Event Details

“You should know, right now, that I’m a liar. They’re usually little lies. Tiny lies. Baby lies. Not so much lies as lie adjacent. But they’re still lies.”

We are honored to be partnering with YA novelist, Crystal Maldonado, author of Fat Chance, Charlie Vega to celebrate the February release of her new novel No Filter and Other Lies. Tune into the Bookmans East social media this February 27th at noon and enjoy an in-depth interview about the new release.

No Filter and Other Lies

Twenty one-year-old Max Monroe has it all: beauty, friends, and a glittering life filled with adventure. With tons of followers on Instagram, her picture-perfect existence seems eminently enviable. Except it’s all fake. Max is actually 17-year-old Kat Sanchez, a quiet and sarcastic teenager living in drab Bakersfield, California. And things are about to get messy. NO FILTER AND OTHER LIES (Holiday House Books) is coming Feb. 1, 2022.
