The Secret to Lying


Author – Todd Mitchell

Age – 14+

James is smart. But he isn’t sporty or popular or even noticed at his school. When he is given the opportunity to go to an exclusive school for gifted students, he decides to ‘become’ someone else.

The new James is a rebel, pulling pranks with his new mates ‘Heinous’ and ‘Dickie’. But when he shows off one too many times and ends up in hospital, his friends and teachers begin to worry about him. In the struggle to ‘become’ someone, he loses himself. Only someone else going through the same struggle helps him find himself again.

A story about identity and who you want to be.
