There Will be Lies

There Will be Lies - Nick Lake Actual Rating 3.5

Gym Rat doesn’t say, You feel like hooking up? but he does say, You feel like hanging out? so I was close.

She’s snarky, loves reading and baseball, and has an overprotective mother who insists on homeschooling her, and never lets her go anywhere alone. Her weeks follow the same routine, never deviating, never surprising her.

And at the end of it, I go to bed and while I’m sleeping the stage hands of my life rebuild the set exactly the same, the layout of my room, the apartment, so that when I wake up everything is the same, repeating seamlessly.


Except… she’s just been hit by a car.
