Schuster Books for Young ReadersPublication Date June 6, 2017Rating 4 starsSource ARC sent by the authorSummary from Goodreads A young, street savvy runaway looking for a place to call home realized he might have conned his way into the wrong family in this fast paced and thrilling novel from award winning author Cristin Terrill.When ten year old Daniel Tate went missing from one of California s most elite communities, he left no trace He simply vanished.Six years later, when he resurfaces on a snowy street in Vancouver, he s no longer the same boy His sandy hair is darker, the freckles are gone, and he s initially too traumatized to speak, but he s alive His overjoyed family brings him home to a world of luxury and comfort he can barely remember In time, they assure him, he ll recover his memories all that matters now is they re together again It s perfect A miracle Except for one thing.He isn t Daniel Tate.He s a petty con artist who accidentally stumbled into the scam of a lifetime, and he soon learns he s not the only one in the Tate household with something to hide The family has as many secrets as they have millions in the bank, and one of them might be ready to kill to keep the worst one buried.What I Liked This book was trippy It s a thriller and mystery novel, though it sort of reads as a psychological thriller maybe it is one We have an unreliable narrator here, in the form of Daniel Tate who isn t actually Daniel Tate I really enjoyed this book, though I wantI couldn t believe it, when it ended Our protagonist, Daniel Tate , isn t actually Daniel Tate One day, to escape some trouble at a shelter for homeless kids, he gets into a tough spot, and he decides to impersonate a boy who has been missing for six years Daniel Tate This boy was ten at the time, the fourth child of a very rich family It s the perfect scam for our protagonist, especially since he and Daniel would be around the same age, and their appearances are pretty similar The family seems to welcome him back, though his mother and second older brother are a bit hostile But as each day passes, he begins to realize that things are a little too perfect, and that he is in too deep to leave again Things in this household are not as they seem, and something big is building up, waiting to explode Here Lies Daniel Tate is nothing like All Our Yesterdays, a book that I read and loved several years ago The two books are so different, yet equally as strong standalone novels It s a true mark of an author s creativity, when he she can write across different genres, and he she does it well.First, can I talk about the title of this book I love it so much It implies death here lies is a phrase associated with death and cemeteries and tombstones BUT It is perfect because our protagonist, Danny , is not actually Danny Tate, and he is such a liar So it s like, here at this place lies not telling the truth Daniel Tate not Daniel Tate I love it I don t know what to call the protagonist other than Danny , because we never find out his real name The first thirty or so pages of the book show Danny s life in Vancouver, how he is homeless and destitute, living off help from shelters and temporary homes with other homeless boys But it doesn t last, because he gets into some trouble at one place He does a little research and decides to impersonate Daniel Tate, at least for a little bit, until he can run again But things get a little out of hand when the family of Daniel Tate believe him, take him in, and completely integrate him into their lives Danny is a petty con artist by circumstance, forced to survive in any way he can, but he didn t plan for everything to go so far Danny is a hard character to crack We know from the start that he isn t Daniel Tate we get to see exactly how he chose Daniel Tate, but we don t really get to know much about him He is a good actor, and a skilled liar He looks out for himself, but as the story goes on, he finds that he can t just walk away from this family.The family is made of four siblings not including Daniel and Jessica, their mother Patrick and Lex are from Jessica s first marriage, and Nicholas, Daniel, and Mia are from her second marriage Patrick and Lex are both in their twenties Patrick is a lawyer and handles all of the legal work for Danny s return, and Lex is a 24 year old on and off college student who is a stand in mother for Danny, since Jessica is not interested in being anyone s mother Mia is eight I think and the cutest and most accepting sibling Nicholas is seventeen and it s clear that he doesn t like Danny Despite that, familial relationships are pretty important in this book and not just in the way you think , even if Danny isn t actually related to any of these people.The family is dysfunctional at best, but Danny grows to care about each family member Until things take a dark turn.I won t share too many details about the rest of the story which is about half orI don t want to spoil a thing, because it is rather twisted and I was guessing wrong the whole time I love how Terrill set things up that way I m impressed by how well the mystery aspect of the story was constructed And how much I grew to like many of the characters that was surprising, because each one of them had something to hide.Romance takes a backseat in this book, and so it s there but not really Danny meets a girl and they hang out from time to time Ren is really cool and a little odd in her own way, but I like how free spirited she is I wish the romance had gone deeper or further, but at the same time, I like that the author didn t take it further It makes sense, given who Danny is.The ending does not disappoint, in that it is just as trippy as the whole book Seriously, you will be just as surprised and perplexed Read the book to find out what I mean What I Did Not Like No real complaints from me This book is very different compared to my usual, and I liked it a lot Would I Recommend It If you re into thrillers and mystery novels, this is a good one It s a combination of both and it will leave you questioning everything Danny is the most unreliable narrator I ve ever come across, which was amusing, rather than frustrating Like I said above, this isn t my usual type of read, but I liked it and I wouldn t mind readingbooks like this Rating 4 stars I wonder what the author will come up with next I m still hoping for a