As of yesterday, July 16, Penguin Teen released the first trailer for Sacred Lies, so today I’ll be sharing with you my thoughts on it!
Sacred Lies is an upcoming mini-series based on Stephanie Oakes 2015 debut novel (from Dial Books), The Sacred Lies Of Minnow Bly!
Summary: The Sacred Lies Of Minnow Bly is a dark, character-driven story that follows 17-year old Minnow Bly who is now juvenile detention. She spent the last 12 years of her life in the Kevinian Cult and as she recounts her story to an FBI officer who can offer her a chance at freedom, she has to face the difficult truths of her past.
Stephanie Oakes’s novel is what got me back into YA Mystery + introduced me to YA Thrillers and is easily one of my favorite YA thriller/mystery standalone books of all time!
The way she crafted mystery, suspense, and her characters always had me picturing The Sacred Lies Of Minnow Bly perfect to adapt as some sort of TV show or mini-series!
I’d seen news about her novel being picked up as a mini series with Facebook Watch & a few cast announcements, but now actually seeing the full trailer release, I am so excited to check out the adaptation & as fan of the book, can’t believe the story is actually coming to life on the small screen!
Sacred Lies will be streamed through Facebook Watch as a 10-episode Mini-Series!
Here’s the trailer for Sacred Lies:
My Thoughts: This is a fantastic trailer! I really loved it!
From the trailer, having read the book, I found it delivered the plot in such a great way! You also get the dark, eerie mystery through the cinematography, which looks incredible!
With the dual sides to Minnow Bly’s story, the trailer delivers a perfect balance of both her life presently and before, while also not giving too much away!
I found the trailer really got the soul of the story through and has me really eager to check out the show!
Sacred Lies will premiere on Facebook Watch July 27!
Are you a fan of Sacred Lies and looking forward to the adaptation??
