NEW RELEASE

THIS LIE WILL KILL YOU

THIS LIE WILL KILL YOU BY CHELSEA PITCHER 

Tell the truth. Or face the consequences.

Clue meets Riverdale in this page-turning thriller that exposes the lies five teens tell about a deadly night one year ago. 

One year ago, there was a party.
At the party, someone died.
Five teens each played a part and up until now, no one has told the truth.

But tonight, the five survivors arrive at an isolated mansion in the hills, expecting to compete in a contest with a $50,000 grand prize. Of course…some things are too good to be true. They were each so desperate for the prize, they didn’t question the odd, rather exclusive invitation until it was too late.

Now, they realize they’ve been lured together by a person bent on revenge, a person who will stop at nothing to uncover what actually happened on that deadly night, one year ago.

Five arrived, but not all can leave.  

 

TEEN PRESS CORPS REVIEWS…

Dumplin’: The movie 

dumplin.jpg

“Sometimes figuring out who you are means understanding that we are a mosaic of experiences. I’m Dumplin’. And Will and Willowdean. I’m fat. I’m happy. I’m insecure. I’m bold.”
Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy


Netflix has done it again – just like To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before this summer, the streaming platform serves up another slam dunk female-led YA adaption that perfectly portrays the message of the novel. I’ll admit after Sierra Burgess is a Loser, I was afraid Netflix would muck up another meant-to-be-body-positive movie, but Dumplin’ is perfectly fat-positive and fat-celebrating.

I’m overjoyed that Julie Murphy finally got the film adaption she deserves, and especially that it was faithful to her book. Overall, Dumplin’ is a feel-good female empowerment joyride with a healthy dose of Dolly Parton. Hairspray meets Miss Congeniality with a Texan twist. Rating: Four Dollys/Five

Haven’t read Dumplin’ yet?
