When you look at this book, you would probably assume its about a girl who gets caught up in her own web of lies, but redeems herself. Instead I got probably one of the worst protagonist Ive ever encountered. Katie was sssooo annoying, and a whore for that matter. I swear she must have said the words 'kissing', 'macking' or 'making out' at least ten times on every page. She is stupid, too. She just repeats her problem over and over, and she does't think kissing another guy is cheating. And she claims she 'cant help it' when she kisses other guys. This is probably the worst Meg Cabot book Ive ever read. All the characters were shallow, with the exception of Tommy. It also didnt feel like Connecticut to me, (I live in CT), it felt more like the south with just the way every body talked. The only reason I finished this book was see if it would redeem itself, but sadly it didnt.

I always thought Meg Cabot was a little over rated because i've read the first few Princess Diaries books, the first mediator book, All American girl, and a couple of others and i thought they were all mediocre, But I read Pants on Fire and thought it was really good. I thought the book was a little bit predictable but I love the moral at the end.

okay so in the beginnig when i first started reading the book i wanted to close it and throw it away...then im like nah its meg cabot it must be a good book...as i started reading i really liked it. The whole tommy thing was so cute <3 but!...i think that this book was kind of stupid because katie only fell for tommy because he got extremely hott! if he was still the same old scrawny boy she wouldnt wanna kiss him. i think shes a slut..and the fact that tommy went out with her aftr she cheated shows that hes dumb. But i still think that some parts were really cute like the part were tommy comes to meet katie after work and the last few pages of the book <3

I loaned this book from my english teacher. I thought it would be a cute romantic book. instead i got the surprise of what could've been a five minute conversation with one of my friends. One of those stories you just wish you didnt have to hear and want to be over as soon as possible. i couldnt even finish it. It was torture.

Okay im an avid reader...and read all the time.I've read lots of meg cabot books but this ones not the best. I mean its a cute teen story and all but really predictable. I wouldn't say it was terrible cause it was okay. But if your looking for some deep literature. This is not the book to read. the main character does repeat stuff a lot though and that can get annoying,but it's an okay book to read.

I picked up an advance copy of this book at a library conference, and I have to say that it was very disappointing. Normally I love Meg Cabot, especially The Princess Diaries and All American Girl. This book, however, was rather terrible. The entire thing was just a giant literary cliche all rolled into one. Boring characters, predictable plot - I correctly prophesized the ending of the novel after reading the 3rd chapter. Don't buy this if you know what's good for you.

I will be the first to tell you that I love Meg Cabot and that she's my idol. But is it me or are her stories losing their magic and relatability? At first I liked this book, but when I started rereading it again and again, I grew to hate all the characters except for Tommy (I just reread the parts with Tommy in it). The plot is really dull and even though most of Meg's books are predictable, this one was just ... terrible. Katie is basically a slut, she honestly doesn't redeem herself and she's such a whiner. I'll probably write a fanfiction for it to make it fit what I wanted. Save your money and buy something better by Meg like Princess Diaries (Mia whines, but she's MUCH more tolerable now that I think about it).

Meg Cabot is a great writer, but is it just me or is her stories becoming a bit too predictable these days? Pants on Fire has a great plot and I love the characters used, but unfortunately I figured out almost everything that was going to happen before the book even ended. You're either going to enjoy this book or not.

I generally enjoy Meg cabot books, with the exception of Ready or Not, but this book was truly terrible. The character kept whining over and over about the same thing. She couldn't stick with one guy, complained about that, but didn't really seem to find anything wrong with it. While that may not have made sense to you as you read it, if you still read the book by the end of this review you'll understand. The storyline was predictable and the characters were flat. No one had any personality! I was starting to like Tommy, but he was too flat of a character to connect with. Katie was also a very shallowly developed character, but I wouldn't have wanted to connect to her anyway because she was so irritating. This book was disappointing, especially coming from Meg Cabot and is a waste of paper and time should you read it.

This book was terrible! Not only was it repetitive and irritating, but the main character was perfectly intolerable. Katie, the aforementioned main character, had to have said something along the lines of 'Tommmy Sullivan is back in town after not being in town for a while. Oh no!', about five million times. I got it! Tommy Sullivan is back and that is bad for you! Shut up already you annoying creature! I have not seen Meg Cabot write so poorly since 'Ready or Not', where once again the main character repeatedly stated her problem over and over until I wanted to do some Very Bad Things. The end itself was not so terrible and almost redeemed Katie, but there was still unsolved tension within the town and with Katie's brother. Oh yeah, and Katie was a massive whore. If you could not tell, I did not really like this book. Let the flood of people attacking me for having my own opinion commence!

Kate Ellison is torn between two boys—her official boyfriend Seth, who she likes making out with but finds kinda boring otherwise, and Eric, who isn't her boyfriend but who she also likes making out with. She doesn't normally tell lies, but obviously she's gotta keep anyone from finding out about this. Most of Kate's lies are concentrated about one specific event—the infamous night that “Tommy Sullivan is a freak” was spraypainted on the wall of the school gym. Then Tommy Sullivan shows up—years after being run out of town (oh, he goes by Tom now—and he's somehow become incredibly hot!). Now Kate is struggling with feelings for Tom (while desperately hoping that he tells no one about the infamous night), while still struggling to juggle the other two boys, AND competing in the Quahog Princess pageant (while hoping no one finds out that she hates Quahogs the clams AND thinks the town's obsession with Quahogs the football players is stupid). Now all her deceptions are falling apart and OMG Tommy Sullivan (“I go by Tom now”) is getting hotter, what's a girl to do? Kate's solutions are funny and unpredictable, and make for a fun read! The book was overall a great choice in YA chick lit, I have only one quibble which is that I was surprised that the whole “cheating on her boyfriend” part was glossed over and treated like no big deal. There was a justification for it in the book, but it just seemed sort of odd that even Tom Sullivan easily justified it (that she just didn't like either of them enough) and no one seemed that surprised or blamed her. If it were her boyfriend who cheated on her, I'm sure that would have been seen as bad...but since it's our heroine, it's ok? Other than that, I enjoyed the book—and I am a big big fan of Meg Cabot (aka Megan Cabot).
