Intriguing Summary

From the author of Moxie comes a stunning novel told in three voices about the lies families tell to survive. Every year, summer begins when the Callahans arrive on Mariposa Island. That’s when Elena Finney gets to escape her unstable, controlling mother by babysitting for their two children. And the summer of 1986 promises to be extra special when she meets J.C., the new boy in town, whose kisses make Elena feel like she’s been transported to a new world. Joaquin Finney can’t imagine why anyone would want to come to Mariposa Island. He just graduated from high school and dreams about going to California to find his father and escape his mother’s manipulation. The Liars of Mariposa Island follows siblings Elena and Joaquin, with flashbacks to their mother’s experience as a teenage refugee fleeing the Cuban revolution.Jennifer Mathieu’s multilayered novel explores the nature of secrets, lies, and fierce, destructive love.


About the Author

I’m a high school English teacher and writer. My novels for young people include MOXIE, THE TRUTH ABOUT ALICE, DOWN CAME THE RAIN, and more.My fourth novel MOXIE is a film on Netflix, directed by Amy Poehler. :-)All my YA novels are published by Roaring Brook Press/Macmillan.In July 2024, I’ll be introducing my first novel for adults, THE FACULTY LOUNGE. It’s being published by Dutton and follows a sweeping cast of characters who all work at a big public high school in Texas. I live in Texas with my husband, son, dog, and cat. When it comes to what I read, I love anything that hooks me on the first page. I adore thoughtful memoirs and creative nonfiction about arts and culture. When it comes to fiction, my favorite contemporary writers are Curtis Sittenfeld, Danielle Evans, and J. Courtney Sullivan. If I could travel into the world of a book (but only for a little bit!), I’d choose an Edith Wharton novel.
