  • ‘A wonderful edge of your seat thriller that will have you guessing all the way to the end.’ – Carrie on Goodreads

    A haunting YA thriller you won't be able to put down, White Lies is a boarding school story – with a shockingly dark twist.

    Everybody hurts

    For Abigail, a new school could be the fresh start she so desperately needs. With her parents in the army and her sister Beth too far away to run to, she knows this year needs to be different. She's never been part of the cool crowd and for the first time Abby wants to fit in. And all it takes is just one little white lie…because some truths are too painful to share.

    Everybody lies

    But at Cotswold Community College, Abby isn't the only one with a past she'd rather forget. And when she stumbles across a closely-guarded secret, Abigail realises that her one little white lie could reveal everything she’s worked so hard to hide…

    What readers are saying about White Lies

    'I LOVED this one… there is a dark edge to the narrative, a scary feel to some of the events and just that little *something* that touches you on an emotional level when reading that grips you utterly… Add in some truly spooky and dark dealings, a touch of inspiration and a killer twist that I never once saw coming and you have an imaginative, clever and intelligent thriller that just happens to be in the Young Adult market. Pish to that, its better than any one of 150 girl books you might read this year or did last…' – Liz Loves Books

    ‘The book was a easy and fast read that was layered with suspense making it captivating and gripping that I had to finish it and know what was happening. I thought I had it all figured out… but after reaching the end, I realized how wrong I was. It is an eerie mystery slash slightly horror story that plays with your mind and imagination.’ – Joy on Goodreads

    ‘I couldn't put it down and it was short enough for me to whizz through… I still couldn't believe the unbelievable dark twist that this book took. It was so gripping and surreal that I'm still captivated by it! I loved the writing style of this author and it's made me incredibly eager to read more books by Ms. Markham.’ – Connie on Goodreads

    ‘This is a mystery story with some hints of horror that really plays with your mind, especially when you think you’ve got it all figured out. It sets you on edge and makes you really question what is going on – if you’re a fan of the Red Eye series or just general horror/thriller books then this one’s for you!’ – Maia and a Little Moore

    ‘This wasn't at all what I was expecting, but I was pleasantly surprised. The first thing to catch my attention was Zoe's writing style. Every word seemed to flow with the next making me want to keep reading. Zoe does an incredible job of bringing the character's alive.’ – Rosalie Reyes's review on Goodreads
