    I don't know how this keeps happening to me, but I have read three books in a row now with endings that are left open or ambiguous, and I think that might be what nailed the coffin closed for me on this one. If you're a big fan of slow burning, atmospheric, YA mysteries, definitely give it a try for yourself. *Many thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy.

    Thank you to Flatiron Books for giving me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. You are able to purchase this anywhere you purchase books NOW! This book was ... alright. I will be honest, I am not one who reads much YA if any. But this was OK. It had very simple writing and was interesting, but not something I think is amazing per se. The beginning and end were both very good but the middle was not. I liked the suspense throughout the book but the middle just felt unnecessary. There Thank you to Flatiron Books for giving me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. You are able to purchase this anywhere you purchase books NOW! This book was ... alright. I will be honest, I am not one who reads much YA if any. But this was OK. It had very simple writing and was interesting, but not something I think is amazing per se. The beginning and end were both very good but the middle was not. I liked the suspense throughout the book but the middle just felt unnecessary. There was literally nothing happening. Now if this was a literary fiction novel MAYBE I'd understand. But it's not. It's a mystery, and none of the mystery happened in the middle. But, I will say I usually expect low from YA's but this one was not bad. The twist was good, kind of messed up but really good. Something that always gets me off guard in YA's is the fact that it's like really twisted and profane, which makes us wonder what the audience is. As a Gen Z human being myself, some parts of this were very cringey. Kahaney really tried to put in some references to Juice Wrld, Lorde, and others that are maybe for "young people." However I will say I was that angsty teen who listened to Pure Heroine in 2013 like everyone else but still...it's cringey. Anyways, regardless of the cringe, this wasn't a TERRIBLE book. But I don't think YA is really for me. This book is for fans of A Good Girl's Guide to Murder and We Were Liars all in all: eh, kinda mid but not bad

    ALL THE BEST LIARS by Amelia Kahaney is a blaze of a novel that starts off as a slow burn before engulfing you all at once. The book explores the shifting dynamics between three childhood friends, Syd, Rain, and Brie, who, as kids, lived right outside Palm Springs in a rundown area and were always looking for a way out. Brie was the first to go. Her dad got successful in business, and when she left, she was all too fine with leaving Syd and Rain behind too. When the book kicks off, Syd, and Rain ALL THE BEST LIARS by Amelia Kahaney is a blaze of a novel that starts off as a slow burn before engulfing you all at once. The book explores the shifting dynamics between three childhood friends, Syd, Rain, and Brie, who, as kids, lived right outside Palm Springs in a rundown area and were always looking for a way out. Brie was the first to go. Her dad got successful in business, and when she left, she was all too fine with leaving Syd and Rain behind too. When the book kicks off, Syd, and Rain especially, hate Brie— that is until Rain’s mom hits the lottery and Rain suddenly finds herself in a completely different world. Brie and Rain start to get close again, bonded by similar circumstances, while Syd is reeling. She doesn’t want to wind up alone, and conveniently, Brie winds up dead. This novel is expertly written. The characters, setting, and plot are all a masterclass in how to effectively tell a story. My favorite part is the structure and how we hop around in time, switching perspectives. It ramps up the tension and suspense, while also allowing us to understand what each girl is thinking about and to relate to her on some level, even if we don’t agree with her actions. While the circumstances of this novel are heightened, the author does a great job at capturing the essence of female friendships at such a tricky time. They can be supportive and nurturing, while also being possessive and fraught. Similarly, Kahaney also portrays the pressure of needing to change your circumstances in a way that feels visceral. It tapped into my muscle memory and made me ache the entire novel. There are, of course, a lot of other novels similar to this, but with the genre-blending and her surprising twists, this book stands out from the rest. One of my favorite storylines is what happens between Chase and Syd. It’s so real. All the dialogue feels exactly how it’d actually happen, and the way his and Syd’s relationship unfolds is so sweet and heartbreaking. I got butterflies during their scenes. That being said, I’m glad that it’s a subplot and doesn’t distract from the main storyline, but instead enhances it. I also love Spider and his role in the story. The small details about everything he does are so authentic that I could easily picture him in action. Syd’s mom is the only character who’s a bit underdeveloped. Aside from her, the world of this novel is so fully realized, you could practically step right into it. Overall, ALL THE BEST LIARS is a heart-wrenching book that reminds us the world isn’t fair, some problems are of our own doing, and other times we just have to play the cards we’ve been dealt. It combines a similar structure of GENUINE FRAUD by e. lockhart with the twisted friendships of PRETTY LITTLE LIARS. Whodunit fans won’t be disappointed.

