this is the story of screw-up Max and what happens when one lie turns into another into another until he is accused of murdering his best friend Preston.

i picked this up because it reminded me a little bit of Dangerous Girls, but, unlike that book, Liars, Inc was not as suspenseful for me.

i actually thought the ending would be a bit different, and i feel like the ending i *thought* it would have was actually better than what the author wrote.

it was a fast, easy read though.

Really suspenseful and well-written. A page-turner. For fans of We are liars.

Liars, Inc is a fun, thrilling, cute little love triangle, missing friend turned to friend being murder story. The main character is a 17 year old boy named Max. He is a typical bad-boy surfer. He has only 2 close friends (or really 2 friends at all) one being his girlfriend, the other a boy named Preston. Both of them are rich kids and Max is just a typical, adopted, surfer who hates most parts of his life. Preston goes missing, Max is blamed, and of course Parvati (his GF) helps find the truth behind it all. FBI agents, murder, and lies are what fill this book.

It is a good mystery/thriller. Nothing special. Nothing mind blowing. Just a fun, easy read. I did greatly appreciate that the author, Paula Stokes, made the fact that the book read like a typical teenage boy. This book is told in first person perspective. I have read a few books written by females that just can't make the male perspective believable. The main character, Max, was very believable as masculine. His perspective on things happening around him were sarcastic and often times made me laugh. I might have had a slight readers crush on him.
The plot was simple enough that I enjoyed getting lost in the twist, turns, lies and mystery. Even though I did figure out the ending before I actually finished, it was still quite an enjoyable read and there were even times I was a bit surprised by the twists and turns the author took. If you like a quick, enjoyable mystery than defiantly check out this book!
