    I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT MY BRAIN IS DOING RIGHT NOW I THINK IT RAN AWAY THIS WAS SO SO GOOD So so so so good It was mind twisty and heartbreaking and the writing was simply superb and I just finished it and kind of wanted to hurl it across the room In the BEST possible way Omg why WHYYou are a glorious book dear Daniel Tate and I hate you a little little teeny tiny bit 3 3In the best possible waySo I absolutely thoroughly enjoyed Danny's narration Although his name isn't Daniel Tate obviously because he's some random abused con artist teenager who decided to fake being this rich abducted kid Then he gets all caught up in this super super rich and SUPER SUPER MESSED UP family and kind of falls in love with the idea of being lovedcared for But things are soooooo much darker and twisted than all that I just so felt for Danny I really wanted good things to happen to him because he was a precious cinnamon He spends his whole life pretending to be other people and like he doesn't even KNOW who he isIt was also totally suspenseful And had the cursed idea of having no chapters just sort of scene breaks So basically haha and LOL YOU if you think you can just put it down and go live a life No You get to sit You get to read You get to get emotionally tangled up in hoping Danny's life works out but having a SICK DREAD FEELING the whole time But hey I don't usually actually get THRILLED by thrillersyet this did 500% So I'm notoriously pleasedI also loved how complex and dimensional all the characters were Erm well all the characters except the love interest who was like the most random thrown in and pointless romance ever rolls eyes to the heavens But Danny's stolen family was so interested Completely messed up af But so so interestingAlso the play on the title is marvellous Because view spoilerDaniel Tate is like literally the biggest liar AND then at the end he's like deadso he could be lying in the ground except he was never Daniel Tate and he's narrating in 1st person SO MAYBE HE' SNOT LYING IN THE GROUND AT ALL AFJDKALSD HELP ME MY MINDNNDND IS SO TWISTED UP RIGHT NOW AND I LOVE IT hide spoiler

    I have a serious problem and that is CONTINUING TO READ BOOKS THAT I KNOW WILL RUIN MY LIFEBut like I’m not actively doing anything about it so This story is fricken weird as hell and the narrator is so obviously unreliable its fantastic So the mc is a con artist who lives off the streets and sorta accidently conned his way into a veryundesirable situation Its wild start to finish kids just keep that in mind What I really loved about the book was the WRITING was so easy to read it’s fast paced it had my heart thrashing at moment everything a thriller needs to have There are a lot of characters are they all stand out in their own way I love that The mystery builds along the way and when you figure it out along with Daniel its like AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA for 45 hours Bc hell this book just got morbid uick Also we got some Canadian rep my ice cold heart Another thingthere are no chapters Which usually I would find annoying but for this book it just worked so well nothing was broken up and it was like one stream of conscious and it just made everything so much MORE It also handles a lot of issues at the same time which is great AND THE ENDING I HAVE SO MANY UESTIONS AND NO ANSWERS AND I KEEP THINKING ABOUT THE ENDING AND BE LIKE DUDE WHAT IS THE TRUTH PLZ EXPLAIN IN A FULL FIVE PARAGRAPH ESSAY Also I know a lot of people complained about the romance how it was like unnecessary and ish and I kinda disagree bc even though it wasn’t necessary for the novel it did push things along and add another character in there I liked it And I SOOOOO called the first reveal So totally Called It Right from the start I kinda wish we got to see what happes after bc my mind cannot accept the ending for what it was afjoidafjiudasfads The only reason it’s not a full 5 star rating is bc well it’s great and all but I think it lacked that BEDAZZLEMENT that 5 stars reuire like bruh I ain’t here throwing out 5 stars for nothing you gotta prove yourself That said this was a total memorable thrillermystery and I’m still thinking about it and how it ruined my life ’ “All of my life I'd tried to be invisible and that gave the power to everyone else”4 starshi i'd like a refund on my emotions bc this book was manipulative as hell and i'm emotionally exhausted and i don't know what to think or believe and im going to spend the next 36 hours curled into a little ball in my bed uestioning everything have a good day

