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...

You know what I miss? I miss those fun little high school mystery books that I used to read when I was a teen. The ones where you're just as clueless as the MC, so you're having to figure out and guess right along with the main character. You know what I'm talking about, right? Well, fortunately for us, Lisa and Laura Roecker have brought that back with their debut novel, The Liar Society. Set in a boarding school, this book has all of the potential to be a run-of-the-mill boarding school book where the main girl is popular with all the hot guys, but the mean girls don't like her and all she wants is a true friend... yadda yadda yadda. Yet again, the authors surprise us by taking the boarding school premise and making it so much more than that. We have a main character who's distraught by her best friend's death and, when receiving e-mails from said dead best friend, she does everything in her power to try and find out what the friend is trying to telling her. What ensues is a story full of adventure and mystery, with a hint of romance and wit added right along with it. Kate is a wonderfully written MC and I love that they make her such a powerful female in this book - she's got the looks, the attitude and the wit. Plus, there's this sense of undying loyalty for her best friend in the book that just makes me all warm and fuzzy on the inside. I think Kate and her two sidekicks, Liam and Seth, are an amazing trio that work well together. Seth is that guy next door that you can always depend on and Liam is that bad boy that makes your little heart go pitter-patter. Their dynamic together is nothing short of amazingly perfect. I also liked that some of the characters weren't as shallow as they seemed as first and were developed extremely well through the story where it wasn't necessarily told that they weren't as horrible as you thought, you actually saw through their actions how they truly were. Of course, there were some jerks.. but it might surprise you who those jerks really are. Or not. This is definitely more of a character-driven book, but the plot was not lacking in any way. I loved the use of the flashbacks to show Kate's relationship with her best friend Grace before she died. I also loved the boarding school with all of its rich history and detail. Kate's quest to find out about her friend is endearing and the ending is unexpectedly bittersweet. However, there is closure and a definite hint at another book to follow - one that I will definitely be picking up as soon as it becomes available.

When I first sat down to read this book yesterday, I only expected to read a few pages and then put it down until it was closer to its March release date, but before I knew it I was halfway done, and once you're that far, you can't put it down, right? Especially if it's as amazing as The Liar Society was? So, before I knew it, I was done with the book and dying to read the next, because if The Liar Society isn't one of the most thrilling and unique books out there, I don't know what is. The Liar Society tells the story of Kate Lowry, a girl who hasn't felt the same since her best friend Grace died last year. Kate feels there was more to Grace's sudden demise than told, but after a year of seeing a shrink, Kate's learned to be quiet about her theories. Well, until an e-mail from Grace appears in her inbox, telling her to contact Cameron, Grace's some-what boyfriend, so she does, and before she knows it, she's hooked on the case and finding out the truth, even if means finding out disturbing secrets about her crush Liam and recruiting her nerdy neighbor Seth to be her side-kick. But is Kate prepared for the truth? Especially if it means uncovering more than she ever expected? Only time will tell in this thrilling mystery! One of the things I loved most about this book were the characters, especially Kate. Kate is like a new Nancy Drew in the way that once she finds a mystery, she has a hard time stopping herself from seeking the truth, which is one of the main reasons why I loved Kate's character so much. Because with this trait, it was easy to see Kate was a fearless, smart, and witty character, one you not only didn't want to mess with but couldn't help but to root for. Along with Kate, came several other great characters, such as the charming and secretive Liam, a boy who's after Kate's heart if she'll let him close, and Seth, Kate's sidekick who managed to steal the show with his dweeby yet adorable antics time and time again. Another high point of The Liar Society was the plot at hand. The plot of this contained so many mysteries, twists, and turns, that even the most truth-seeking of readers won't be able to figure out just what happened until the very last pages- a very, very good thing, in my opinion. Better yet, I loved how Lisa and Laura Roecker put the perfect touch of romance in this, one that leaves you eager for more of it in future sequels. And this review wouldn't be complete if I didn't say at least once how amazing of authors Lisa and Laura Roecker are! They created such a great and believable world in this, one I hope readers, like myself, will be able to visit time and time again in the future. Wit, romance, suspense, and action- this book has it all! I seriously can't express in words just how much I LOVED this book. Lisa and Laura? You've kind of created a fan-girl in me with this- one who can't wait to read more books involving Kate, Liam, and Seth and anyone else you two dream up. Grade: A+

Hi guys! FYI, this book is AMAZING!!!!!!! (So far at least.....i havent actually finished reading it yet). This is a definite must-read for all of you young adults out there. If you are someone who loves a little fiction, romance, mystery, and others of the like, then this is your book. Sooooooo, the story begins when Kate recieves this mysterious letter from her recently dead best friend Kate. Soon after, she realizes that maybe Grace's death wasn't an accident after all. In the letter, Grace tells Kate to "find Cameron.....he knows". It also mentioned one more thing. The letter warned Kate not to tell anyone about whatever she found out.......or else they would find her. And kill her.........
