Kate Lowry didn’t think dead best friends could send e-mails. But when she gets an e-mail from Grace, she’s not so sure.

To: Sent: Sun 9/14 11:59 PM From: Subject: (no subject)

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…

Grace is dead. So when Kate Lowry’s email inbox pops up with a new message from her dead best friend, she knows something’s up. That one email trigger’s Kate’s search for the truth. Because ever since that tragic day, Kate has had that feeling – Grace’s death was not an accident.

I absolutely loved The Liar Society. It was light and dark. It had edge-of-your-seat suspense and humor where I least expected it. I loved Kate – her witty sense of humor, smarts, and courage to venture into the dark when she knows someone’s hard on her heels. She is an awesome main character (as you can probably see from the cover!).

And Seth! Seth, Kate’s loyal sidekick and neighbor, was exactly what the story needed for lighting things up. With his never-ending hunger, science fiction craze, and nerdy ways, Seth was perfect.

I saw everyone as a suspect. I wasn’t sure how this was going to end, I wasn’t sure if Grace was alive or not.

And I didn’t expect that ending. At all.

So what are you waiting for? The Liar Society debuts today, in bookstores near you. You’ll want to pick this book up ASAP and dive into the world of secret societies, age old secrets, and a Nancy Drew kinda girl.

    I enjoyed that Kate gets support by her friend Seth and her new friend (maybe boyfriend) Liam. The three of them were a great team and worked well together. I was very happy that the relationship between Kate and Liam was not the main focus of the book, the investigation and Kate's new found interest in life were more important.

    I enjoyed this read. It was light and fluffy and those are definitely necessary every now and then. Can't wait to start book 2.
