My perfect life was a lie.

Now I'd do anything to uncover the truth. Not long ago, I had everything a girl could wish for: amazing friends, an adorable boyfriend, a loving family. But none of them know that I'm gone—that I'm dead—and that my long-lost twin sister, Emma, has taken my place to solve my murder.

But the deeper she digs, the more suspects she uncovers. It turns out my friends and I played a lot of games—games that ruined people's lives. Anyone could want revenge . . . anyone could want me—and now Emma—dead.

If you have read the first book then you know Emma has her hands full playing the part of Sutton, her dead twin. The Killer is out their amongst them and a cloud of doubt is very big in regards to if your friends hand anything to do with it. All she know is that she must continue to play Sutton, and Ethan is her only friend who knows that she is not Sutton. In Never Have I Ever, she starts piecing together more of Sutton's life and what she was doing around the time of her death. As she checks off her list of suspects, mainly her friends. She thinks she knows who the killer/s might be and sets out to try and figure out a way to call them out. Danger lurks in every corner though as Emma, has a few mishaps and always feels like someone is watching her. Ethan and Emma grows closer, but doesn't really want to get involved with a guy while all of this is looming over her. Gabby and Lili really want to be a part of The Lying Game Club and will go at great lengths to prove they can be just as evil as the rest of the clique. Emma is really suspicious of the twitter twins motives when it comes to a lot of things and doesn't trust them. As Sutton's ghost starts regaining bits and pieces of her memories we get to put more of the puzzle together on what happened at the train tracks, etc. --- The Lying Game continues in Never Have I Ever, and I really enjoyed the book. I have never really been one for these types of books, but I am really curious to know who killed Sutton. I am not really a fan of long drawn out series so I really hope The Lying Game is not like Pretty Little Liars, because I don't know if I will last that long. I mean I like what I am reading, but I am ready to find the killer. Sara Shepard does a great job of putting together a great group of characters and letting you have little bits of insight into them as Emma tries to figure it all out. The only thing that I don't really like is how one moment it can be Emma who is doing the talking or thinking, and then the next moment it could be Sutton's ghost doing the thinking. Sometimes that got a little confusing, and though I got use to it I just really didn't like that style of writing. Even though I have not read the Pretty Little Liar's series I am beginning to think that Sara Shepard is the queen of cliffhanger endings. I am sure she does the same thing with the other series..lol. As you all well know I really hate cliffhanger endings and I almost wanted to through my kindle across the room! Over all I did enjoy the book and can't wait to find out what happens in the third book, Two Truths and a Lie, it comes on Feb. 7th, 2012. Not a real long wait but long enough! If you like Pretty Little Liars I think you would enjoy The Lying Game series and suggest you go pick it up now! :)

These books are 1,000% better than the t.v. series. In fact i read the first book and then started watching the t.v. series and the t.v. version just made me mad so i prefer not to watch it anymore. These books are terrific! Nothing is what it seems to be! I would stay up in the early morning/late night just to read these books. I love love LOVE these books. They are the best books ever.. just saying..

[]In this follow up from The Lying Game, Emma Paxton will have to continue in this immense journey to uncover who killed her recently discovered twin sister, Sutton- a spunky girl whose actions in her lifetime are already an obstacle in Emma's path. As Emma was placed into Sutton's life, she learns more about the Lying Game, and interesting way of playing by pranking others that are involved in it. But Emma will find that Sutton has done some cruel things to a few of her closest friends-who could have gotten revenge. Emma is reluctant to trust anyone, and we are, too. [] [] A must read for mystery lovers and those who love Pretty Little Liars [] [] Hope you found this helpful! Wanna talk more? Invite me for a game in Words With Friends! My username is TheBombJD.[]

I read the first book and was bored from the first few chapters. By the middle of the book I couldnt set it down. I hope the second book is the same way!

All of the lying games and pretty little liars books are amazing! The tv shows are totally different but good in a different way. Couldnt sleep until i finished them all. Awaiting the 3rd book in the lying games and 11th in pretty little liars. (:

I am not the target demographic for YA books, yet I found the book very enjoyable. I read the first book in the series on a whim, and was immediately drawn into the story of the twins. The underlying mystery that infuses ordinary teenage life is very reminiscent of Pretty Little Liars, but this series is definitely not an imitation of PLL. Each book contains a story arc that gets resolved by the end, but Shepard leaves enough unanswered questions to keep you anxiously waiting for the next book. I particularly liked the development of Emma's various relationships with the main characters in this book. I will definitely read book #3.

I loved this book, andi think it would be fine for yur class, but u would have to read the first one!! And plus, it is a little innaproriate, like lot of alcohol and sutton(emma) boyfriend tries to have u know what with her! So probly not good for a sixth grade class

After the first one got me hooked it was a no brainer to biy this one. The minute i bought it i couldnt put it down. I finished this one before the third one had come out and spent every day waiting for the next chapter in the characters lives.

I honestly love the t.v. series and haven't read the books but the overview sounds nothing like the series. Who knew Sutton was dead? lol well in the book i guess. so can't wait to read the series.!

Good book, really gripping. BUT REALLY? 10 bucks for 200 pages? ABSOLUTLY HORIBLE. WORST PRICE EVER... I am not willing to by the second book untill the price goes down. But the book it self is great. Even though the story line hasnt gone anywhere. Nice storyline...
