Sonny has the bad habit of lying to get herself out of trouble. But when she lands herself in a mess involving her best friend, Amy, and the new boy at school, Ryder, things go too far for Sonny to lie her way out, so there’s only one thing left to do: tell the truth.

It contains:

• Profanity (F-word variants, sh*t, d*ck, b*tch, h*ll, *sshole, and godd*mn)
• Kissing and making out
• The main character tells many lies (obviously)
• Brief mention of a teen taking pot (not actually true)
• One character’s mom stranded her
• A parent had multiple boyfriends and it’s suggested that she had sex with them
• Brief reference to a homosexual couple
• Sonny’s father is in jail for committing crimes (it is mentioned that he stole a car)
• Parents get a divorce
• Beer is mentioned at a party

Lying Out Loud is a companion novel to The DUFF, and it contains much less sexual content, though there is still a lot of profanity. The story is just as engaging, entertaining, and explores deep family issues, and fans of The DUFF will be pleased to find cameo appearances from Bianca and Wesley in this book.
