In a modern coming-of-age memoir, Emma Foster leaves her small hometown in Montana to follow her dream to make it as a model. Emma imagines a glamorous lifestyle, ready to forget her troubling past, and find true happiness. Instead of succeeding, she becomes financially unstable. Now Emma finds herself navigating shady friendships and relationships throughout her life, which includes a two year-long physically and emotionally abusive relationship. Life becomes thrown into further turmoil when Emma's Momma, who she sees as a second mother and one of the most important people in her life, meets a sudden tragic end. After Momma's murder, Emma finds herself with many unhealthy coping mechanisms. When Emma becomes pregnant with her son, she learns to slow down and find herself, her values, and overcome toxic habits. The Lies I Told Myself is a story of a girl going out to find her happiness but eventually discovering that happiness could only be found inside her.
