A Thousand Lies

By Kathy Cassel


For talented teen photographer Bailey Collins, small-town life is good if predictable. Great friends. Loving if overly-protective parents. Academic and artistic success. An amazing new boyfriend.

Until a school field trip to a Chicago photography exhibit turns upside-down everything Bailey has believed about her life. Why are the baby pictures missing from her own past exhibited under another child’s name? Who is this elusive artist whose own identity appears as much a mystery as her exhibit? Or the hostile stranger bizarrely claiming to be Bailey’s birth father?

Above all, if everything about Bailey’s life is a lie, who are the people she has always called Mom and Dad? And if they can’t be trusted, how can she trust the loving God in whom they’ve taught her to place her faith?

As a mountain of unraveling lies place both Bailey and those she cares about in danger, she sets out on a peril-filled quest to expose the truth. Will uncovering her true identity bring the closure and purpose Bailey seeks—or turn out to be the worst mistake of her life?

Book Takeaway:

For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:10 NLT

Why the author wrote this book:

I have a strong passion to write faith-based, issue-based books that will not only entertain the readers but may offer hope and healing. Unlike my first two YA books, this main character hasn't suffered abuse or rejection in the past. Iin fact her life has been pretty good--until she realizes that everything she thought true about herself was a lie. Most teenage girls struggle to find their identity at some point, and hopefully, like Bailey, they will come to realize God has created them with a special plan no matter the circumstances of their lives.
