About the Book:
Remember how many lies we told, Molly? It’s enough to make my head spin. You were wild when I met you, and I was mad for you. But then something happened. And now you’re gone.
But don’t worry. I’ll find you. I just need to sift through the story of us to get to where you might be. I’ve got places to look, and a list of names.
The police have a list of names, too. See now? There’s another lie. There is only one person they’re really looking at, Molly.
And that’s yours truly.

Excerpt from WE TOLD SIX LIES:
The idea that I had anything to do with Molly going missing is ludicrous. The mere thought of her gone causes the room to spin.
When my breathing grows too shallow, I focus on Molly. She brings me back. Centers my feet on the floor, toes curled with determination. Molly and her wide, infectious smile. Molly and her hands, forever reaching for me. Molly and her deceptively soft eyes, so green they’d sit beside a crocodile on the color chart.
Where are you, Molly?
And tears filled your eyes. You bit down on your anger, your entire body shaking in my hands. You weren’t mad at this memory you were holding, I don’t think. You were mad because you didn’t want me to see the emotion on your face.
But I saw it anyway.
And though I didn’t know who you were talking about or what had happened, I said, “I won’t let you go, Molly.”
It was the right thing to say.
I could see it in the lift of your shoulders.
I raised my hands to your jawline. I couldn’t wait a second longer, Molly. I just couldn’t. My thumbs drew circles on your cheeks as I pulled your face closer. If the world had split between our feet, asphalt falling to the center of the earth, I would still have found a way to hold onto you.
“You’ll be sorry,” you whispered.
I brought my mouth to yours.
You pushed your body against mine, and I wrapped my arm around your waist, and we just kind of…fell into each other. It was the first time we’d kissed slowly, my thumb tracing your jawline, your hands warm against my upper back. Our lips moved softly, tongues softer still, and when our kiss ended quietly, we kept our arms around each other, your cheek on my chest, my chin resting on your head. In that one perfect moment, we could have crashed into the sun and I wouldn’t have noticed the heat.
I released you at last, and you said, “Say it again.”
And I said, “I’ll never let you go.”
And you laid your head against me.
I thought of myself as an animal then. As your protector. You held my leash in your soft white hands. If someone upset you, all you had to do was release me, and I’d have torn them to pieces just to see you smile.

I've heard good things about this book! The cover is cool; I like the color contrast. The synopsis reminds me a little bit of The Lying Game by Ruth Ware.
I love the bold contrast of the cover. I've heard alot about this book. The suspense is already pulling me in from the summary.
A really intriguing cover, and one that immediately catches my eye. The synopsis -- and the excerpt -- have me wanting to read more.
