Wish List Wednesday - Number Thirty-Two

It took me a while to choose a book for my wishlist this week, and I almost gave up, until I had the brilliant idea to start featuring more 2011 debuts. Oh yes, it’s a genius plan. Anyways, to start I referred back to my first ideal read list for the debuts and chose this one;




The Liar Society

Written by: Lisa and Laura Roecker

Released: March 1, 2011 by Sourcebooks Fire

Summary: Then there are two different summaries on Goodreads, so here are both;

Kate Lowry didn't think dead best friends could send e-mails. But when she gets an e-mail from Grace, she’s not so sure.
To: KateLowry@pemberlybrown.edu
Sent: Sun 9/14 11:59 PM
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. 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...

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.


The first sounds much more mysterious and really hooks a reader. The second offers a bit more information about what’s in store. I can’t choose which I like better.

The cover art shown here is from one of the editions on Goodreads but I’m not sure whether or not it’s the final cover. Personally, I’m not really a fan just because it conveys more of a pop-romance-princess-nerd YA thing than a unsolved murder mystery. It’s nice and all, but just not what I would have pictured for a novel like this. I guess time will tell how the actual cover will look.

Let me know what you think!
