Little White Lies Blog Tour – The Soundtrack by Katie Dale

Ever wondered what the soundtrack to your favourite book would be if it were a movie? I thought it would be fun to have a go, so here are the songs that I think would be perfect for the soundtrack to my new YA thriller, Little White Lies… Enjoy! 

Starting university is all about reinventing yourself, but Louise Shepherd has gone a step further, even changing her name in her bid to hide her true identity from everyone she meets. Until she bumps into an old school-friend, Kenny. He promises to keep Lou’s secret – but can she trust him?
Lou’s cousin Poppy’s favourite song, this reminds her of home, and of the best friend she let down so terribly.
When Lou meets tall, dark, and handsome Christian, she knows he’s hiding something. Why does he clam up every time she asks about his past? Why doesn’t he have any family photos and why does he dye his blond hair black?
Suddenly Christian’s terrible secret is unveiled to the world – and it seems everything he’s ever told Lou is a lie. 
Should she stand by Christian, against the whole world?
Or can what the media are saying about Christian really be true? If so, Lou could be in terrible danger… 
As Lou’s heart battles her head there is just one question: Who is the real Christian?
But Christian isn’t the only one keeping secrets. For what if their chance meeting was no accident at all…?
As lie follows lie, nothing is as it seems, and soon Lou finds herself ensnared in a web of deceit, her loyalties torn; her emotions in tatters.
As Lou finally discovers the truth, she faces a heart-wrenching dilemma: should she shatter the lives of those she holds dearest, or betray the guy who, against all odds, she’s fallen in love with?
An actress as well as an author, Katie loves nothing more than creating characters – both on page and onstage. She kept her parents happy by getting a “proper degree” in English Literature at Sheffield University, before finally going to drama school, then whilst she was on a belated gap year travelling through South-East Asia she found out she’d been chosen as a winner of the SCBWI Undiscovered Voices competition with the her first novel, the emotional rollercoaster SOMEONE ELSE’S LIFE, which launched her writing career, and is now published all over the world. LITTLE WHITE LIES, her second novel, has just as many twists and turns, but is more of a thriller…
