Ten things you didn't know about Why I Must Lie and M. M. Lake
The supernatural characters in the Why I Must Lie series are more like superheros than anything dark or scary.
The main character may seem like somewhat of a normal teen, but she belongs to a unique and divine species.
The love interest in the Why I Must Lie series is not a "bad boy". Who said only bad boys could be alluring?
M. M. Lake laughs and cries when she writes, completely engrossed in the story-creating process. Is that normal? :)
Readers won't be embarrassed to share the series, or their interest in the series, with their moms, nieces, or co-workers. Think PG.
The pictures in the pupil of the eyes on the front covers symbolize characters in the book.
M. M. Lake has a third book in mind but has only jotted down ideas...so far.

M. M. Lake delivers the awaited sequel to Why I Must Lie.
Too anxious to wait another second, I went off on a rant. "Tell me what's wrong with me! Why can't guys kiss me? I'm not hormone-crazed. I just need to know!" I buried my head in my hands and wept. "Please tell me," I muttered through sobs.
"Mia," Sera said softly, "there is nothing wrong with you."
"Right!" I shot back, startling her. "First with Gabe this afternoon." Sera jerked her head toward her brother. "Then twice with Ken tonight." I brushed the tears from my face.
Eva's petite mouth curled slightly. "You've been busy today."
