Boys Lie: How Not to Get Played
by Belisa Vranich and Holly Eagleson
Some boys will say anything to get girls to have sex with them. They'll also say stuff to gain control, power, and the upper hand in a relationship. This book reveals the most common lies that many boys tell; lies that can get a girl to make poor decisions in the heat of the moment. Lies like Guys are built to cheat, I'll pull out before I come, You shouldn't feel that way; you're crazy or It wasn't rape - you seemed into it.

And for girls who have already bought into a lie, the authors are reassuring, not judgmental. It's never too late to take responsibility for your sexual and psychological health. This a straightforward, hard-hitting book that will help girls and women separate the good guys from the bad guys and find a fulfilling relationship.
