Secrets & Lies Blog Tour: The Lies That Bind by Lisa & Laura Roecker :0)

Just when Kate Lowry thought she had life at elite private school Pemberly Brown figured out, she cracks open a fortune cookie to find a message from her best friend Grace--who's supposed to be dead.

Another Sister Gone.

A classmate has gone missing, and Kate soon realizes that the disappearance is tied to the secret societies that rule her private school. Her best friend died for their secrets, and there's no way she'll let them get away with it twice. It's up to quirky outsider Kate to get some answers, but in a school where every answer leads to more questions and nothing's as it seems, who can she trust?
Once upon a time I thought secret societies were the coolest thing since sliced bagels. I used to think it would be awesome if my high school had one and to figure out how to be a part of it. I mean, what sounds better than a group of peers with awesome connections and popularity? Now I'm not so sure about those secret societies. There are people dying, people turning up missing, and crazy antics that never end the way they are supposed to. After spending a couple of books with Kate, I'm starting to think she's on the right track in trying to take them down.
Kate is such an awesome main character. She's got a personality and sense of humor that I can get on board with. She doesn't give up on things that matter to her, no matter how dangerous they may turn out to be. She doesn't always win, but she always keeps going. And I really like that she gets messages from her dead best friend. What an awesome plot device. This isn't a paranormal series and ghosts aren't running rampant throughout, but what better motivation to get to the bottom of something than to have your dead best friend, whom you miss terribly, help you along the way?
Lisa and Laura Roecker have cooked up some fun, funny mysteries that pull you in and keep you reading. We get an awesome cast of characters to keep us company along the way and some seriously twisted high school students to constantly keep Kate on her toes. You can bet I am on board for more adventures with Kate and crew!
