4.5 Stars 'Dead Girls Don't Lie' is a captivating and thrilling young adult mystery novel that will have you eagerly turning the pages for more. The story is told by Jaycee, a teenage girl who's best friend, Rachel, has just been murdered. Things like that didn't happen in their small town of Lake Ridge. Although Rachel had been acting strange and they had a falling out a few months before her death, Jaycee is taking her friend's murder incredibly hard. She vows to herself and to Rachel that she'll find out what happened that night. Little does she know that looks can be deceiving, and the worst danger out there might be right in your own town. I absolutely love thrillers and this novel did not leave me disappointed. The plot was written in a complex way that intertwined several smaller story lines, laced with questions and no answers. It was a complete enigma for me to unravel, unlike most other novels of the genre. Usually I like to figure out what really happened before the characters do, but I was taken completely by surprise with this one. The entire story had me guessing and just when I thought I had a piece of the puzzle in place - the author only shifted gears and proved me wrong. I loved that I couldn't solve the mystery until the end of the book along with the characters - the thrill of the chase and putting the pieces together was one of the things I loved the most about this novel. The characters were well written as well, especially that of Jaycee - our heroine. We get to see the entirety of her character - her strengths, flaws, intelligence, love for her friends, and her overwhelming guilt. Although she's broken and blames herself for not saving Rachel that night, Jaycee promises to find out who killed Rachel and why. The other characters in the novel were rounded as well, even the sideline characters and the memories of Rachel that Jaycee had were detailed. As I mentioned earlier, the writing was exceptional and the book had a naturally urgent pace that kept me eagerly devouring each page in the attempt to figure out what was really going on. There are tons of twists and turns that the reader won't see coming, which I think definitely adds to the appeal of the book. The entirety of the book - descriptions, settings, characters, occurrences - were so well detailed and vivid that I felt like I was right beside Jaycee as it was all happening. Needless to say, I will definitely be keeping an eye out for more books by this author in the future. Very highly recommended for fans of mysteries and thrillers! Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

Best Bits: Jennifer Shaw Wolf is the master of misdirection. I suspected who the killer was more than once, but I kept second-guessing myself because all of the potential killers are so interesting. No one is grinning menacingly or anything, and each time a character shows a dark side, they soon display kindness. Characters who have moments of goodness can't be murderers...right? So, when the killer was finally revealed I had an "OMG WHAAAAT" moment, and then went back and connected the dots. Jaycee weren't speaking when Rachel died, but little things trigger memories and guilt. I appreciated that it was a complicated situation, and that despite what had happened to their friendship, Jaycee was still determined to get some closure for someone who had a big impact on what kind of person she was. Nit Picks: Much like my experience with another Netgalley read, this one had random letters throughout the book. It meant that I had to guess at what characters were saying, and occasionally what was happening. I can't fault the author's writing for this, but it's really hard to be engaged in a mystery and know exactly what's going on when you can't read all portions of the book. So, it gets calculated into the overall experience. I also would have liked some of the background characters to share a bit more of their histories in the story (assuming that wasn't in some of those sentences that I missed).

Great book! Very suspenseful and excellent story! Wow! The element of who did it had me thinking I knew who did it for the whole read! I love it when I can't figure out who the killer is, that makes the read so much more exciting! This book was excellent and the ending was stellar! I loved the plot and characters and not knowing who to trust! This book was so well written I felt like I was there with Jaycee! Excellently written! Great book! Loved it!

The plot is incredible and the ending was a shock. Had I been younger I would give five stars, but I am not so it was weird reading from a teens viee. Great for young adults.

The plot line made the story a very good mystery. The one objection is that the main character is made out to be an indecisive, vacillating, and self-flagellating person who cannot cease "digging her own grave" due to her penchant for meddling in matters over her head. All in all, DEAD GIRLS...... is a book worth reading. -------Leonard

Jaycee makes it her job to find out about her friend's death and little did she know a wolf in sheep's clothing is among her.

This book is amazing! I never wanted it to end. It is one of those books that just caches your attention since the first page, and with a huge twist in the end. I keep thinking about Rachel and Skyler and thier relationship. One of the best books I have ever read, definitely a must  have.

Okay, I just finished this book and I have to say that Jaycee was very...naive at times. She went against almost every clue that Rachel left for her and I'm dissapointed in that. During her searches, I felt like it was that part of thr movie where some idiot says "let's split up" and the audience knows thats a bad idea. Jaycee made me feel like that. In all the book was entertaining enough, but it left some questions unanswered such as why did Evan and Skyler fight so much. This book would've most likely ended in fewer pages but I would have liked Eduardo and Jaycee to beoe a couple but it seems him too is hung up on Rachel
