What I Saw and How I Lied
by Judy Blundell


It’s 1947 and World War II is over. Life is good for Evie, her mother Beverly, and her step-father Joe. They live Grandma Glad who is anything but glad.

Joe decides they should go to Palm Beach, Fl for a vacation. After a long, grueling drive they arrive only to discover that Palm Beach is practically deserted this time of year. They check into a nice hotel and meet the Graysons and then Peter, a private who served with Joe during the war.

Fifteen year old Evie falls in love with Peter. He’s older, charming, handsome, and irresistible.

This fast paced novel reveals secrets and lies. Things are not what they seem to be. Evie will never be the same again. 

When I finished What I Saw and How I lied, I had a wow moment. And I wished I could write something that fabulous.
