The Lying Game was a mystery, wrapped in drama, wrapped in a mystery. Every time I would think I had some small piece of it figured out, it would all get twisted around all over again. There was always a new curve-ball being thrown, and a new discovery being unveiled. The whole book is narrated by the ghost of Sutton. Problem is, even ghosty Sutton doesn't remember what happened to her. This really helped to give this book a unique voice that I really enjoyed. Emma's character was great. She grew up in the foster care system, so getting thrown into the life of Sutton, and her seemingly loving family, was a new experience for her, and it was a lot of fun to see how she felt.There were moments that would be a little too unbelievable for me and pull me out of the story for a minute, but it didn't take long to pull me back in. While the whole situation is, of course, really out there, Sara did a good job of making it come to life. There were just small moments that I would scream at the character about how she could have proven who she was, etc.Overall, this was a super quick and fun read. I loved that it kept me guessing from the beginning. Actually, I'm still guessing since this is only the start to the series, and we still haven't discovered what really happened. I've never read Pretty Little Liars, but this book makes me want to go get the first one and see how they compare!
