Summary

Kemi, a risk taker who's used to getting her way, and Tola, shy and obedient, couldn't be more different, but when boarding school brings the two together, they become inseparable. Their friendship and Tola's morals are put to the test when Kemi is involved in a serious and suspicious accident. Tola must make the difficult decision of telling the truth and obeying the grown-ups or protecting the secret of her newfound friend.

To Lie or Not To Lie?

This was a short and sweet story about two girls meeting at boarding school. A shy girl with a loving family but financially struggling meets a girl acting out to achieve her parent's attention and not just their money. Should Tola tell the truth when Kemi's actions go too far? I really liked the friendship between Tola and Kemi and the codependency they developed with each other. I also liked the underlying messages held within this novel, especially the question, 'should you lie for an easier life?'
