Summary: Kate Lowry didn’t think dead best friends could send e-mails. But when she gets an e-mail from Grace, who died mysteriously a year before, she’s not so sure. When the emails continue, Kate is forced to confront her school’s resident druggie, a sketchy administrator, and even her own demons.
As Kate moves closer and closer to the truth, she teams up with a couple of knights-in-(not so)shining armor–the dangerously attractive, bad boy, Liam and her love-struck neighbor, Seth. The three uncover an ancient secret lurking in the halls of their elite private school with the power to destroy them all.

But the truth doesn’t always set you free. Sometimes it’s only the beginning.

My Thoughts: We are introduced to Kate Lowry who has lost her best friend Grace. She's confused, she misses her, she's devastated. Grace died in a fire and Kate just knows theres more to the story than what anyone thinks. She doesn't think it was a accident like it was ruled. She thinks it was set up or a part of a bigger plan. When Kate starts getting emails from Grace, she wonders how its possible, saying dead girls can't use computers.

Kate teams up with her nerdy but cute neighbor Seth and the school bad boy Liam to figure out what is going on. Both boys had a place in my heart from the start.

There is more to the school Pemberly Brown than Kate realizes at first. There are secret societies. There are truths that need to be uncovered. There are hidden doorways. There are mysteries that she needs to solve!

Kate was the perfect narrator, she was just like Nancy Drew putting her heart and soul into solving the case. I also liked the flashbacks to before the fire. We get to learn more about Kate and Grace's friendship. We get to know Grace more as a person and what she was like.

I also liked all the side characters, even if some of them were jerky. They made Kate want to dig deeper and find out the truth and what happened that night.

The Liar Society was a quick mysterious read. It had all the right ingredients of a true mystery novel.

I never saw the ending coming, and I couldn't believe all the secrets we found out throughout the book. All the pieces of the puzzle started to come together and I understood exactly what happened.

Overall: I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed the fast pace and how easy it was to read. The words flowed right along.

Cover: Really like the cover. Pink hair is cool!
