The True Colour of a Little White Lie

Author(s): Gabriel Bergmoser

Young Adult | Anna's Picks

After a catastrophic attempt to ask out his crush, fourteen-year-old Nelson is desperate for any chance to escape the daily humiliations of his small-town high school. And with his parents taking over a nearby ski lodge, that chance seems to have arrived.

Up at the lodge he discovers a whole new freedom in a world where nobody knows he's a loser and he can be whatever he wants. But reinvention is complicated, especially when a few white lies land you in the middle of an unexpected love triangle which leads you to sign up for a ski race that you're nowhere near good enough for.

As Nelson's new world spirals out of control, he'll slowly discover that no matter where you are, sometimes the hardest thing to run away from is yourself.  

The True Colour of a Little White Lie is another really fun contemporary #OzYA. I read this one in a day: well-plotted and captures the awkwardness of teen years very well!
