Read the full review at my blog-

I thought this would be a simple mystery/thriller and was beyond surprised. I guess I should have known. If you’re familiar with the author’s other works you might have an idea. And in hindsight, the clues were there all along. I just can’t make up my mind though! Was it brilliance on Larbalestier’s part or just a cop-out? I’m of two minds. I don’t know if I want to recommend it or not. You may think it’s genius or you may be disappointed. I felt a mixture of both. I don’t know what to say without giving everything away I’m afraid.

Liar was certainly well-written and definitely a page-turner. If you’re a YA fan you’ll probably like it. But if you like traditional detective stories or crime thrillers or anything, consider yourself warned! This does not fit the bill. I’m still not sure what to rate it. It definitely made me think and the twist was definitely twisty, I’ll say.
