    Penny is back in her hometown of Bone Lake, Michigan for the summer prepared to write her college essay on the decline of the town after the military pulled their major contract causing the local factory to close several years ago. Her dad doesn't show to pick her up at the airport...

    When I saw the tag line of ?Stranger Things meets Men in Black? I was 100000% here for it. Sadly, it was fairly disappointing for me. I liked Penny well enough. Her struggle to fit back into a small town life felt realistic and I really enjoyed her tenacity. Dex was sort of ado...

    I must admit that this just hasn?t been the best reading year for me so far. Many of my recent reads have turned out to be disappointing to put it kindly. Sadly, The Truth Lies Here was not the exception. The story follows Penny, she needs a big story to include in her college app...

    I excited by the premise of The Truth Lies Here: a girl who wants to get into journalism school and has a father who is a conspiracy theorist. Penny Hardjoy (lol - does she sound like a Bond Girl or what?) leaves Chicago to spend the summer with her father in the small midwestern town ...

    I really liked this creepy book. This book was the perfect Halloween book. The author made it subtle which many thriller books have trouble with. Also that there was more development in characters through the book. Horror books usually focus on the plot than the characters which made m...

    9/14/18 Review: Oh, look, a highly anticipated read that didn't fail me. Call me impressed. As you can see, my pre-read review was allllllllllllllllll the fangirl feels since the premise was literally alllllllllllll of my buzzwords? I was like, all this book needs is some Bigfoot ...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars A throughly compelling coming-of-age story laced with mystery and a touch of Sci-fi. Confession: I read this one by accident, so it will be quite a while before I post my full review. Until then, know that I only have good things to say about this book. Full ...

    I really dug this book. A little bit strange, but a lot of fun, I kept reading up until the wee hours to see how everything was going to be resolved. The sci-fi angle was written in a way that made the book feel grounded. I loved the main character and enjoyed the mystery as well as he...

    ARC provided by the publisher vis Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. 4/5 stars for The Truth Lies Here! I had so much fun reading this book! I'm not going to lie, I requested this book 100% based on the fact that it's set in Michigan. That being said, I could not remember ...

    *Thank you to Edelweiss and the publisher for the ARC in exchange for an honest review!* ?To believe blindly is to get burned, and I was smarter than that now. I knew better.? Along with openly being a love letter to her childhood growing up in Michigan, this book was also a ...

    Penny is supposed to spend summer vacations with her distant supernatural journalist father. When she reaches the small town she grew up before the nasty divorce, he is nowhere. She's sure she's been ignored or forgotten because of some unbelievable story but things in town seem too ou...

    Stranger Things, The X-Files and Men in Black make a compelling mix in The Truth Lies Here. ...

    Penny Hardjoy is spending the summer with her father in Bone Lake, Michigan, while her mother is on sabbatical in Spain. Until she was ten years old, her father was her hero. She went with him on hunts for Bigfoot and loved all of his stories about supernatural creatures. But seeing hi...

    Penny's parents are divorced after she discovered something that destroyed her friendship with her best friend. She gets to spend her vacation time with her father in the small town she grew up, but when she arrives she finds out her father isn't home. At first she believes he is hunti...

    What a strange, fun read. As a cryptid, I want to believe-er, when this book popped up on my shelves, I had to read it. And while the search for the Visitors is a big part of the book, the other story lines of family, and suspicions and truth and lies makes for a very compelling read. ...

    I just read the first two chapters via the Epic Reads Sneak Peak and HOLY CRAP. Does pre-ordering a book two days before release count as not breaking a book ban? Asking for a friend. ...

    (Received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.) I saw this book described as Stranger Things meets Men In Black, which guaranteed that I would read it! I hope to like every book I read, but I...

    Y'all. this book was SO good. I didn't get this ARC from a publisher or anything, I actually got it for free from a little indie bookstore in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina while on Vacation because when you buy from them, you can choose to pick out an ARC. This one seemed the most promisi...

    Plot: Penelope, who prefers the nickname Penny, lost faith in her father, Ike Hardjoy, at ten years old. When she used to believe all the fairy tales he told her, about werewolves, Nessie, fairies, all wandering around the woods waiting to be discovered. When hunting for Bigfoot, and ...

