Five Unreliable Narrators


Invisible by Pete Hautman – You can tell from the start something’s a little off about Doug, but the secret he’s hiding is so big even he might not be able to cope with it.


A Fast and Brutal Wing by Kathleen Jeffrie Johnson – The line between reality and imagination is so blurred in this tale of one bloody Halloween night that you’re never quite sure who to believe, and how far.


Evernight by Claudia Gray – There’s one very important detail about Bianca’s life that she doesn’t mention until about halfway through — and if you guess what it is beforehand, you’re a sharper reader than I.


The Demon’s Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan – Nick doesn’t mean to be unreliable — in fact, he doesn’t lie at all — it’s just there’s so much he doesn’t know in his world of magicians and demons, he can’t help it.


Liar by Justine Larbalestier – Micah, on the other hand, freely admits she’s a liar. But just this once, she promises to come clean and tell the whole truth. Really, you can trust her this time. Or can you?

Who are your favorite unreliable narrators (YA or otherwise)?
