Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m Waiting on Wednesday for Liar’s, Inc. by Paula Stokes (HarperTeen):
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.
Why I’m looking forward to this book:
Um, this one just sounds awesome. It probably has something to do with my love for crime dramas and murder mysteries, but I love how suspenseful the summary makes this sound. The idea of selling lies – and then getting caught in one – is intriguing, and I look forward to seeing how everything plays out. Also, Paula Stokes is the author of the Secrets of the Eternal Rose series (written as Fiona Paul) which, while having issues at times, was really well written, full of awesome imagery and lush settings and an extremely suspenseful atmosphere. I can’t wait to read this one to see how it compares!
Release Date: March 24, 2015
