Six Truths and a Lie

Six Muslim teens are falsely accused of a deadly attack in this timely and harrowing examination of America’s justice system, perfect for fans of Angie Thomas and Samira Ahmed.

As fireworks pop off at a rowdy Fourth of July bonfire party, an explosion off the California coast levels an oil rig—resulting in chaos and worse, murder.
At the center are six Muslim teens – six patriots, six strangers, and six suspects.  

An old soul caught in the wrong place. An aspiring doctor. An influencer with a reputation to protect. A perfect daughter with secrets to hide. A soccer star headed for Stanford. An immigrant in love. Each with something to hide and everything to lose.

Faced with accusations of terrorism, The Six are caught in a political game that will pit them against each other in exchange for exoneration. They must choose: frame each other to guarantee their own independence or expose their secrets to earn back freedom for them all.

From NOVL Nation

“This should be a required reading for high schoolers. It shows how bias and discrimination exist within even the highest of authorities, as well as the media. The entire story was an outrage and I loved that we saw it through Muslim teen’s perspectives. There was a twist that I was not expecting, that made the story even more powerful and heartbreaking.”

–Stacy, @stacy40pages

“This is definitely one of those books people will be talking about for years and I’m so excited to have read it!”