A deadly fire is set two weeks before the end of their senior year of high school and nothing will ever be the same. What specifically got me was the dying, lying and taking a fall part, SOLD! So I liked this one ok but didn’t love it, and I know I’m not the target audience here but I think even my younger self would’ve had some issues here. First it was a super slow burn, like very slow buildup and as much as I keep trying to have patience with these types of thrillers it just ends up annoying me, like get to the point already. But on the other hand I thought the writing was strong and the characters were well developed, as much as I can’t relate to a group of teenaged girls I felt like actual teenagers definitely would. There was also something mesmerizing about the atmosphere of this one as it’s set in a dry and super hot California desert town and the author had a lot to say about class and money issues. As far as plot goes this was decent for me, I did guess what would happen before but it was clever in its own right, just not very surprising for me. The ending is where it really lost me, I’m not a fan of open ended, leave things wide open things so I didn’t love that aspect. Overall this may work better for you if enjoy slow burns that you can really sink your teeth into.

    Wow… That’s all I could say towards the end when I’d figured out what was happening. All this build up, all the twists, all the switches… Even when I knew, I couldn’t believe it. That’s how you know the story is good. I couldn’t put it down, didn’t want to put it down, I had to keep going. The beginning was a little slow even when you sort of knew already what it would come to, but even having that little bit of knowledge, it wasn’t really anything once you got in to it. Sure you know someone’s Wow… That’s all I could say towards the end when I’d figured out what was happening.

Sure you know someone’s dead, but to see it all come together in the end, you didn’t REALLY know. My only complaint is that I’m a person who craves the “after”. I want to know what happens, want to see it all come full circle, and unfortunately I don’t get that at the end, but it’s so darn good I can’t even be mad about it! This book deserves to be read, it deserves to be known. It deserves to be shared. I was lucky enough to receive this as an ARC book and I’m so grateful to be one of the first people to experience this book, experience the greatness that will follow it. And even at just over 300 pages, it’s not a quick read, but it’s so good it becomes a quick read because you just can’t put it down. I’m excited to see this book take off because I know it will!

    I always worry, with YA novels, that they’ll fall into the same niche as all the others. Same whiny characters trapped in a love triangle. If there is a cliche about teenage representation it’s in almost every YA novel. This, however, is not a typical YA novel. The story follows three teenage girls, who used to be close friends when they all lived in the poor part of town. But as seniors in high school, a fire breaks out at one of the girls’ houses. One girl is killed. One set the fire. And anoth I always worry, with YA novels, that they’ll fall into the same niche as all the others. Same whiny characters trapped in a love triangle.

The story follows three teenage girls, who used to be close friends when they all lived in the poor part of town. But as seniors in high school, a fire breaks out at one of the girls’ houses. One girl is killed. One set the fire. And another feels guilt over what happened. I felt the portrayal of the girls is very well done. They are interesting and flawed. More than that, they aren’t portrayed at dumb and simply missing what’s in front of them. I feel it’s rather accurate. Plus they aren’t whiny. The main conflict has nothing to do with a love triangle. It’s an interesting story from start to finish. I do wish the ending had been a little different. Not with what happened, but how it was explained. It felt like there was a little bit more of a distance there than there should have been. I would’ve liked to feel more than I did. A solid 4 stars. Very enjoyable. Thanks to the publisher and goodreads for my copy of the book.

I’ve never read a book written specifically like this one, and although I was hesitant at first, I loved it. It started out slow, but as the story picked up, so did the pace. I thought the individual storylines of all the characters, Rain, Syd, and Brie was incredible and wonderfully written. I really felt like I was living their lives with them, and was on the edge of my seat for most of this story, wanting to know how it would end. Also, that twist?! Totally unexpected, but maybe that’s because I’m not the best detective. I digress, I never liked Brie from the start and I was annoyed with Rain for most of the story, but I thought Amelia Kahaney wrapped up the story perfectly. I don’t think there’s a convenient way to end a story like that, and yet she did it perfectly. 100% recommend this book to anyone looking for a little mystery. I’m definitely reading more books from this author in the future. Side note: I loved the role that family relationships played in this. Spider was such an interesting character, and I’d be interested to read more about him. I also really loved Joan.