    OMGOMGOMG this book is such a twisty mindfuck like I'd think I know what was happening but then it'd throw me off after which I'd change my mind and it would start all over so towards the end I was like WHICH IS IT There's nothing better than a thriller with an unreliable narrator and love the lies pun in the title since all the main character does is lie Ugh totally my kind of a thriller with almost all of the characters being so terrible and the ending is just so 'holy shit it really is that level of sick?' and so satisfying and FEELSY AND GAAAAHLastly this book has NO chapters just these little dividers throughout so you just can't stop reading it which a little rude but I liked the setupI NEED MORE CRISTIN TERRILL BOOKS IN MY LIFE WORLD

    Someday I'll realize that the albeit fake instant gratification YA thrillers offer me IamsocleveramInot doesn't make up for the extreme annoyance at guessing everything early and I'll stop reading them Do you believe me?As for Here Lies Daniel Tate the only reason I finished it was my undying love for All Our Yesterdays Don't be like me

    I loved Cristin's other book so I was dying to get my greedy hands on this one I don't know how much I can say without ruining anything so this will be vague I loved the characters the story the constant guessing and the ending was mind blowing Do yourself a favor and pick it up asap Especially if you like mind fuckery

    UPDATED COMPLETE REVIEW If you can read that synopsis and pretend you’re not 1000 percent interested in this novel then you’re a better liar than Daniel Tate Or accurately the con artist that’s impersonating him The first uestion everyone always asks is what's your name? This simple truth provides a simple start for Terrill’s incredibly addictive and twisted tale of a prematurely jaded impostor who uickly finds himself on the wrong side of the con The story told through the eyes of a nameless unreliable narrator presents the “facts” in a thoughtful intricate and creative fashion which challenges the reader to constantly doubt whether they’ve been duped I know I said I was going to tell you the truth But I lied It's just what I do Frankly you have no one to blame but yourself if you believed me for even a second As someone who usually “ruins the curve” when it comes to plot twists I wasn’t expecting to be mesmerized by this book or its damaged narrator And even though I uncovered some of the dirty details – including the big twist which I won’t reveal for obvious reasons – within the first hundred pages it didn’t take away from my enjoyment of this electrifying ride The layering of surprises and reveals coupled with a cast of broken and flawed characters truly hooked me in and didn’t release me until the very last sentence And let me tell you that last sentencewell let’s just say you should probably buddy read this one so you have someone to scream with immediately Ultimately whether you call yourself a sleuth or not I’d highly recommend adding this thrilling read to your summer TBR As one of my favorite reads of the year I promise you won’t be disappointed do you believe me? Original Review Y'all its been two days and I'm still not confident I know the truthRTC