sequel to All Our Yesterdays, but I m actually not crying for a sequel to this book Given the ending, I think this book works really well as a standalone But I think I needTerrill stories I CALLED IT I CALLED ALL OF IT HAHAHAHA.That was brilliant. I have a serious problem and that is CONTINUING TO READ BOOKS THAT I KNOW WILL RUIN MY LIFEBut like I m not actively doing anything about it so This story is fricken weird as hell and the narrator is so obviously unreliable its fantastic So the mc is a con artist who lives off the streets and sorta, accidently, conned his way into a very undesirable situation Its wild start to finish kids, just keep that in mind What I really loved about the book was the WRITING was so easy to read, it s I have a serious problem and that is CONTINUING TO READ BOOKS THAT I KNOW WILL RUIN MY LIFEBut like I m not actively doing anything about it so This story is fricken weird as hell and the narrator is so obviously unreliable its fantastic So the mc is a con artist who lives off the streets and sorta, accidently, conned his way into a very undesirable situation Its wild start to finish kids, just keep that in mind What I really loved about the book was the WRITING was so easy to read, it s fast paced, it had my heart thrashing at moment, everything a thriller needs to have There are a lot of characters are they all stand out in their own way, I love that The mystery builds along the way and when you figure it out along with Daniel its like AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA for 45 hours Bc hell, this book just got morbid quick Also, we got some Canadian rep my ice cold heart Another thing there are no chapters Which usually I would find annoying but for this book it just worked so well, nothing was broken up and it was like one stream of conscious and it just made everything so much MORE It also handles a lot of issues at the same time which is great AND THE ENDING I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS AND NO ANSWERS AND I KEEP THINKING ABOUT THE ENDING AND BE LIKE DUDE WHAT IS THE TRUTH PLZ EXPLAIN IN A FULL FIVE PARAGRAPH ESSAY Also I know a lot of people complained about the romance, how it was like unnecessary and ish and I kinda disagree bc even though it wasn t necessary for the novel, it did push things along and add another character in there, I liked it And I SOOOOO called the first reveal So totally Called It Right from the start I kinda wish we got to see what happes after bc my mind cannot accept the ending for what it was afjoidafjiudasfads The only reason it s not a full 5 star rating is bc well, it s great and all but I think it lacked that BEDAZZLEMENT that 5 stars require, like bruh I ain t here throwing out 5 stars for nothing, you gotta prove yourself That said, this was a total memorable thriller mystery and I m still thinking about it and how it ruined my lifeAll of my life I d tried to be invisible, and that gave the power to everyone else 4 stars hi, i d like a refund on my emotions bc this book was manipulative as hell and i m emotionally exhausted and i don t know what to think or believe and im going to spend the next 36 hours curled into a little ball in my bed questioning everything have a good day OMGOMGOMG this book is such a twisty mindfuck like I d think I know what was happening but then it d throw me off after which I d change my mind and it would start all over so towards the end I was like WHICH IS IT There s nothing better than a thriller with an unreliable narrator and love the lies pun in the title since all the main character does is lie Ugh, totally my kind of a thriller with almost all of the characters being so terrible and the ending is just so holy shit, it really is OMGOMGOMG this book is such a twisty mindfuck like I d think I know what was happening but then it d throw me off after which I d change my mind and it would start all over so towards the end I was like WHICH IS IT There s nothing better than a thriller with an unreliable narrator and love the lies pun in the title since all the main character does is lie Ugh, totally my kind of a thriller with almost all of the characters being so terrible and the ending is just so holy shit, it really is that level of sick and so satisfying and FEELSY AND GAAAAH.Lastly, this book has NO chapters, just these little dividers throughout so you just can t stop reading it which a little rude but I liked the setup.I NEED MORE CRISTIN TERRILL BOOKS IN MY LIFE, WORLD I loved Cristin s other book, so I was dying to get my greedy hands on this one I don t know how much I can say without ruining anything, so this will be vague I loved the characters, the story, the constant guessing, and the ending was mind blowing Do yourself a favor and pick it up asap Especially if you like mind fuckery.

read that synopsis and pretend you re not 1000 percent interested in this novel then you re a better liar than Daniel Tate Oraccurately the con artist that s impersonating himThe first question everyone always asks is, what s your nameThis simple truth provides a simple start for Terrill s incredibly addictive and twisted tale of a prematurely jaded impostor who quickly finds himself on the wrong side of the con The story, told through the eyes of a nameless, unreliable narrator, presents the facts in a thoughtful, intricate, and creative fashion, which challenges the reader to constantly doubt whether they ve been dupedI know I said I was going to tell you the truth But I lied It s just what I do Frankly, you have no one to blame but yourself if you believed me for even a secondAs someone who usually ruins the curve when it comes to plot twists, I wasn t expecting to be mesmerized by this book or its damaged narrator And even though I uncovered some of the dirty details including the big twist, which I won t reveal for obvious reasons within the first hundred pages, it didn t take away from my enjoyment of this electrifying ride The layering of surprises and reveals coupled with a cast of broken and flawed characters truly hooked me in and didn t release me until the very last sentence And let me tell you that last sentencewell, let s just say you should probably buddy read this one so you have someone to scream with immediately Ultimately, whether you call yourself a sleuth or not, I d highly recommend adding this thrilling read to your summer TBR As
