The novel follows Lucy Albright as she arrives on the campus of her small California college, hundreds of miles from her Long Island upbringing, in search of a fresh start. She quickly embraces college life and all it has to offer, including Stephen DeMarco - a charming, attractive, complicated, and devastating figure.

Confident and cocksure, Stephen sees something in Lucy that no one else has, and she’s quickly seduced by this vision of herself and the sense of possibility that his attention brings her. Meanwhile, Stephen is determined to forget an incident buried in his past that, if exposed, could ruin him, and his single-minded drive for success extends to winning and keeping Lucy’s heart.

Alternating between Lucy’s and Stephen’s voices, Tell Me Lies follows their connection through college and post-college life in New York City. Readers will be enraptured by the unforgettable characters in this very sexy story. With the psychological insight and biting wit of "Luckiest Girl Alive" and the yearning ambitions and desires of Sweetbitter, this keenly intelligent and supremely resonant novel chronicles the exhilaration and dilemmas of young adulthood and the difficulty of letting go, even when you know you should.
