One Great Lie, Paperback / softback Book

One Great Lie Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Four starred reviews!A "quietly triumphant" (Horn Book Magazine) and atmospheric YA story of romance, mystery, and power about a young woman discovering her strength in lush, sultry Venice-from the Printz Honor-winning author of A Heart in a Body in the World. When Charlotte wins a scholarship to a writing workshop in Venice with the charismatic and brilliant Luca Bruni, it's a dream come true.

Writing is her passion, she loves Bruni's books, and going to that romantic and magical sinking city gives her the chance to solve a long-time family mystery about a Venetian poet deep in their lineage, Isabella Di Angelo, who just might be the real author of a very famous poem. Bruni's villa on the eerie island of La Calamita is extravagant-lush beyond belief, and the other students are both inspiring and intimidating.

Venice itself is beautiful, charming, and seductive, but so is Luca Bruni.

As his behavior becomes increasingly unnerving, and as Charlotte begins to unearth the long-lost work of Isabella with the help of sweet, smart Italian Dante, other things begin to rise, too-secrets about the past...and secrets about the present. As the events of the summer build to a shattering climax, Charlotte will be forced to confront some dark truths about the history of powerful men-and about the determination of creative girls.
