Today is dedicated to Lisa and Laura Roecker whose first YA novel, The Liar Society, will be published tomorrow!
Why I love Lisa and Laura
Mostly because they write one of the best author blogs out there. It's the only one I read every day. They offer the perfect blend of professional and personal, and are always funny, lovable and real. Not to mention fantastic writers. And they do a particularly fantastic and selfless job of celebrating YA books and writers. My only problem is that they only post once a day, I would seriously go back for more if they updated continuously. But I guess that's what twitter is for.
Why you should buy their book
Here was my official take:
"Who doesn't think their high school is conspiring against them? Toss in an unsolved murder, unstoppable heroine, ancient puzzles and a hot guy and you've got one killer novel."
My unofficial take:
I simply loved it! Kate is a fantastic, clever and cool character that's easy to relate to, Liam is the ultimate love interest, funny, smart and sexy. The mystery is unique and impossible to figure out and I loved the private school setting Lisa and Laura created. It felt like a fresh take on prep school and the details were unusual and sometimes a bit creepy. Don't miss this one. A contemporary YA novel that has the wild, mysterious ride of a paranormal.
And if you don't trust me, because admittedly I'm biased, I adore these authors. Here's what Kirkus said: "The authors create lively and memorable characters and keep the action moving in their lengthy whodunit; Kate’s interest in Latin adds an educational element. Clearly, the Roeckers had fun writing their story. Young mystery lovers may enjoy it just as much."
