Don't tell.

Warning: By reading this book you will have the sudden urge to drink lots of Starbucks, 
start wearing long strands of pearls, and dye your hair pink.

I had been pining for this book for what felt like forever. And then everyone started
reading it and gushing over it, authors were making crazy videos to show how much
they loved it, pink haired avatars were everywhere on Twitter. There was some serious
Liar Society love going around.
I was seriously green with envy of anyone who got to read it before I did. When my copy
finally arrived in the mail , when it was finally in my hands, I got really nervous. All I could
think about was what if it wasn't as amazing as I thought it was going to be?
All of my worries and doubts went away within the first few pages.

Kate was a badass, but still so realistic. The downs in her life made her extremely easy to 
relate to. She was damaged from losing her best friends, one to death and the other just 
didn't want to be her friend anymore. Kate wasn't perfect or fearless by a long shot, but she
trusted her instincts and kept pursuing the clues she kept getting about Grace actually being
murdered.Even when her parents sent her to see a shrink because they thought she was just 
obsessed with what happened to Grace, she kept going. The girl had gumption.

I really did not like the parents though. I know they were working and busy, but anytime their
daughter just needed to talk or needed them to believe her they thought it was a better idea
to send her to a therapist. They never once just talked to her. Their daughter went through 
something really tragic and they were more worried about her hair being pink then what
she was going through. That bugged me a bit.

The love story was sweet, but not the main focus, which made for a much more 
enjoyable read. The story telling and dialogue was incredibly witty and snarky which 
kept me hooked through the whole thing. I could go on and on about how much I enjoyed 
this book, but I think it would be better if you got yourself a copy and saw for yourself. 
I have some serious love for this book and cannot wait to see what awesomeness
Lisa and Laura have up their sleeves for their next book.


  1. I've heard some good things about this book. I think I'm going to check it out! Thanks for the review!


  2. So right! I DID have the desire to dye my hair pink (or at least a lock of it) but as my students would make endless fun of me, I decided against it.

    LOVED this book. LOVE-LOVE-LOVED! This is a definite re-read for me. Thanks for the great review.


I love comments, so you should leave me one...or two :D
