Synopsis: Kaedyn is only sixteen when her mother dies of cancer and she finds herself drowning in her sorrow.

Believing it is in her best interest, Kaedyn’s father sends her to live with her sister Kallie. But both Kallie and Kaedyn are about to learn that there are even more painful experiences than losing their mother, and that there can be dangerous consequences to withdrawing from the people they love most: each other.

    This touching debut novel addresses difficult and still taboo subjects without glorifying or simplifying them.
    Written from the perspective of Kaedyn and her adult sister, it breaks away from the formula by showing the complexities within a family rather than the black and white ”hurting kid ignored by family” simplicity often favored in YA fiction.
    It is refreshing to see this story doesn’t tie everything neatly in a bow. There are no easy answers and Lies That Bind takes an unflinching but compassionate look at that truth.
