Format: Hardcover
Sutton Mercer has it all. She's the popular "It" girl at Hollier High. She's got the hot boyfriend. She's co-captain of the tennis team. And, oh yeah, she's dead. Somehow, her spirit has managed to find Emma, her long-lost identical twin sister. Emma doesn't know Sutton is there, but somehow they are connected.

Emma Paxton doesn't know anything about Sutton, either. At least not until creepy Travis, the son of her foster mom, shows her a snuff video on the Internet starring someone who looks identical to Emma. Emma has to find out the truth about Sutton. Did someone die in that video? Does Emma have an identical twin that Becky never told her about?

With one seemingly innocent Facebook message, Emma's life turns into one dangerous mystery after another. Sutton never shows up to their meeting place, and Emma, being mistaken for Sutton, is dragged to a party by Sutton's friends. Emma tries telling Sutton's family and even the cops that she is not Sutton, all to no avail. When Emma receives a mysterious note saying "Sutton's dead. Tell no one. Keep playing along...or you're next," she realizes that this is no longer a game, and her life depends on her finding out who killed Sutton.

Sutton Mercer is dead. Trust me, this is no secret. The reader learns this on page four of the novel. Now you're thinking, "I've read this before." Nope, don't go into THE LYING GAME thinking it's just a rip-off of the PRETTY LITTLE LIARS theme. Yes, there is a murder. Yes, there is a mystery. Yes, you will keep wondering who is behind everything. But from there, THE LYING GAME goes in a far more sinister direction. Be warned: you won't want to put it down once you start it. Everyone is a possible suspect, and nothing is resolved.

Format: Paperback
I really expected great things from this, the author has been very popular and successful and I was
fancying reading a good mystery, but it failed to deliver somewhat.

I'll start with the good : the tension was fairly well built, the secrets were well kept in that I
didn't figure anything out too early spoiling the big reveal. he characters are well written and the
plot / storyline was very good.

The bad : The author really doesn't tell you much of anything. Reading this was a little bit like
watching an episode of Lost, thats how it left me feeling, a little lost. I get that this is a series and
so the auhor can't reveal it all, but something would have been good. I will read the next book because
I do want to know what happens next (assuming the author sees fit to tell us) and it wasn't an awful
book, I just felt very short changed at the end when we didn't really find any answers and the cliff hanger
wasn't even that suspensful.
Another bad : The way it is written. It seems to switch from being from Emma's perspective, with Emma's thoughts
to being from dead Sutton's perspective and her thoughts in just a single sentence. This made it quite hard
to follow and I became confused and would have to re-read bits to figure out who's perspective this was from.
I like dual perspective, its very interesting to get two peoples views, but the way it was done was very
strange and hard to go along with. Perhaps different paragraphs for each person or italicizing it would
have made it easier to follow. I don't know, just found it hard to read.

Overall I did enjoy this, I would recommend it to people who like mysteries and nasty teenagers. I will
check out the rest of the series, but I won't have such high expectations this time.

Having seen the TV series, which is supposedly based off these books, I was rather disappointed by how much was different. Having thoroughly enjoyed the TV series and wanting to find out what actually happens, as I do not feel things were really wrapped up when it finished, I was saddended to find a completely different story.

Whilst the book is good in it's own right, I do find it misleading to say the TV show is based off the books, when the whole story is completely different and the only thing similar is the names of the characters. Don't get me wrong, I understand that books that are turned into shows/films take some artistic licence and bits are added/removed, but to change the story so much, I was not expecting. Having said this, I did enjoy the book and will continue to read the others in the series, to find out what happens.

By Fluffy Socks on 30 Sept. 2014
Format: Paperback
I have just finished reading this book and I have to say I have some mixed feelings about it. The plot line is good and the idea is good but I feel it was written in a desperate hurry with the author writing blindly as though she didn't exactly know where she was going. When it did seem to get onto sort of a track it was thrown off again. It became almost like another book called Dead girls walking, however, it is very vague and almost blurry in places.

I would like to read the next book in the series but I'm in no hurry for it, it's definitely not something to be excited about but it makes for an okay, relatively quick read you could do in a couple of hours being just over 300 pages long.

The ending was more like opening a brand new book and starting from chapter one, all the minor suspense and thoughts you build throughout the series expecting there to be something and it pretty much wipes your slate clean back to exactly how you are the moment Emma starts looking for her sister Sutton's killer. I really felt this was badly wrapped up and it just trailed on and on and fell off the edge into a big pool of what next?

Not bad for younger teens but it's definitely not good for mid-teens, young adult or over.