    Thank you for the ARC. I wanted to love this book, but it fell flat. There was nothing "thrilling" about this psychological thriller. It followed the lives of teen girls and their friendship in the most ordinary situations. No suspense, nothing too interesting going on in their lives (except at one point one of their mothers win the lotto, but even the excitement of that fell flat). The characters were hard to connect to. It started to get better towards the last 1/4 of the book , and the ending Thank you for the ARC. I wanted to love this book, but it fell flat.

    I originally read this because a professional review warned that it had heavy drug use. Drugs are used but I wouldn't call it HEAVY. Drugs tie into the plot line but it is not the main theme. Alcohol infused underage ragers are hardly exclusive to alcohol during the opioid epidemic. Teens take pills and use drugs as well. Most of the people that use drugs in this book also do bad things, so the messaging is clear. What this boils down to is this is fine for a public library teen collection.

Depends on your school but there is no actual sexual intercourse in this (talk of it, yes...actual sex, no). Anyways, I really liked how much of a pageturner this one was. I did not guess the ending right away but had a few iterations of what I thought was going to happen. It was a fun YA mystery/realistic fiction read. Rain is my favorite character for sure but I can totally relate to Sydney too.

Overall, I was invested but I doubt that had I been able.to sit and read this through in one sitting, that I would have done so. I never got attached to a character and, as with most books of this genre, I didn't believe anything said or done until the very end. As usual, when fed a hook line such as "lying, dying, taking the fall", I didn't take anything at face value, which served me well for guessing a plot twist. None of the 3 girls were a stand-out character to me. Each flawed and annoying in their own way. But as a whole, they mostly made for a good story. At times, their interactions and just stereotypical teenage girl ways grated my nerves but then again, I felt this way with my peers when I was a teenage girl LOL. Definitely one of the better books that I have won and I wouldn't have been mad to spend a few dollars on it, had I come across it on a clearance table instead of winning it. Worth a read.

    Thank you, Goodreads, for the giveaway ARC! At first I thought this book was a little predictable. But then I realized I think I figured things out exactly when the book wanted you to. I really enjoyed this book! Although it was fiction I could definitely see it happening for real. Money, high school girls, old friendships, terrible fathers, drugs, and love.

If you're one who loves young adult mysteries, you have to check this one out. It reminded me a lot of Mean Girls crossed with His & Hers by Alice Feeney. The story was great! Toward the end I felt that things started to drag and got a little repetitive but that didnt deter me away from wanting to know all the secrets. I found myself rolling my eyes at all the fire references that were thrown into the book. I thought it was super creative and impacted the story the first few times but it got to the point where it felt cheesy and took away from how thrilling the story was.

After the twist, the story unraveled fairly quickly and I was still in shock. “I’d been stabbed in the back long enough. It was time for someone else to hurt for once.” All the Best Liars comes out 4/5.

Absolutely one of my favorite reads of the year.

    I won an advanced copy of this book and enjoyed reading it. It’s a story of high school girls who were childhood friends and their changing relationships due to change in financial situations. Admittedly, I guessed the twist in one of the first few chapters. And I didn’t care for the pitbull slander in the first chapter. That being said, definitely worth a read! The author does a great job of capturing some of those high school feelings.

    3.7 ⭐️’s I won this in a giveaway so this is my honest review: Who doesn’t love reading about high school girl drama?? I thought this was a good YA suspense/thriller. I’d say it’s more suspenseful than thrilling. It follows 3 seniors in high school: Sydney, Rain, and Brie and slowly you find out what happened to one of them after the falling out they all had. I think all 3 were very unlikeable for me, but it didn’t ruin the story. I’m thinking that’s how the author wanted them portrayed.

The beginning started out slow for me, but it picked up pretty quickly towards the middle. The ending wasn’t very satisfactory, but I think it’s left for you to interpret it the way you want. At least I interpreted it the way I wanted 😂 anyway, this was a quick read and kept me wanting to read more so I’d recommend!
