In my book A Thousand Lies, Bailey is a 15-year-old living an ordinary--and even a bit boring--life in nowheresville Indiana. She's never questioned anything about her life until she sees photos of herself in an art exhibit. Those photos lead to questions that have no honest answers, and Bailey realizes that everything she thought true about herself was a lie. This leads her on a peril-filled trip to NYC in search of her true identity.
When I was in NYC two weeks ago, I tried to imagine being there as a sheltered 15-year-old girl from a small town. I can imagine being alone, frightened, and constantly lost. Thankfully her story has a satisfying ending, but not before she ends up in a lot of trouble far from home.
If you haven't read A Thousand Lies you can get it from amazon in print, kindle, and audio formats.
Here are some pictures from my trip.
I took my book into Madam Tussaud's wax museum and posed with it. I got some funny looks from people.
When I stood, I picked up my book, and a lady thought I was stealing it from the display. If I'd had another copy, I would have left it so it was in everyone's pictures!
