"Hera, why in God’s name did your English teacher think I was the queen of a small Indonesian province?”
When sixteen-year-old Hera Lee tells her English teacher she's the princess of a small Indonesian Province she has no idea that her stint as a Champion-Liar is up. Hera's mother signs her up for therapy with an unconventional woman who dresses like Willy Wonka. Willy Wonkeress, as Hera's fondly nicknamed her, proposes something Hera doesn't think she can do: No lies for a year.
Hera agrees, if only to get her mother off her back. But her therapist's unnerving knack of being able to tell when she's told a lie might be more than she can handle. Especially now that her childhood friend Nick is back on the scene. And he still thinks he's Peter Pan. What is UP with all the crazy book characters in Hera's life?
