Lies and Lemons by Donna Jo Napoli

The Little Angel of Honesty would never tell a lie. But sometimes she does forget to explain the whole truth to her friends. Before she can earn her wings, this little angel has a lot to learn about what being honest really means. And she has to help a little girl who has the same problem. Celine is tired of being treated like a baby. But she's afraid to tell people how she really feels, so she starts telling little lies instead. One lie leads to another, and another and another. Pretty soon, even Celine can't tell the difference between the truth and the stories she's made up. Can the Little Angel of Honesty help her set the record straight?