    When Penny thinks of her hometown, she thinks of the local ice cream shop, her childhood crushes and her father, a reporter who specializes in the paranormal. When she was little, she believed in her father and his outlandish claims, but since her parents' divorce and her subsequent mo...

    THE TRUTH LIES HERE by Lindsey Klingele is a young adult, sci-fi novel set in Bone Lake, Michigan. This little town is the last place Penny wants to spend her entire summer, but her mom?s on a sabbatical in Spain and Penny needs quotes from Bone Lake residents for her college admissi...

    This was so disappointing. I was really in the mood for a mystery in genericville, America. The town of Bone Lake should have felt like its own character, and yet the descriptions of it were bareboned. How hard is it to put in descriptions? Tell me what it looks like from the shades an...

    The weather is cooling off (well...sort of), the leaves are beginning to change color, and Pumpkin Spice is reaching epidemic proportions. It is around this time of year when I stop wanting to read fun, beachy stories and begin to reach for those that are more dark and suspenseful. Wit...

    This is a great pick for a rainy, dark night when you want a book that has a bit of a creepy factor to it. Or at any time, but it has that definite feel of a dark night read. It was fairly quick to read, fast paced, it kept my interest through the whole book. It did have some twists I ...

    Penny grew up a bit like Luna Lovegood under the influence of her father, Ike, who writes for one of those conspiracy magazines, that talk about UFOs and bigfoots (bigfeet?). That is until she learns that he doesn't actually believe in any of it and is just trying to make money. After ...

    Full Review below: Many thanks to EdelweissPlus and the publisher for providing me with an eARC for review. All opinions are my own. This was a strong stand-alone science fiction piece. Especially for those readers who enjoy "classic" science fiction: aliens, bigfoot, sightings,...

    A fascinating, pull-you-in story of a girl who's been exiled for the summer while Mom is far away doing scholarly research. Penny grew up feeling like a partner in crime with her alien mystery obsessed dad...Until she wasn't. The reality crash that hit her when she realized his stories...

    #Edelweiss #TheTruthLiesHere #MustReadYA Okay..I'm a sucker for the X-files, so when I read the title and the synopsis I knew I had to read it. The main character Penny has the mystery of trying to find her missing father. Plus, she can't remember certain things and now mysterious "me...

    relatable characters, surprising twists and turns, and while it's definitely a ya novel, it's got enough maturity in the storytelling to offer up something for grown-ups, as well. i was amazed at how quickly i was sucked into klingele's narrative, and how i liked the characters. they'r...

    I enjoyed this Northern Michigan teen X-Files quite a lot. The central mysteries - why are people turning up dead and burned to a crisp? where has Penny's father disappeared to? why do townspeople start acting all body-snatchery when Penny interviews them? - are compelling as they buil...

    Penny is back in her hometown of Bone Lake, Michigan for the summer prepared to write her college essay on the decline of the town after the military pulled their major contract causing the local factory to close several years ago. Her dad doesn't show to pick her up at the airport...

    When I saw the tag line of ?Stranger Things meets Men in Black? I was 100000% here for it. Sadly, it was fairly disappointing for me. I liked Penny well enough. Her struggle to fit back into a small town life felt realistic and I really enjoyed her tenacity. Dex was sort of ado...

    I must admit that this just hasn?t been the best reading year for me so far. Many of my recent reads have turned out to be disappointing to put it kindly. Sadly, The Truth Lies Here was not the exception. The story follows Penny, she needs a big story to include in her college app...

    I excited by the premise of The Truth Lies Here: a girl who wants to get into journalism school and has a father who is a conspiracy theorist. Penny Hardjoy (lol - does she sound like a Bond Girl or what?) leaves Chicago to spend the summer with her father in the small midwestern town ...

    I really liked this creepy book. This book was the perfect Halloween book. The author made it subtle which many thriller books have trouble with. Also that there was more development in characters through the book. Horror books usually focus on the plot than the characters which made m...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars A throughly compelling coming-of-age story laced with mystery and a touch of Sci-fi. Confession: I read this one by accident, so it will be quite a while before I post my full review. Until then, know that I only have good things to say about this book. Full ...

