Not only winner of the Costa Children's Book Award 2015 but also the Costa Book of the Year, The Lie Tree is a brilliantly dark and mesmerising novel from Cuckoo Song author Frances Hardinge.

Faith's father has been found dead under mysterious circumstances. As she searches through his belongings, she discovers a strange tree that only grows fruit if you whisper a lie to it. This fruit will then deliver a hidden truth to whoever eats it...

The bigger the lie and the more people who believe it, the bigger the truth that is uncovered. Faith realises how good she is at lying and that this tree may just hold the key to her father's murder... As begins to spread untruths far and wide across her small island community, her tales begin to spiral out of control and she discovers that wherever lies seduce, truths shatter...

The Lie Tree has been shortlisted for 2016's Carnegie Medal.
