Suzanne Young = "Working So Hard" + Guestanista review of THE LIAR SOCIETY

I can't stop laughing at this! My favorite? The jogging scene. You'll see why...

And seriously, you only have a couple more days to get yourself pinked up and ready for this ultra-amazing contest we've got brewing...

Also, I'm turning over my blog to a real, live young adult! Meet Fabiana Fonseca, daughter of Christine Fonseca for a GUESTANISTA review! Fabi's here to give us her take on THE LIAR SOCIETY by Lisa and Laura Roecker.

Take it away, Fabi!

Something Awesome about the book:
I really loved the mystery in THE LIAR SOCIETY. It kept me engaged in the book and reading – always a good thing. In fact, I really liked the whole premise of the book. The pacing kept me turning the pages, and the characters were well developed. I really like Kate and how she sort of found herself in the book. She figured out who she was and found her own strength as the storyline developed. I liked that a lot.

Questions I still want answered:
This was definitely one of those books that leaves questions. I mean, dude - who threw the rock??? I never saw the answer to that. I am assuming it is a series – at least, it had better be!!! There just has to be more.

Overall Recommendation:

I LOVED THE LIAR SOCIETY! I can’t wait to read more about Kate! (And BTW, I’ve totally been talking up this book to my friends). Great job Lisa and Laura. I am already planning on reading anything else you guys decide to write.

Fabiana is a bookworm, a math geek, and closet fashionista. She spends her time divided between music, mock trial, sports, designing, and reading. Yep, she has a busy busy life!

You girls crack me up with your videos. Seriously though, I love how supportive you all are of each other. That's the great thing about the writing community. There is such a great support system. I'm looking forward to The Liar Society!

Fabulous take!!! Hearing it from the view of a Young Adult is definitely good news for Lila, because if they liked it, other fab peeps will fall into their addictive novel!!!

Love the videos... these are uber awesome!

I'm looking forward to the contest. You guys are doing good marketing because I'm thinking of really dying my hair pink and wearing pearls... and buying the book.

Okay, this is just hilarious. You guys are the best. Seriously. And this review? Fabiana, thank you for taking the time! We're so happy you liked it and want to read more! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

LOL! I love the bathroom scene! Awesome.

Jessi said...

I've looked forward to these videos every morning this week. Job well done! And great review Fabi!

Tere Kirkland said...

LOL! Call me back!

So sorry to hear about LK Madigan. I was never lucky enough to get to know her, but it's good to know she's been immortalized by her novels.

Shannon O'Donnell said...

LOL X 10!!! And I love the bonus guestanista review! :-)

J.R. Johansson said...

Great review. Love to hear it from the target audience. :)

Oh my word, Suzanne is hilarious. Loved the progression to the pink. It's so great the support all of you are showing. Super friendship for a super book.

Welcome Fabi! What a great review! I can't wait to find out what happens next, too.

Love the video and the review. Great job.

Roxy said...

Awesome video. The jogging phone call is my favorite part, too. Very funny! I'm looking forward to reading The Liar Society. Thanks for reminding me to put it at the top of my reading list.

Nikki (Wicked Awesome Books) said...

That video is made of win! The jogging scene is hilarious, but I kinda like the 'you may need to call Intervention' scene.

I'm loving all of these videos and cannot wait to experience The Liar Society for myself :D

Jen said...

This video is hilarious! Love it :D
Great interview, I'm not intrigued to learn more and Kate...and the pink hair!

Cheers! said...

Love this post and video and so sad for all of the Madigan family. I read about her illness a few weeks ago in a post written by her and she was so brave about it. So sad...

Julie Musil said...

The video was hilarious, and nothing's better than getting a great review from the target audience. Well done!

Hardygirl said...

What fun!! And, what a great review by a real young adult.

I need some pink hair ...


Jemi Fraser said...

Love it! Great jogging scene & I love the hair :)

I finally managed to convince Twitter to allow me to update my avatar - I'm pink!!!

Jessica Love said...

These videos seriously keep getting better and better! Suzanne is hilarious!