    I really dug this book. A little bit strange, but a lot of fun, I kept reading up until the wee hours to see how everything was going to be resolved. The sci-fi angle was written in a way that made the book feel grounded. I loved the main character and enjoyed the mystery as well as he...

    What a strange, fun read. As a cryptid, I want to believe-er, when this book popped up on my shelves, I had to read it. And while the search for the Visitors is a big part of the book, the other story lines of family, and suspicions and truth and lies makes for a very compelling read. ...

    This was so disappointing. I was really in the mood for a mystery in genericville, America. The town of Bone Lake should have felt like its own character, and yet the descriptions of it were bareboned. How hard is it to put in descriptions? Tell me what it looks like from the shades an...

    Penny Hardjoy is spending the summer with her father in Bone Lake, Michigan, while her mother is on sabbatical in Spain. Until she was ten years old, her father was her hero. She went with him on hunts for Bigfoot and loved all of his stories about supernatural creatures. But seeing hi...

    Penny's parents are divorced after she discovered something that destroyed her friendship with her best friend. She gets to spend her vacation time with her father in the small town she grew up, but when she arrives she finds out her father isn't home. At first she believes he is hunti...

    What a strange, fun read. As a cryptid, I want to believe-er, when this book popped up on my shelves, I had to read it. And while the search for the Visitors is a big part of the book, the other story lines of family, and suspicions and truth and lies makes for a very compelling read. ...

    Y'all. this book was SO good. I didn't get this ARC from a publisher or anything, I actually got it for free from a little indie bookstore in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina while on Vacation because when you buy from them, you can choose to pick out an ARC. This one seemed the most promisi...

    Plot: Penelope, who prefers the nickname Penny, lost faith in her father, Ike Hardjoy, at ten years old. When she used to believe all the fairy tales he told her, about werewolves, Nessie, fairies, all wandering around the woods waiting to be discovered. When hunting for Bigfoot, and ...

    When Penny thinks of her hometown, she thinks of the local ice cream shop, her childhood crushes and her father, a reporter who specializes in the paranormal. When she was little, she believed in her father and his outlandish claims, but since her parents' divorce and her subsequent mo...

    THE TRUTH LIES HERE by Lindsey Klingele is a young adult, sci-fi novel set in Bone Lake, Michigan. This little town is the last place Penny wants to spend her entire summer, but her mom?s on a sabbatical in Spain and Penny needs quotes from Bone Lake residents for her college admissi...

    This was so disappointing. I was really in the mood for a mystery in genericville, America. The town of Bone Lake should have felt like its own character, and yet the descriptions of it were bareboned. How hard is it to put in descriptions? Tell me what it looks like from the shades an...

    The weather is cooling off (well...sort of), the leaves are beginning to change color, and Pumpkin Spice is reaching epidemic proportions. It is around this time of year when I stop wanting to read fun, beachy stories and begin to reach for those that are more dark and suspenseful. Wit...

    This is a great pick for a rainy, dark night when you want a book that has a bit of a creepy factor to it. Or at any time, but it has that definite feel of a dark night read. It was fairly quick to read, fast paced, it kept my interest through the whole book. It did have some twists I ...

    Penny grew up a bit like Luna Lovegood under the influence of her father, Ike, who writes for one of those conspiracy magazines, that talk about UFOs and bigfoots (bigfeet?). That is until she learns that he doesn't actually believe in any of it and is just trying to make money. After ...

    I really dug this book. A little bit strange, but a lot of fun, I kept reading up until the wee hours to see how everything was going to be resolved. The sci-fi angle was written in a way that made the book feel grounded. I loved the main character and enjoyed the mystery as well as he...

    ARC provided by the publisher vis Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. 4/5 stars for The Truth Lies Here! I had so much fun reading this book! I'm not going to lie, I requested this book 100% based on the fact that it's set in Michigan. That being said, I could not remember ...

    Penny Hardjoy is spending the summer with her father in Bone Lake, Michigan, while her mother is on sabbatical in Spain. Until she was ten years old, her father was her hero. She went with him on hunts for Bigfoot and loved all of his stories about supernatural creatures. But seeing hi...

