About The Book

This Lie Will Kill YouTitle: This Lie Will Kill You
Author Chelsea Pitcher
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books
Release Date: December 11, 2018
Genre: Young Adult, Mystery, Thriller
Tell the truth. Or face the consequences.
Clue meets Riverdale in this page-turning thriller that exposes the lies five teens tell about a deadly night one year ago.
One year ago, there was a party.
At the party, someone died.
Five teens each played a part and up until now, no one has told the truth.
But tonight, the five survivors arrive at an isolated mansion in the hills, expecting to compete in a contest with a $50,000 grand prize. Of course…some things are too good to be true. They were each so desperate for the prize, they didn’t question the odd, rather exclusive invitation until it was too late.
Now, they realize they’ve been lured together by a person bent on revenge, a person who will stop at nothing to uncover what actually happened on that deadly night, one year ago.
Five arrived, but not all can leave. Will the truth set them free?
Or will their lies destroy them all?


1. What drew you to writing a thriller? 
I’ve always enjoyed writing mysteries, but thrillers are a little more complicated. Rather than asking readers to unravel something that’s already happened, a thriller tells you something terrible is going to happen, and if the characters don’t realize it in time, their whole world might go up in flames. There’s something really enticing about that. From the very first page, you know something the characters don’t. You have inside information, and if you track down the carefully placed clues, you might just catch the culprit before anyone else!

2. Which is more fun to write, a YA thriller or YA fantasy? 
That’s such a hard question to answer! This book was difficult to write because it has five distinct points of view, and everyone is keeping secrets (from each other and from the reader). But my faerie books were tricky to write too, because they take place in the  human world, the Dark Court and the Bright Court, and each culture has very different beliefs, and very different rules. In terms of enjoyment, though, I think writing mysteries is my favorite thing, and my thriller and fantasy books all have pretty big mysteries in them. I love creating a complicated cast of suspects, and keeping readers guessing until the final pages!

3. What inspired you to write This Lie Will Kill You?
My initial idea was to write a YA thriller inspired by Clue, but of course, by the end of things, the story had morphed into something darker and more twisted. But you can still see the board game’s influence, as well as the influence of movies I grew up watching in the 90s, such as Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer.

4. What are some of your favorite Thrillers? 
I absolutely devoured We Were Liars, and was entirely enthralled by Justine Larbalestier’s Liar. There’s something riveting about reading a book where a huge secret is being kept from you, and you try desperately to figure it out before the characters do.

5. Having written thriller and fantasy novels, is there another genre you would like to explore in the future?
I’d love to be able to write a great, well-researched historical novel, where the reader feels fully immersed in the world. I’m so impressed with authors who are able to transport me back in time.

6. What are you currently working on, if you’re able to tell us?

I really wanted to write a novel where you don’t know if the magical element is real or not until you get to the end. So right now, I’m working on a mystery where a teenager goes missing from summer camp, and his friends have to figure out if he was taken by something supernatural… or if the truth is much more terrifying.

7. What are you currently reading? 
Right now I’m reading This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada. I met Emily at a Keep Families Together rally in Portland and as soon as I heard about her pulse-pounding apocalyptic thriller, I knew I had to get my hands on it.
