Introducing ‘Lies We Tell Ourselves’

Lies We Tell Ourselves

Hi! I’m Robin Talley. I write young adult fiction, usually about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender characters.

My first novel, Lies We Tell Ourselves, was released in September 2014 by Harlequin Teen. It’s about a black girl and a white girl who fall in love in 1959 Virginia while their school is being desegregated for the first time. It’s a Junior Library Guild selection and a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award for Children’s/Young Adult Fiction.

Here’s what you need to know about it.
