To Lie or Not To Lie?

This was a short and sweet story about two girls meeting at boarding school. A shy girl with a loving family but financially struggling meets a girl acting out to achieve her parent's attention and not just their money. Should Tola tell the truth when Kemi's actions go too far? I really liked the friendship between Tola and Kemi and the codependency they developed with each other. I also liked the underlying messages held within this novel, especially the question, 'should you lie for an easier life?'
