The title summoned fears that it might be a bent book, so I had to examine it. After the first page, I was hooked! I had to find out how and what and why I felt like a detective looking for clues to piece the puzzle together at first, then on the edge of my seat as a spectator anticipating the worst but hoping for the best.

My children heard me cry out in several parts in surprise and dismay a My year-old son brought this home from school last week as required reading for a class. My children heard me cry out in several parts in surprise and dismay as "the bad guys" found the family and made their evil plans.

The "lie" referred to in the title is that the family has to be relocated through the "witness security program" and change their identities in order to protect themselves.

I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised and now have more confidence in my son's teacher and her choice of novels for youth because I think this one's a clincher to keep their attention and they may vicariously experience life lessons through it.

My favorite character was "Sam," the custodian. He felt real, human, and trustworthy from the get go. Oh, if every young man could have a mentor like him! View all 3 comments. Oct 21, Cathleen Ash added it. Have you ever felt like you were living a lie?

Like, right before breaking up with a girlfriend or boyfriend you pretend you still like them? First, his name is Jack, not Zach. Second, some guys broke into his house and duct-taped his mother, his sister and Jack on the couch. When the police found them, they were happy. When the DEA found them a little later, they were shocked. Jack had no idea what was happening or had happened with his Dad to so completely mess up the family.

Jack and his family except for his Dad who's still in jail talking to the DEA fly to parts unknown, start new lives with new names, and live a lie.

Jack meets other kids at school but has to watch what he says: He must avoid this, but it's not easy to blend in when you're worried that anything you say will blow your cover. What parts of the lies he has to live now will hold up? Mar 31, Cara rated it liked it. First off: I'm nobodies mother.

There are some very little details that you have to read very carefully or you will get loss like me.

Throughout the book it gets very intense. This book is like a journal.

Jack has to be the new man of the house because of what his dad has done. In the book you will find out why it is like that and you will be shocked. I was very shocked about what happen because I wasn't expecting it to be how the book was. I was not to happy about how the book ended. I want to get the second book offline.

Oct 31, Stephen rated it liked it Shelves: Zach's Lie is a story of a young man a seventh grader whose life is uprooted when his father is arrested and his family must enter the witness protection program.

He, his mother and his older sister are given new identities and a new life history as well as a new place to live.

Still this is an engaging and entertaining read. While aimed at young adults, there is very little in this book that makes it feel juvenile.

It can be read by adults without feeling that they've gotten into kiddie territory. I recommend it. View 1 comment. Jun 23, Brandi Rae Fong rated it liked it Shelves:So let it expand your mind!

I do fancy reading novels mockingly . Also read my other posts. I have a variety of hobbies, like pickup truck racing.
