Review: The Liar Society by Lisa and Laura Roecker

Synopsis:

Since when do the dead send emails?

Kate Lowry's best friend Grace died a year ago. So when she gets an email from her, Kate's more than a little confused.

To: KateLowry@pemberlybrown.edu
From: GraceLee@pemberlybrown.edu
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. She teams up with a couple of knights-in-(not-so)-shining armor-the dangerously hot bad boy, Liam, and her lovestruck neighbor, Seth. But at their elite private school, there are secrets so big people will do anything to protect them-even if it means getting rid of anyone trying to solve a murder...

The Elliott Review:

This book engrossed me from the very start. I LOVE Kate's quirky narrative voice. Although she has been through a lot in the past year with her best friend supposedly dying in a not-so-accident accident, she is still a driving force as she seeks to solve the mystery surrounding the death.

As she seeks the truth, she discovers many things that the elite at her school would prefer remain hidden. It is a task for her to decide who she can trust. I really enjoyed her interactions with her kind of gross but completely loyal friend, Seth. This is definitely not a relationship I could envision going anywhere, and I was comfortable with that. Liam, on the other hand, is completely gorgeous in a rough sort of way, and it's hard to know exactly what his motives are. Is he a tortured soul bad boy who would do anything for Kate or a menacing, lying evil bad boy bent on hurting her?

This read was completely engaging, keeping me in suspense the whole time.
