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.

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.

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.

I discovered the TV series before the books and although at first it took me a while to get my head around the changes I very soon became totally enthralled and read the first 4 books of this series faster than I've ever read anything before! Unfortunately I can't seem to get the rest of the series on kindle and I don't particularly want to buy them in paperback, but it's getting harder and harder to resist buying the paperbacks anyway because I really want to finish the series!!!

I chose to start reading this series of books after watching the first series of The Lying Game on TV. However, be warned the book Is nothing like the TV show although it does have the same characters in it.
I am actually glad that the books are not like the TV series as it makes them a more tense an interesting read :) I can't wait to read the next one now!
