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...

I heard so much positive buzz surrounding The Liar Society that I was a little afraid it wouldn't live up to all they hype. Quickly after starting the book, I knew I was a total fool for waiting so long to pick it up. This book is flat out amazingly entertaining and was so much more than I ever hoped for!

Seriously, what more could anyone want in a book than an elite Private School, an unsolved murder, a nerdy best friend and a hot guy fending for your attention!? I loved that for a second I'd be a hundred percent sure that a character was the murderer, than in the next chapter my feelings did a complete one-eighty! The clues added up so perfectly and I adored getting transported into the secrets of Pemberly Brown.

Kate is definitely one of my all time favorite main characters. She's witty, sarcastic and quirky. I admire that she always what's on her mind and is willing to do anything to prove that her best friend's death wasn't an accident.

The supporting characters where just perfection! All of their personalities were so unique from one another, but came together to make this amazingly crazy student body. I loved when reading that I could clearly relate the characters to people I went to high school with. I constantly found myself going, "Wow, we had a Beefany too!"

Liam and Seth were totally amazing! They were polar opposites of each other, Seth being the nerdy best friend and Liam, a mysterious bad boy with a past. Seth was so easy to like and feel compassion for. I adored that he stuck by Kate's side even though she was constantly turning him down. Liam was just plain hot! He was chivalrous and just had an all around great personality. Definitely a swoon worthy guy!

I never saw the ending coming! I don't want to say too much in fear of giving anything away, but it definitely left me wishing I had book two sitting next to me!

Amazing Quote:
"But I wasn't the same girl I had been a year ago. I had been through hell and back, and if there's one thing I learned on that journey it's that I wasn't going down without a fight. Another one."

Characters: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Voice: 5/5
Plot: 5/5
Impact: 4/5
Overall: 5/5

The Liar Society is a stand out book in the young adult genre, I honestly haven't read anything like it. It had me staying up late at night to find out what happened to Kate and her crew. It was the perfect modern teen murder mystery that had me on the edge of my seat until the very end. You must pick up this book as soon as possible, I promise that you won't regret it!
