My Review


Alyson Gerber’s middle-grade thriller, “The Liar’s Society,” takes readers on a captivating journey filled with mystery, suspense, and the complexities of family secrets. Set against the backdrop of the prestigious Boston School, the novel introduces us to Weatherby, a scholarship student eager to connect with her elusive father, and Jack, a member of a wealthy family desperate to prove his worth.

The author masterfully crafted the characters in this novel, making them mysterious and immensely intriguing. Weatherby, as a fish out of water, brings a relatable vulnerability to the story, while Jack’s mediocrity and hidden struggles add depth to his character. The narrative keeps readers on the edge of their seats as the author skillfully weaves it, never quite certain of what will happen next.

The central plot revolves around a high-stakes game initiated after the theft of money earmarked for a school trip to a private island exclusive to Boston students. As Jack and Weatherby dive into the mystery, they find themselves entangled in a web of secrets, leading them to a dangerous game that could change their lives forever. The tension builds with each page, making “The Liar’s Society” a definite page-turner.

Comparisons to popular titles like “The Inheritance Games” and “One of Us is Lying” are apt, as Gerber’s novel delivers a thrilling experience for middle-grade readers. The combination of a secret society, a mysterious island, and the ominous presence of family secrets creates an atmosphere of intrigue that will keep readers hooked from beginning to end.

One strength of the book lies in its exploration of whether some secrets and lies are impossible to overcome. As Weatherby and Jack navigate through the challenges, the narrative prompts readers to reflect on the consequences of deception and the power of honesty in relationships.

The Liar’s Society” is a well-crafted and unforgettable mystery that successfully blends suspense, secrets, and the complexities of family dynamics. Alyson Gerber proves her prowess in creating a compelling narrative for the middle-grade audience, making this book a must-read for those who enjoy stories filled with intrigue and unexpected twists.
