I just finished reading this and I wanted to write the review while it’s still fresh in my brain.
So the summary goes like this: Max Cantrell has never been a big fan of the truth, so when the opportunity arises to sell forged permission slips and cover stories to his classmates, it sounds like a good way to make a little money and liven up a boring senior year. With the help of his friends Preston and Parvati, Max starts Liars, Inc. Suddenly everybody needs something and the cash starts pouring in. Who knew lying could be so lucrative?
When Preston wants his own cover story to go visit a girl he met online, Max doesn’t think twice about hooking him up. Until Preston never comes home. Then the evidence starts to pile up—terrifying clues that lead the cops to Preston’s body. Terrifying clues that point to Max as the murderer.
Can Max find the real killer before he goes to prison for a crime he didn’t commit? In a story that Kirkus Reviews called “Captivating to the very end,” Paula Stokes starts with one single white lie and weaves a twisted tale that will have readers guessing until the explosive final chapters.
When the author says its twisted it’s really truly twisted. I loved almost every aspect of the story and it got better as I kept reading. Max grows and develops in the story and the author wrote a very well written story of not only about the mystery but also about family, love and trust.
What I loved most was how the story was connected with each other in a way that was almost as good as a movie well acted.
I would recommend this book to people who love a really good and well written story.
My rating: 5 stars
