Hello peoples! So today I come to you with my review of Liars and Losers Like Us* by Ami Allen-Vath as part of the book’s blog tour! I will try to be as non spoilery as possible but I make no total promises. Before I get into the review though, let me share with you some book details:
Liars and Losers Like Us* by Ami Allen-Vath
Publisher: Sky Pony Press
Release Date: March 22nd 2016
Keep calm and make it to prom night—without a legit panic attack.
For seventeen-year-old Bree Hughes, it’s easier said than done when gossip, grief, and the opportunity to fail at love are practically high-fiving her in the hallways of Belmont High.
When Bree’s crush, Sean Mills, gives her his phone number, she can’t even leave a voicemail without sounding like a freak. Then she’s asked to be on Prom Court because Maisey Morgan, the school outcast nominated as a joke, declined. She apologizes to Maisey, but it’s too late. After years of torment and an ugly secret shared with their class’s cruel Pageant Queen, Maisey commits suicide. Bree is left with a lot of regret…and a revealing letter with a final request.
With Sean by her side, Bree navigates through her guilt, her parents’ divorce, and all the Prom Court drama. But when a cheating-love-triangle secret hits the fan after a night of sex, drinks, and video games, she’s left with new information about Sean and the class Pageant Queen. Bree must now speak up or stay silent. If she lets fear be her guide, she’ll lose her first love, and head to prom to avenge the death of the school outcast—as a party of one.

Doesn’t it sound awesome?! Now for the review:
As you guys saw above in the synopsis, the timing of the story is around senior prom. Now for me, I’ll let you in on a secret, I love prom. I mean I don’t go to dances – not my thing – but I loved the atmosphere of people asking each other to prom and looking at my friends’ dresses. It’s an awesome feeling and as I also, oddly, like stories that have a high school setting I was ready to read this book. Well, I definitely read this book as it took me less than a day to finish it: as my family was in the pool, I sat in the hot tub reading this book and dying of amazingness! Seriously, the characters are so human and realistic and wonderful and the relationships/chemistry between characters was so on point! The setting was amazing (as you can imagine) and just everything was wonderful! The best thing though was the fact that the characters had real, human reactions to things like divorce, suicide, prom, school etc. It felt like the book was just the written form of a documentary of my high school. It was amazing! Okay well not all the circumstances were amazing but you get what I mean. Essentially what I’m trying to say is PLEASE READ THIS BOOK. PLEASE. You will very much love me for telling you to.
Okay I think that’s enough fangirling/pushing for now and so I direct you to an awesome giveaway!
