Waiting on Wednesday is a popular weekly meme that was started by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It’s where you spotlight a book that you’re really excited for and are eagerly anticipating. So what am I dying for this week? It’s about a gritty, intense contemporary novel about
Liars, Inc by Paula Stokes
Publication Date: February 2015
It all starts with one little lie…
Max Cantrell has never been a big fan of the truth, so when the opportunity arises to sell lies 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 a business providing forged permission slips and cover stories for the students of Vista Palisades High. Liars, Inc. they call it. 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? Paula Stokes starts with one single white lie and weaves a twisted tale that will have readers guessing until the explosive final chapters.
I’ve never been the biggest fan of contemporary romance. Of course, that doesn’t mean I don’t like the genre. I’ve been exploring it a little bit more recently, and I’ve found a lot of books I’ve really liked. In November 2013, I heard about the YA Valentines and it’s extraordinary cast of authors. Among these was Paula Stokes, author of The Art of Lainey and, under the pseudonym Fiona Paul, wrote the Secrets of the Eternal Rose series. But LIARS, INC is said to be more intense and dark.
I love intense contemporary. The gut-wrenching stories of devastating losses, incredible triumphs, defeat and power are what really break through to me in contemporary so I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS BOOK. Besides, it’s Paula Stokes. She won’t disappoint. :D
