Editorial Reviews


"A masterful blend of suspense and danger" --Mandy Hubbard, author of Prada and Prejudice and You Wish

Secret societies dominate a posh co-educational private school in this suspenseful, possibly supernatural mystery. One or both of those societies may be responsible for the death of a girl, or so 15-year-old Kate believes. Kate's best friend, Grace, was killed in a fire under mysterious circumstances a year earlier. When she gets an e-mail from her dead friend, Kate believes Grace is asking for justice and begins to investigate what really happened. The Roeckers populate the school with the standard drop-dead handsome rich guys and a few supermodel-style girls, but Kate finds herself more attracted to dangerous, scruffy Liam. Then there's her annoying next-door neighbor, nerdy Seth, who has an obvious crush on her. Despite the difficulties they cause, the two help her so much that at last she enlists them in her quest. Tension mounts when the trio finds secret areas in the school and starts to track down who was really responsible on the night of the fire. A final confrontation solves the mystery, but can Kate really bring the culprit to justice? And is Grace's ghost really haunting her? The authors create lively and memorable characters and keep the action moving in their lengthy whodunit; Kate's interest in Latin adds an educational element. Clearly, the Roeckers had fun writing their story. Young mystery lovers may enjoy it just as much. (Mystery. 12-16) (Kirkus )

You know, I don't really read a lot of YA mystery. None, actually...which is weird. Because I love mysteries. It's the mystery part of every novel that really sucks me in, that entertains by challenging me to think. I used to devour Nancy Drew books as if they might disappear before I could finish reading them--and my first reading love was Encyclopedia Brown. So what the heck happened? Is it because there aren't a lot of straight up mysteries in YA that I don't read them any more? Did I get sidetracked by Romance and my unquenchable hormones? Um. Perhaps. It may also be the flash of vampires and dragons and falling-apart future worlds that beckons me like tiny gym shorts for Richard Simmons. Who can say for sure? But I do know one thing: if I can find any more YA mystery books like THE LIAR SOCIETY, I'll be reading every single one of them--and I can't wait for the next one by the Roecker sisters'...

THE LIAR SOCIETY is like Nancy Drew, but way cooler, sassier, and a thousand times funnier--with language that is reflective of REAL teenage voices. And Kate Lowry is the girl we all wish we could be--good looking with a biting wit, razor sharp intelligence and mega attitude. Nobody rocks a set of pearls quite like Kate Lowry. The only problem is she's an outcast forced (by necessity and pity) to rely on the biggest nerd in the school (who nearly pooped his pants at one point, which OHMYWORD, had me cracking up so badly, I nearly po...well.) And the setting couldn't get any cooler either: Pemberly Brown, an elite private school set in...Cleveland. Not Beverly Hills, not Boston. But freaking Cleveland. Now how refreshing is that? You should see what Kate thinks about it...

Which reminds me. Let's get back to Kate for a minute. I mean, the mystery was great.

Format: Paperback
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 anymore.
Since Grace died in a mysterious fire one year ago, everything has changed for Kate. She lost her best friend, is pretty isolated at school and has a hard time convincing her parents and her psychiatrist that she's ok.
When Kate starts getting the weird emails she feels energetic for the first time in months and can't wait to investigate the death of her best friend. But she has no idea what she will uncover and how dangerous it's going to be for her.

When I started with "The Liar Society" I expected a mostly light-hearted high school amateur sleuth story because the cover looks like it. You can imagine my suprise when I started to read the book and realized that it was darker and more complicated than I expected. And I absolutly loved that the book was not as I expected it to be because the way Lisa & Laura Roecker wrote it worked perfectly for me.

I enjoyed the authors engaging writing style and that they didn't sugarcoat what happened to Kate after her best friend died. Reading about her pain and her uncertainness about life was heart-wrenching. Kate was both vulnerable and strong, the way she fought for justice was great and I loved seeing the changes in her. How she found her way back to be interested in life again was wonderful. When Kate started to open up to her friends I was very happy for her.

The results of Kate's investigation were a suprise for me. I don't want to give away too much info about it but if you like reading about secret societies und conspiracies then you should enjoy what happens in "The Liar Society". But don't worry, what happens it's not too crazy or unrealistic.

Pink hair! Pink Hair! Pink hair! I love the pink hair!

So this book was not at all what I was expecting.... for some reason I was thinking more along the lines of a fluffy read... I know the best friend is "dead" and that would probably suggest a more serious tone... but for some reason it didn't come across that way to me. But WOWZA this book was so much more than a fluffy mystery. Actually I wouldn't use the word fluffy to describe it at all. (And I don't mean to imply that fluffy reads are bad, because I do LOVE them!)

Who would have thought that I wouldn't be able to stop turning the pages, that it would be a constant guessing game.... I had lots of WHAT!?! moments... and I can't forget to mention the awesomeness of the main character Kate.

I don't pick up many YA mysteries I'm not really sure why.... actually I can't even think of any YA mysteries off the top of my head, well besides Y.S. Lee's Agency series (which I love) I don't really go out of my way to find them, but I can remember a point in my life when mysteries were my favorite genre! I mean I think I've read every Boxcar Children mystery book..... if there are more YA mysteries like The Liar Society you can guarantee I'll be picking them up as well. And if the MC is as cool as Kate... well then, it'll be an even bigger treat.

Kate has an awesome voice. You can't help but be drawn into her story. She's smart and stubborn.... infinitely cool in her own way without really trying to be (although she doesn't know it) I wish I would have been more like her. She seems very realistic and it only adds to the appeal of the story.

The story itself was a big guessing game. Whenever I thought I had something figured out, I didn't. And the ending totally threw me for a loop.
