Candy Sky Tells A Lie by Shanna P. Lowe is the story of a 13-year-old girl who lies to her teachers, parents, and classmates to get out of tests and chores or to get the boy she likes. To cover up her scams, Candy has told more and more lies. Candy’s lies start spiraling out of control when her English Teacher, Mrs. Gulligan, asks too many questions about her lies and reaches out to Candy’s parents to get clarity. It becomes an endless loop of deception, and Candy doesn’t know how to prevent Mrs. Gulligan from meeting her parents and exposing all her lies. Little does Candy know that Mrs. Gulligan has extraordinary powers, and the teacher’s latest mission is to teach Candy Sky a lesson that will change her life forever.

Candy Sky Tells A Lie by Shanna P. Lowe is a candid, relatable, and relevant story. Children have little control over their lives when they are young, and they lie to get themselves out of sticky situations or feel some level of control – it’s part of growing up. Reading this story, I saw traces of Candy’s personality in the faces of my childhood friends and family, and even my younger self. Candy is a kind and good girl trying to find her way, ascertain her identity, and learn the immeasurable and precious value of people that far surpasses the worldly value of affluence. Candy Sky Tells A Lie is a heart-warming, imaginative, funny, and memorable story that teaches youngsters an important life lesson about the consequences of lies. It was a pleasure reading this book.
