Everything you need to understand or teach The Lying Game by Ware, Ruth .
The Lying Game, by Ruth Ware, is the story of four teenage girls who bond over the rules they make up for a game by the same name. Though Thea, Isa, Kate, and Fatima consider their lies to be pranks, the behavior isolates them from other students and causes major problems. Thus, the four girls are asked to leave their boarding school. The years pass, and a cloud of suspicion continues to follow them. As adults, they realize that the lies from their youth had a profound effect on the lives of many, including their own. The main themes are the effects of lying, the power of words, and a parent's love for a child.
