The Lying Tree
Jamie Bryce is a lonely, eleven-year-old boy whose mum has walked out on him. When he and his dad move away to start a new life without her, Jamie decides no one’s ever going to know the truth. It’ll be easy. He’ll never tell anyone anything about himself – especially not that his mum didn’t love him enough to stay. If someone asks, he can make it all up. He can be whoever he wants to be, invent an entire life.
But keeping up with all his lies doesn’t turn out to be that simple. And after a curious meeting with a stranger one day after school, things take a decidedly sinister turn…
Written by the award-winning creators of It’s A Boy!, The Lying Tree is the gripping story of what happened when a young boy’s lies became his life.
