REVIEW for Liars and Losers Like Us
Thank you to the publishing company Sky Pony Press for sending me an electronic copy of this book.
TITLE: Liars and Losers Like Us
AUTHOR: Ami Allen-Vath
RATING: 5 Stars
What a wonderful book! At first, I was worried that this would be the standard contemporary YA fare, but as I started reading, it soon became obvious that there is a depth to this book.
All of the characters are flawed, all the while struggling to just "be", especially in the world of proms and high school. Although there are a lot of ups and downs with each character and mainly with Bree (Breeze), you still feel the love the author has for both the characters and her story.
Sprinkled with a love story, tragedy (which defines most of the book, even at the beginning when we, as readers, don't even know it yet).
Extremely well written with compassion a dose of humour and a strong parental figure (soooo nice to see this) - I absolutely adored this book.
