Halliday, Ayun. PEANUT New York : Schwartz & Wade, 2012 IL 5-8, RL 3.8 ISBN 0375965904 On her first day at a new school, sophomore Sadie Wildhack wants to come up with something that will make her more interesting. Now faking an allergy may not be the first thing anyone would think of but that is what comes to mind for Sadie. She tells the other kids that she has a very serious peanut allergy. OK, it is not like she lied about dying from cancer or anything. It is just a harmless lie about a common allergy. But you know what they say, lies have a way of catching up with you. And that just may happen to Sadie.
