If you're a fan of Jodi Picoult, you'll love Diane Chamberlain's The First Lie, an original eBook short story companion to Necessary Lies.
It's 1958 in rural North Carolina, where thirteen-year-old Ivy Hart lives with her grandmother and sister on a tobacco farm. As tenant farmers, Ivy and her family don't have much freedom, though she and her best friend, Henry, often sneak away in search of adventure. But everything changes when Ivy's teenage sister gives birth, refusing to reveal the identity of the baby's father. Soon Ivy finds herself unravelling a dark web of family secrets and trying to make sense of her ever-evolving life in the segregated South.

Did I buy a short story or just an extract.. Confused and not impressed by iTunes description
A bit of a con
Good story, I really wanted to read on but then the story came to an abrupt end and I realised I have only bought an extract, or something? Really disappointing, I feel ripped off. I will think hard before I pay for any of the books in the store again.
The first lie
Very disappointing not the story enjoyed the bit I read. Misinformed thought I was buying a book not an excerpt. No good iTunes.
