It all starts with one little lie…
Max Cantrell has never been a big fan of the truth, so when the opportunity arises to sell lies to his classmates, it sounds like a good way to make a little money and liven up a boring senior year. With the help of his friends Preston and Parvati, Max starts a business providing forged permission slips and cover stories for the students of Vista Palisades High. Liars, Inc. they call it. Suddenly everybody needs something and the cash starts pouring in. Who knew lying could be so lucrative?
When Preston wants his own cover story to go visit a girl he met online, Max doesn’t think twice about hooking him up. Until Preston never comes home. Then the evidence starts to pile up—terrifying clues that lead the cops to Preston’s body. Terrifying clues that point to Max as the murderer.
Can Max find the real killer before he goes to prison for a crime he didn’t commit?

Why will readers enjoy your book?
You’ve decided you want to become a super secret agent/spy. What would your alias be? (And just because I’m sure we’re all curious–what do you think your first assignment would be?)
If your main character could pick one superpower to have, what would it be and why?
Compare your book to any dessert.
Can you guess which of these facts about Lori is actually a lie?
2. I used to daydream about being a CIA operative, just like Parvati does.
3. One of Max’s Korean baby sisters is named after my real life cousin…and I haven’t told her yet.
When she’s not working (rare), she’s kayaking, hiking, reading, or seeking out new adventures in faraway lands. She’s petted tigers, snuggled snakes, snorkeled with stingrays, and once enjoyed the suction-cuppy feel of a baby elephant’s trunk as it ate peanuts from her palm. Her future goals include diving with Great White sharks, learning Krav Maga, and writing a whole slew of novels, not necessarily in that order.
You guys can win an ARC of Liars, Inc.! Fabulous right? And yes, this giveaway is open internationally!
Have you read/added Liars, Inc. to your TBR? Did you guess Paula’s fib correctly? Thoughts on the interview? Feeling lucky for the giveaway?
Aimee loves being a little bookworm (okay–she doesn’t like being little). She also loves chocolates and sweets but is freaked out by the thought of possibly getting diabetes.
