The novel Trust Me, I'm Lying is a mystery novel by Mary Elizabeth Summer.

Julep Dupree tells lots of lies. She's a grifter, a con artist, and a master of disguise. She is sophomore at a swanky high school, St Agatha High in Chicago. Trying to keep an A+ (okay A-) average at school.

She comes home one day with her whole apartment turned upside-down with her father missing. Finding different clues that her dad probably left for her to find him. Getting help from prince-charming, Tyler Richland, and her trusty sidekick and hacker, Sam. Julep struggles to find her dad with hints of evidence. Going through a maze of creepy stalkers, hit attempts, and family secrets. She goes all around town to find the clues, and skipping school. Along the way Julep gets into a gun fight and sneaking past different people, and getting caught by polices and stalkers. Will she ever know what the clues mean, and will she ever find her dad? This novel has a lot parts where you feel like your inside the book. I look forward reading the second book in the series.
