Here Lies Daniel Tate by Cristin Terrill
June 6th 2017
Find it on Goodreads
When ten-year-old Daniel Tate went missing from one of California's most elite communities, he left no trace. He simply vanished.

Six years later, when he resurfaces on a snowy street in Vancouver, he's no longer the same boy. His sandy hair is darker, the freckles are gone, and he's initially too traumatized to speak, but he's alive. His overjoyed family brings him home to a world of luxury and comfort he can barely remember. In time, they assure him, he'll recover his memories; all that matters now is they're together again.

It's perfect. A miracle. Except for one thing.

He isn't Daniel Tate.

He's a petty con artist who accidentally stumbled into the scam of a lifetime, and he soon learns he's not the only one in the Tate household with something to hide. The family has as many secrets as they have millions in the bank, and one of them might be ready to kill to keep the worst one buried.

I really loved Cristin Terrill's first book All Our Yesterdays, so I'm very much looking forward to this! I have a feeling this is going to be a very suspenseful YA thriller, and I am all for it. For some reason, I am always drawn to books about con artists (I don't know what this says about me), so mix that up with some thriller-y, secretive mystery, and I'm bound to like it. Especially since I predict there are going to be a load of crazy plot twists in this book. I'm really not a fan of the cover (the blocky eye thingy...why?!) but I'm reading this book anyway because it sounds fantastic.

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. Oh it sounds very intriguing and amazing. Hope you enjoy reading it!

  2. This reminds me of a book I read last year, Pretending to be Erica - basically same plot. heh, I don't know what it is about con artist stories either, but they are pretty intriguing. Especially if the author can manage to make said con artist a sympathetic character. I haven't read All Our Yesterdays, but I recall people really enjoying it when it came out!

  3. lol, I was just about to mention Michelle Painchaud's Pretending to Be Erica and then I saw Aylee's comment. Eileen Cook's The Almost Truth also has a premise about taking over the identity of a missing person too. I think the similarity is partly why I haven't been really excited for Here Lies Daniel Tate. But then again, in a few months that might change because I do love reading about teen con artists. :)

  4. The cover is kind of off-putting, but the story sounds pretty amazing! Great choice, Liz!

  5. Eeeeepppp, I am very curious about this book! I loved Terrill's debut novel, and honestly it's about time she had another book releasing! (That sounds terribly bossy and judgy, not intended!). I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a fantastic week, Liz. =)
