Kate, I'm here… sort of. Find Cameron. He knows. I shouldn't be writing. Don't tell. They'll hurt you.

Now Kate has no choice but to prove once and for all that Grace’s death was more than just a tragic accident. But secrets haunt the halls of her elite private school. Secrets people will do anything to protect. Even if it means getting rid of the girl trying to solve a murder..

Ready for a fun sassy heroine that alternatively touches your heart and cracks you up? Grab THE LIAR SOCIETY! Kate Lowry will win you over in the first pages and carry you along with grace, determination and wit as she solves this thrilling tale.

Kate's endearing personality drives the ultimate fun of this story. I loved her. She's still feeling the pain of her BFF's death but shows a strength bolstered by a laugh-out-loud sense of humor and fighting spirit. She teams up with the nerdy Seth with his not-so-smooth attempts to woo her. Gotta love his resilience in the face of Kate's rejection. Then there's bad boy Liam who adds a nice bit of spicy romance.

But while sparks may fly, heavy duty romance will have to wait. This murder mystery requires some serious sleuthing and sassy Kate is up the for job. She doggedly follows clue after clue on a cleverly weaved path of intrigue and page-turning suspense. The exciting climax manages to give you all the answers but the final ending adds an unexpected twist that still leaves you hanging.

THE LIAR SOCIETY hooks you from the start with a delicious who-dun-it and one of the most delightful heroines in YA. Fresh, fun, witty, a great contemporary mystery young adults of all ages won't want to miss!
