Book Love - The Liar Society

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.

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...

Even if I didn't love all things pink, even if I didn't think Lisa and Laura Roecker were some of the most awesome people around, even if I didn't have an adorable student who happened to be named Grace Lee, even if I didn't have a thing for pearls, even if none of these things were true, I would still be all about this book.

I love mysteries. And even more than mysteries, I love spunky girls who solve mysteries. Veronica Mars is one of my favorite TV shows, and I was reminded of my girl VM several times as I read this book. There were tons of twists and turns as Kate explored this mystery, and I loved following along beside her as she navigated through them all. 

With all the mystery, this book is really all about the friendship between Kate and Grace, and I really loved that. Kate will do anything to help solve her best friend's murder and get to the bottom of the mysterious e-mails. She wants to make sure that the truth about Grace, no matter what that truth is, comes out. I love YA books about solid friendship, and I kept getting sad that Grace was only around in flashbacks and mysterious e-mails, because I really wanted more Kate and Grace interactions.

And I'm not going to spoil, but I really liked the ending. It surprised me...in a good way. And that's all I'm going to say about that.

This book is so much fun. Exciting and mysterious, touching and fun...oh, and PINK HAIR. This book has a little bit of everything. It kept me so entertained from beginning to end, and I can't wait to read the next one.
