The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge

It was not enough.  All knowledge – any knowledge – called to Faith, and there was a delicious, poisonous pleasure in stealing it unseen.

Faith has a thirst for science and secrets that the rigid confines of her class cannot supress.  And so it is that she discovers her disgraced father’s journals, filled with the scribbled notes and theories of a man driven close to madness.  Tales of a strange tree which, when told a lie, will uncover a truth: the greater the lie, the greater the truth revealed to the liar.  Faith’s search for the tree leads her into great danger – for where lies seduce, truths shatter…

Winner of the Costa Book of the Year 2015, The Lie Tree is a dark and powerful novel from universally acclaimed author, Frances Hardinge.

The Lie Tree: Illustrated Edition is packed full of gorgeous black and white illustrations by triple Kate Greenaway Medal winner and Children’s Laureate, Chris Riddell.

Peer & Press Reviews

The Lie Tree is a fantastic story.  It is an important book, not only because it is a great narrative, with great characterization, but because its central message of possibility for an intelligent girl who is out of touch for the age in which she lives is a very important one and relevant for today.

James Heneage, Chair of the Costa Judges

Brilliant, dark, thrilling, utterly original.

Patrick Ness

Throwing evolution, feminism and revenge tragedy together, The Lie Tree is a thrilling, gleamingly involving novel that anyone might enjoy, with gorgeous, lush writing matched by a vividly hooking plot.

Philip Womack, The Literary Review
