Perfect Liars

By Publishers Weekly

Sixteen-year-old Drea Faraday may be at the top of her class at the exclusive Woodruff School in suburban Atlanta, but that doesn’t stop her secrets from coming out in this socially conscious crime thriller. While Reid (the Langdon Prep series) hooks readers early on with details about Drea’s parents’ shady history in the antiques market, as well as the orchestrated theft of dozens of luxury cars, the story soon pivots into an exploration of the criminal justice system. Reid grounds her story in reality, with a diverse cast (Drea is biracial, Xavier is Korean-American), moral gray areas (involving juvenile offenders, attorneys, cops, and more), and ample consideration of the real-life consequences of the characters’ actions.
