The First True Lie Book Review
A full-on tragedy with no glimmer of hope, it’s a good thing for my mental health that this book is a short one. When young Luca’s mother doesn’t wake up one morning, he decides to carry on going to school, feeding the cat, and shopping for groceries on his own. “How many times have I wanted to grow up soon, straight away? Here we go. It’s happened. It might have happened better, but that’s how it is.” This is a story about how the children of single parents deal with loyalty, responsibility, belonging and loss.
