Even When You Lie to Me
by Jessica Alcott

Charlie is going into her senior of high school never being good enough or pretty enough for her perfectionist mom, and never being thin enough to get a boyfriend like her gorgeous friend Lila. When school starts and she meets the new, charismatic English teacher Mr. Drummond, Charlie feels an instant connection with him. After being ignored for 18 years it feels great to have a handsome teacher pay special attention to her, making everyone else in school jealous of Charlie for the first time.  Life gets exciting and dangerously complicated when pretty soon Charlie realizes she may not be the only one with a crush in the classroom. This intense story takes the reader on a year-long rollercoaster journey with an unexpectedly witty character that any late-bloomer can relate to.
