I shouldn't be writing.
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. But secrets haunt the halls of her elite private school. Secrets people will do anything to protect. Even if it means getting rid of the girl trying to solve a murder...
Review: I don't know how many times I've said this but I LOVE mysteries. And this book was really good too!
Kate is Spunk. She was funny and snarky. And she was going through a lot. Even though her best friend died over a year ago, she's still very broken. Roeckers' portrayal of Kate seemed truthful and realistic to me. But, thankfully, she wasn't all drab. She could a risk taker and a dare devil...and she wasn't afraid to uncover her friend's death.
The mystery was all bells and whistles, if that makes sense! The mystery was so well written and was chock full of secrets and so many twists and turns. The Liar Society kept me guessing on every page. The mystery aspect was probably the one thing that I loved most about this book.
There were some small aspects of the book that I didn't like, but they were little things!
Plus there were a hot boy! YAY! There wasn't that much romance but at least it wasn't insta-love. The romance developed slowly and was believable. I hope it's fleshed out more in the next book because I can't wait to see what happens.
The ending, to me, did not give very much closure. It didn't even feel like a cliff hanger but it just wasn't satisfying!
Overall, a good mystery with snarky characters and some killer secrets!
