Goode girls don’t lie…
Perched atop a hill in the tiny town of Marchburg, Virginia, The Goode School is a prestigious prep school known as a Silent Ivy. The boarding school of choice for daughters of the rich and influential, it accepts only the best and the brightest. Its elite status, long-held traditions and honor code are ideal for preparing exceptional young women for brilliant futures at Ivy League universities and beyond. But a stranger has come to Goode, and this ivy has turned poisonous.
In a world where appearances are everything, as long as students pretend to follow the rules, no one questions the cruelties of the secret societies or the dubious behavior of the privileged young women who expect to get away with murder. But when a popular student is found dead, the truth cannot be ignored. Rumors suggest she was struggling with a secret that drove her to suicide.
But look closely…because there are truths and there are lies, and then there is everything that really happened.
J.T. Ellison’s pulse-pounding new novel examines the tenuous bonds of friendship, the power of lies and the desperate lengths people will go to to protect their secrets.


“Nonstop action and a delicious final twist.” —★ Booklist, Starred Review

“Seamlessly plotted.” —Publishers Weekly

“Coulter and Ellison are a thriller writer’s dream team, and The Last Second is some of their best work yet.“ —The Real Book Spy

Ash Carlisle knows how to get what she wants, what she needs, maybe even what she deserves. Good Girls Lie is a twisting, turning road paved with carefully crafted deceit and destruction. This is my first book by J.T. Ellison and most certainly will not be my last. The chill factor is through the rafters. I loved the intensity and level of detail given to the reader. Good Girls Lie is a YA thriller checking all my YESSSS boxes. I could picture each scene, feel the angst, the mounting insanity. I would suggest going into the story blind and letting it unfold. I read this novel straight through as I could not put it down.

About the Author:

J.T. Ellison began her career as a presidential appointee in the White House, where a nuclear physicist taught her how to obsess over travel itineraries and make a seriously good pot of Earl Grey, spawning both her love of loose leaf and a desire for control of her own destiny. Jaded by the political climate in D.C., she made her way back to her first love, creative writing. More than 20 novels later, she is an award-winning New York Times and USA Today bestselling author with thrillers published in 27 countries and 15 languages. She is also the EMMY-award winning cohost of A WORD ON WORDS, a literary interview television show. She lives in Nashville with her husband and two small gray minions, known as cats in some cultures. She thinks they’re furry aliens. Visit JT at FacebookTwitter, and Instagram for more insight into her wicked imagination.
