I Know Lucy
by Melissa Pearl

I Know Lucy, the first book in Melissa Pearl's Fugitive series, is ON SALE for only $0.99. Also available: Set Me Free (NEW RELEASE; read my blog post). 

Lucy Tate is on the run. After witnessing the brutal murder of her parents, she's spent five years in hiding - taking on different personas and faking her way through life. The authorities can't be trusted, so she remains in the shadows, always one beat ahead of the man who is forever hunting her. That is, until she meets Zach Schultz, a senior at Monte Vista High and the one guy she can’t bear to leave. Suddenly her natural instincts to lie, cheat, and run are overshadowed by something else ... the desire to stay and perhaps, love. It’s her one shot at a normal life.
Curious by nature, Zach is immediately drawn to the new girl at school. How can a person look both confident and vulnerable all in the same moment? Determined to figure Lucy out, he sets out to unravel the mystery that is her and soon finds himself caught up in a cat and mouse game. For the first time in his life he is faced with the reality that the truth can no longer set him free ... if anything, it's going to get him killed.


I Know Lucy is a captivating novel with a fantastic and eclectic crew of characters. There is a lot of dark suspense, mixed with a little romance, and few laughs, and more than a few thrills.
I don't think it matters what age you are, if you enjoy suspense novels - you will love this book about a wily and resourceful teenager, who is constantly on the run.
