The Lie, by Chad Kultgen, is a novel about three freshmen in college, Kyle, Heather, and Brett.
Kyle is your typical nice, smart, honest guy, but he is kind of a loser. Heather is the usual slutty, materialistic, sorority bitch who’s main goal is to marry someone rich. Brett is Kyle’s best friend and he is the complete opposite of him. He is hilariously rude, pervertedly disgusting, filthy rich, and thinks that women are the source of all evil.
In the beginning, Kyle helps a drunken Heather by letting her sleep in his room. Kyle immediately falls for her and tries to make Heather his girlfriend, but his best friend Brett has an immediate suspicion and warns Kyle of her evil. Kyle blatantly ignores Brett’s advice and makes Heather his girlfriend anyway. Little did he know that Brett was right about everything.
This book gives you some insight to how college students think and act. The Lie is a great book that will make you laugh, anger you, and keep you interested until the very end. I strongly suggest you read this book.
