Family Lies proved true to its title. The entanglement that accompanies the family's given social status with personal hopes and desires was intriguing. The attention given to character development (both main and secondary) provided enough details to imagine each character- what they looked like, what they were feeling, what direction life was pointing them in. As with the characters, the details and descriptions given to the story's setting made me feel as though I was traveling with each character on their given journey. The storyline held my attention the entire way through and left me hoping for more. I will definitely be watching for the next book!
