Synopsis

Shortlisted for the Peters Book of the Year.



A shocking story of rebellion and revelation set in a contemporary Nazi England.



Jessika Keller is a good girl: she obeys her father, does her best to impress Herr Fisher at the Bund Deutscher Madel meetings and is set to be a world champion ice skater. Her neighbour Clementine is not so submissive. Outspoken and radical, Clem is delectably dangerous and rebellious. And the regime has noticed. Jess cannot keep both her perfect life and her dearest friend. But which can she live without?



THE BIG LIE is a thought-provoking and beautifully told story that explores ideas of loyalty, sexuality and protest.

Staff Choice

This book is incredible. An alt-history novel about what the world would be like today if the Nazis won World War II, this book is extremely thought-provoking, and unbelievably scary. WWII wasn’t that long ago. It ended only 70 years ago, no matter how far in the past it might seem to some of us. The Big Lie shows us the possible present we could be living in had the Nazis won, and the world we’re shown is terrifying – not just because of how awful it is, but because this could be our lives. It’s not a dystopian novel set in very distant future, it’s set now. Present day with a different past. The Big Lie covers big themes such as feminist issues, morality, deep female friendship, sexuality, and questions about loyalty – to country, to your beliefs, to your friends. An important, harrowing novel.
