Gatlin must be Southern for "great big honkin' ball of falsehood." All the major characters flat out lie at least once (usually more) throughout Beautiful Creatures, and all the townsfolk have at least one skeleton in their closet. (We haven't discovered a literal skeleton yet, but we wouldn't be surprised.) Sure, they all have their reasons, but it's usually not healthy to keep secrets—secrets weigh you down. Telling the truth is like giving a Slim-Fast to your soul. Maybe we should spike the Gatlin water with some.
