When a little lie turns into a more serious one, will Lily and Darby' s friendship survive-or is it the end of the Rizzlerunk Club? Lily Lattuga finally feels settled after moving to a new town and starting the fourth grade at a new school. She gets to live right across the lake from her best friend, Darby, who loves frogs and drawing just as much as Lily does. They even have their own club: the Rizzlerunks. But then things start going wrong: the new boy in class is a liar and a bully, and Darby begins acting strangely-she even breaks the Rizzlerunk pledge of honesty and gets Lily into trouble! And when something bad happens to one of the classroom rats on Lily' s watch, Lily finds herself caught in a lie with no clear way out. She realizes a little lie can snowball into a huge one that sucks in every good feeling and hurts others terribly. What' s a Rizzlerunk to do? Humorous, heartfelt, and full of illustrations that bring Lily' s charmingly candid voice to life, this second book in the Rizzlerunk Club series will resonate with anybody who has ever found it hard to do the right thing.
Rounds of truth or dare turn into real tests for fourth grade best friends trapped by their lies to one other. . . . Will make readers both laugh and think. . . and what could be better than that? -Kirkus Reviews On the book jacket for ' Big Bad Lies,' [Patricelli] states that ' in fourth grade, I lied to my best friend - and she lied to me. I remember the horrible feeling of not confessing. . . Now we can laugh about it, and it' s a story I' ve always wanted to write. I hope my readers will laugh and learn. ' She can consider her mission accomplished. -The Florida Times Union