    Penny's parents are divorced after she discovered something that destroyed her friendship with her best friend. She gets to spend her vacation time with her father in the small town she grew up, but when she arrives she finds out her father isn't home. At first she believes he is hunti...

    What a strange, fun read. As a cryptid, I want to believe-er, when this book popped up on my shelves, I had to read it. And while the search for the Visitors is a big part of the book, the other story lines of family, and suspicions and truth and lies makes for a very compelling read. ...

    I just read the first two chapters via the Epic Reads Sneak Peak and HOLY CRAP. Does pre-ordering a book two days before release count as not breaking a book ban? Asking for a friend. ...

    Y'all. this book was SO good. I didn't get this ARC from a publisher or anything, I actually got it for free from a little indie bookstore in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina while on Vacation because when you buy from them, you can choose to pick out an ARC. This one seemed the most promisi...

    Plot: Penelope, who prefers the nickname Penny, lost faith in her father, Ike Hardjoy, at ten years old. When she used to believe all the fairy tales he told her, about werewolves, Nessie, fairies, all wandering around the woods waiting to be discovered. When hunting for Bigfoot, and ...

    When Penny thinks of her hometown, she thinks of the local ice cream shop, her childhood crushes and her father, a reporter who specializes in the paranormal. When she was little, she believed in her father and his outlandish claims, but since her parents' divorce and her subsequent mo...

    THE TRUTH LIES HERE by Lindsey Klingele is a young adult, sci-fi novel set in Bone Lake, Michigan. This little town is the last place Penny wants to spend her entire summer, but her mom?s on a sabbatical in Spain and Penny needs quotes from Bone Lake residents for her college admissi...

    When I saw the tag line of ?Stranger Things meets Men in Black? I was 100000% here for it. Sadly, it was fairly disappointing for me. I liked Penny well enough. Her struggle to fit back into a small town life felt realistic and I really enjoyed her tenacity. Dex was sort of ado...

    I must admit that this just hasn?t been the best reading year for me so far. Many of my recent reads have turned out to be disappointing to put it kindly. Sadly, The Truth Lies Here was not the exception. The story follows Penny, she needs a big story to include in her college app...

    This was so disappointing. I was really in the mood for a mystery in genericville, America. The town of Bone Lake should have felt like its own character, and yet the descriptions of it were bareboned. How hard is it to put in descriptions? Tell me what it looks like from the shades an...

    The weather is cooling off (well...sort of), the leaves are beginning to change color, and Pumpkin Spice is reaching epidemic proportions. It is around this time of year when I stop wanting to read fun, beachy stories and begin to reach for those that are more dark and suspenseful. Wit...

    This is a great pick for a rainy, dark night when you want a book that has a bit of a creepy factor to it. Or at any time, but it has that definite feel of a dark night read. It was fairly quick to read, fast paced, it kept my interest through the whole book. It did have some twists I ...

    Penny grew up a bit like Luna Lovegood under the influence of her father, Ike, who writes for one of those conspiracy magazines, that talk about UFOs and bigfoots (bigfeet?). That is until she learns that he doesn't actually believe in any of it and is just trying to make money. After ...

    Full Review below: Many thanks to EdelweissPlus and the publisher for providing me with an eARC for review. All opinions are my own. This was a strong stand-alone science fiction piece. Especially for those readers who enjoy "classic" science fiction: aliens, bigfoot, sightings,...

    A fascinating, pull-you-in story of a girl who's been exiled for the summer while Mom is far away doing scholarly research. Penny grew up feeling like a partner in crime with her alien mystery obsessed dad...Until she wasn't. The reality crash that hit her when she realized his stories...

    #Edelweiss #TheTruthLiesHere #MustReadYA Okay..I'm a sucker for the X-files, so when I read the title and the synopsis I knew I had to read it. The main character Penny has the mystery of trying to find her missing father. Plus, she can't remember certain things and now mysterious "me...

    relatable characters, surprising twists and turns, and while it's definitely a ya novel, it's got enough maturity in the storytelling to offer up something for grown-ups, as well. i was amazed at how quickly i was sucked into klingele's narrative, and how i liked the characters. they'r...
