October's Big Library Read: The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett

From October 12-26, OverDrive's Big Library Read is back with the eBook and eAudio format of The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett, by Chelsea Sedoti.

What Happened to Lizzie?

Hawthorn wasn’t trying to insert herself into a missing person investigation. Or, maybe she was. But that’s only because Lizzie Lovett’s disappearance is the one fascinating mystery their sleepy town has ever had. Bad things don’t happen to popular girls like Lizzie Lovett, and Hawthorn is convinced she’ll turn up at any moment—which means the time for speculation is now. So Hawthorn comes up with her own theory for Lizzie’s disappearance. A theory way too absurd to take seriously . . . at first. The more Hawthorn talks, the more she believes. And what better way to collect evidence than to immerse herself in Lizzie’s life? Like getting a job at the diner where Lizzie worked and hanging out with Lizzie’s boyfriend. After all, it’s not as if he killed her—or did he? Told with a unique voice that is both hilarious and heart-wrenching, Hawthorn’s quest for proof may uncover the greatest truth within herself.

Easy Reading

During the Big Library Read, the digital version and audiobook will be available to all library customers to download for free, with no need to be on a waitlist. The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett can be read on major computers and devices. Like all of our eBooks and eAudios, it will automatically expire at the end of the lending period, so there will not be any late fees. 

Making It Social

Author Chelsea Sedoti loves reading and libraries, and she's written a friendly letter of introduction for Big Library Read participants. Want to share your thoughts on the novel?
