Book and Activities: Lies We Tell Ourselves

Lies We Tell Ourselves book cover

It’s 1959. The battle for civil rights is raging. And it’s Sarah’s first day of school as one of the first black students at previously all-white Jefferson High. No one wants Sarah there. Not the Governor. Not the teachers. And certainly not the students. A truly sparkling debut with broad appeal to a young adult/adult crossover audience, tackling powerful issues of race and sexuality.