    Review posted on The Eater of Books blogHere Lies Daniel Tate by Cristin TerrillPublisher Simon Schuster Books for Young ReadersPublication Date June 6 2017Rating 4 starsSource ARC sent by the authorSummary from GoodreadsA young street savvy runaway looking for a place to call home realized he might have conned his way into the wrong family in this fast paced and thrilling novel from award winning author Cristin TerrillWhen ten year old Daniel Tate went missing from one of California's most elite communities he left no trace He simply vanishedSix years later when he resurfaces on a snowy street in Vancouver he's no longer the same boy His sandy hair is darker the freckles are gone and he's initially too traumatized to speak but he's alive His overjoyed family brings him home to a world of luxury and comfort he can barely remember In time they assure him he'll recover his memories; all that matters now is they're together again It's perfect A miracle Except for one thingHe isn't Daniel TateHe's a petty con artist who accidentally stumbled into the scam of a lifetime and he soon learns he's not the only one in the Tate household with something to hide The family has as many secrets as they have millions in the bank and one of them might be ready to kill to keep the worst one buriedWhat I LikedThis book was trippy It's a thriller and mystery novel though it sort of reads as a psychological thriller maybe it is one? We have an unreliable narrator here in the form of Daniel Tate who isn't actually Daniel Tate I really enjoyed this book though I want I couldn't believe it when it endedOur protagonist Daniel Tate isn't actually Daniel Tate One day to escape some trouble at a shelter for homeless kids he gets into a tough spot and he decides to impersonate a boy who has been missing for six years Daniel Tate This boy was ten at the time the fourth child of a very rich family It's the perfect scam for our protagonist especially since he and Daniel would be around the same age and their appearances are pretty similar The family seems to welcome him back though his mother and second older brother are a bit hostile But as each day passes he begins to realize that things are a little too perfect and that he is in too deep to leave again Things in this household are not as they seem and something big is building up waiting to explode Here Lies Daniel Tate is nothing like All Our Yesterdays a book that I read and loved several years ago The two books are so different yet eually as strong standalone novels It's a true mark of an author's creativity when heshe can write across different genres and heshe does it wellFirst can I talk about the title of this book? I love it so much It implies death here lies is a phrase associated with death and cemeteries and tombstones BUT It is perfect because our protagonist Danny is not actually Danny Tate and he is such a liar So it's like here at this place lies not telling the truth Daniel Tate not Daniel Tate I love itI don't know what to call the protagonist other than Danny because we never find out his real name The first thirty or so pages of the book show Danny's life in Vancouver how he is homeless and destitute living off help from shelters and temporary homes with other homeless boys But it doesn't last because he gets into some trouble at one place He does a little research and decides to impersonate Daniel Tate at least for a little bit until he can run again But things get a little out of hand when the family of Daniel Tate believe him take him in and completely integrate him into their lives Danny is a petty con artist by circumstance forced to survive in any way he can but he didn't plan for everything to go so far Danny is a hard character to crack We know from the start that he isn't Daniel Tate we get to see exactly how he chose Daniel Tate but we don't really get to know much about him He is a good actor and a skilled liar He looks out for himself but as the story goes on he finds that he can't just walk away from this familyThe family is made of four siblings not including Daniel and Jessica their mother Patrick and Lex are from Jessica's first marriage and Nicholas Daniel and Mia are from her second marriage Patrick and Lex are both in their twenties; Patrick is a lawyer and handles all of the legal work for Danny's return and Lex is a 24 year old on and off college student who is a stand in mother for Danny since Jessica is not interested in being anyone's mother Mia is eight I think? and the cutest and most accepting sibling Nicholas is seventeen and it's clear that he doesn't like Danny Despite that familial relationships are pretty important in this book and not just in the way you think even if Danny isn't actually related to any of these peopleThe family is dysfunctional at best but Danny grows to care about each family member Until things take a dark turnI won't share too many details about the rest of the story which is about half or I don't want to spoil a thing because it is rather twisted and I was guessing wrong the whole time I love how Terrill set things up that way I'm impressed by how well the mystery aspect of the story was constructed And how much I grew to like many of the characters that was surprising because each one of them had something to hideRomance takes a backseat in this book and so it's there but not really Danny meets a girl and they hang out from time to time Ren is really cool and a little odd in her own way but I like how free spirited she is I wish the romance had gone deeper or further but at the same time I like that the author didn't take it further It makes sense given who Danny isThe ending does not disappoint in that it is just as trippy as the whole book Seriously you will be just as surprised and perplexed Read the book to find out what I meanWhat I Did Not LikeNo real complaints from me This book is very different compared to my usual and I liked it a lotWould I Recommend ItIf you're into thrillers and mystery novels this is a good one It's a combination of both and it will leave you uestioning everything Danny is the most unreliable narrator I've ever come across which was amusing rather than frustrating Like I said above this isn't my usual type of read but I liked it and I wouldn't mind reading books like thisRating4 stars I wonder what the author will come up with next I'm still hoping for a seuel to All Our Yesterdays but I'm actually not crying for a seuel to this book Given the ending I think this book works really well as a standalone But I think I need Terrill stories
