About Boys Lie: How Not to Get Played

  • Reading level: Young Adult
  • Paperback: 224 pages

Everyone else is doing it. It’s lies like this one that often get young women, particularly ages 10 to 20, to put aside their own nagging thoughts about what is right—and wrong—and make choices they might regret long-term. Boys Lie is a collection of the most common untruths proliferated by boys and an assessment of the exaggerations and misinformation behind them.

Written by an expert with years of clinical experience with thousands of teens, Boys Lie is the first sexual and social health book of its kind. Based on a large national survey, this timely guide sets the record straight on what guys lie about, arming girls with straightforward advice that is understandable, concise, and totally relatable. And while the title may seem anti-boy, it’s more like pro-girl, helping to foster healthier relationships between the sexes.

Boys Lie unearths:

  • The top lies boys tell including ‘I won’t show anyone these pictures’ and ‘I won’t tell anyone’
  • How technology such as texting and social networking are changing the game, making girls more vulnerable to their male peers and the public at large
  • Case studies, true stories, and quizzes that shed light on pertinent issues in a teen-friendly way.
  • How to cultivate a healthy skepticism in young girls that will empower them to say ‘no’
