Summary
Compulsive liar Micah promises to tell the truth after revealing that her boyfriend has been murdered
Summary
Micah is an admitted compulsive liar -- and a suspect in the case of her boyfriend's Zach's murder. Now she says she wants to come clean and tell the whole, true story of her family, her special talents, and what happened to Zach. But when someone lies all the time, about everything, it can take a while to get to the real story...and you may not recognize it when you hear it. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
