for any YA paranormal lover.

Wow! This is a great start to a series. Phoebe is a very interesting character and you just get sucked into her life. I really liked how the sisters have paranormal abilities but they don't live in a world any different from ours- they are weird and that's all there is to it. This book kind of gets into some serious issues and I wouldn't recommend it to someone looking for a light read, but I thought it was great. :)
