In Seven Ways We Lie, a chance encounter tangles the lives of seven high school students, each resisting the allure of one of the seven deadly sins, and each telling their story from their seven distinct points of view.The juniors at Paloma High School all have their secrets, whether it's the thespian who hides her trust issues onstage, the closeted pansexual who only cares about his drug-dealing profits, or the neurotic genius who's planted the seed of a school scandal. But it's Juniper Kipling who has the furthest to fall. No one would argue that Juniper—obedient daughter, salutatorian, natural beauty, and loyal friend—is anything but perfect. Everyone knows she's a saint, not a sinner; but when love is involved, who is Juniper to resist temptation? When she begins to crave more and more of the one person she can't have, her charmed life starts to unravel.Then rumors of a student–teacher affair hit the fan. After Juniper accidentally exposes her secret at a party, her fate falls into the hands of the other six sinners, bringing them into one another's orbits. All seven are guilty of something. Together, they could save one another from their temptations—or be ruined by them.Riley Redgate's twisty YA debut effortlessly weaves humor, heartbreak, and redemption into a drama that fans of Jenny Han and Stephanie Perkins will adore.

This book is surprising. From the synopsis, it doesn't sound super interesting, but the way Redgate writes it makes it almost impossible to put down. The seven deadly sins are so well incorporated into the characters personalities you have to really squint to figure out which ones which at first. Some are more obvious, but the characters aren't just walking sins, they're flawed high school students. The main plot of the book is the Student-teacher affair mixed in with each character individual plotline that all work together seamlessly. Also! Pansexual and Asexual Aromantic representation!!
It's a great book, I highly recommend it.

CW: Swearing, underage drinking, and someones outed from the closest forcefully.

The book is a lot better than the summary makes it sound.
