        Kimberly Reid Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Perfect Liars book, this is one of the most wanted Kimberly Reid author readers around the world.


    1. Perfect Liars is nothing brilliant, but it is extremely fun, light and smart. This is the type of read that will get you out of your slump.What sets this book apart from its peers is the diversity. It's not your regular YA story filled with privileged white kids. It is a tale of delinquent teenagers from different culture, and social belonging who finds solidarity with each other.Splendid. Fucking spot on. We need more of this.My only moan is the delicate opening of the book, and the charac [...]

    2. See more of my reviews on The YA Kitten!Diversity Rating: 3 – Closer to RealityRacial-Ethnic: 4 (Andrea and her brother are biracial; Xavier is Korean; I believe Gigi is Latina)QUILTBAG: 0Disability: 0Intersectionality: 2 (plenty of acknowledgement of how different Andrea’s life is from Xavier’s because of her family’s ill-begotten wealth)Tu Books is probably one of my favorite publishers and yet this is the first time I’ve read one of their books. Seems silly, I know, but their dedica [...]

    3. Sat down with this book late Monday night and didn't put it down til early Tuesday morning when I got to the last page. Really appreciate that the protagonist is mixed race (and her love interest is also a person of color), but race isn't a central theme. I also appreciate the way Reid walks the reader through Drea's change in perception around kids caught in the juvenile justice system and how the kids she originally fears as "criminals" are, actually, well, kids and real people, not monsters.

    4. One of the things I appreciated about Perfect Liars was the way details were doled out and how I learned more and more about past events as time went on. While I feel like the pacing was pretty uneven in the first half, things picked up quickly in the second half. I was fully engaged with the mystery, which took me by surprise more than once, and I’m hoping the open(-ish) ending is an opportunity for future books in the series. (I would love to learn more about Drea’s parents, for starters, [...]

    5. Perfect Liars is a lot of fun in my favorite city and I like a little hint of boarding school hijinks in the South, but while the beginning of the tale sets you up for a suspense the plot doesn't move fast enough, those who love a mystery will still like it, especially if you're into her previous titles or those by beloved author Stephanie Perry Moore. The bright spots are really the relationship between Andrea and her brother. I loved their easy sibling friendship and genuine care for each othe [...]

    6. I liked the characters a lot, even the minor ones, but overall I thought the story had just a few too many inconsistencies for a mystery and could really have used some editing to keep the pacing tighter. There were also a lot of plot elements that I found extraneous here. Would I read a sequel, though? Sure. I'm interested in seeing where this crew goes next.

    7. First, I really enjoyed this book. No, it wasn’t perfect but it was still very good. Ignore the synopsis because it is very misleading. One of the things that annoyed me was the beating to death of the fact that Drea is not who she was pretending to be; that she was secretly a criminal. Other than her dwelling on it over and over and over there isn’t any real evidence of her criminality. I liked the dynamics of the characters. I found Jason to be funny, and I think he’s my favorite. Drea w [...]

    8. Disclaimer: DNF @ page 109Sorry Kimberly Reid, but I think I'm going to have to shelve this one with the DNF'sThe premise is intriguing, the characters are just mysterious enough, the atmosphere is appropriately high-classbut I think it's the narration that's throwing me off. I don't usually badmouth books for their narration style at all - surely not every novel can be narrated in the first-person and flow well - but I really feel like first-person narration would have helped this story. Drea i [...]

    9. This is the first YA novel I’ve read in a while, since I’ve been so busy reading for class and for my undergrad journal, so I was really excited to get my hands on something that was purely for fun. I think fun is the best word to describe this book, if not also clever and real.Perfect Liars is a novel that brings the troubles of everyday teenage life – including crushes, fear of becoming your parents, and living up to expectation – to the precipice of adult issues with morality, the cri [...]

    10. This is a great book for the high school student who loves anything about mystery and crime. It takes some time to really get into the plot but it was quite refreshing to have a multicultural cast!

    11. Not the best book I've read. Based on the inside flap, I thought this was going to be a crime-mystery about Drea searching for her parents who suddenly went missing. However that is not what I got. The protagonist was a terrible static character. She tries so hard to fill us in on the fact that her parents are reformed criminals, and she never wanted to be like them. She's so different from them, but after the first chapter, we jump 10 months down the road. It's in passing that Drea's parents ha [...]

    12. Review by: Anita O (11th Grade)Andrea Faraday is Peachland’s poster child. She gets perfect grades. She is very outgoing. She is on the debate team. Her parents are big and important donors to the town and the prestigious Woodruff School. And she was chosen to be valedictorian and likely to do everything perfect in life. However, when her parents disappear, she finds that her perfect façade starts to fade away day by day, which causes her to become similar to some people that she would never [...]

    13. When I heard that Kimberly Reid was writing another book, I was so happy. I loved her Landon Prep series and I am forever grateful that her series got me out of a long reading slump. But I have to say, I was dissapointed with this book. Now let's start off with the things I didn't like.1.) The pacing of the plot- This story took forever to get interesting. It seemed that the first 200 pages were just about Drea being blackmailed into helping them and then more pages about her finding out nothing [...]

    14. I felt like I wanted resolution to start a bit earlier, but I liked the characters and the messages. I also like how the dynamic of the group developed.

    15. So while I enjoyed some of the writing some of it I didn't enjoy as much. The book was very vague which I didn't care for. I didn't like the characters too much either. This book somewhat reminded me of The Bling Ring, but not as good. Most of the characters were these rich snobby kids who acted like they were so good. A bunch of fakes basically. Then the book does a time jump which just made things more complicated than they had to be for the story. I don't like it when things are drug on like [...]

    16. To most people, Andrea Faraday is perfect – rich, smart, popular. So what is she doing breaking into her private school late at night? And why is she so enamored of this boy who is clearly trouble? When her parents disappear we learn that Andrea has a lot of secrets. She’s actually the daughter of a pair of con artists who have made a fortune trading in real and fake antiques. What starts out as an action packed suspense/romance becomes a pretty pointless story about petty criminals and wann [...]

    17. I honestly would have rated this higher if the narration had been less choppy and vague. I felt as if there was a book/ prologue that I missed sometimes. She would refer to things and vaguely describe things sometimes way too late that made it confusing at times. Another thing I didn't like at all was the language. There were several curse words that were entirely unnecessary. I also found the fact the main characters besides Xavier to be all extremely grating. They were all too over the top and [...]

    18. I really enjoyed Perfect Liars. Kimberly Reid drew me into this story of rich people, heists and criminals. It's so very good and if you like Heist Society by Ally Carter, you'll definitely enjoy this one. ⟶ It has #squadgoals. And that same camaraderie you might find in Six of Crows, but also the unlikely friendships that can be form. ⟶ Interracial ship!!!!! ⟶ Great characters that will make you laugh and have a good time. ⟶ Sibling relationship *heart eyes*I need to write my review pro [...]

    19. Pretty good book. No foul language, crude teenagers, or sex. Deals with con artists - both young and older. Drea's brother was formerly in juvie, has reformed and is now a rookie policeman. X and Jason have been caught breaking into her school. How did the police know they were there 4 minutes after entering? Drea and Damon's parents have disappeared - what con game are they up to now? Drea takes a volunteer job tutoring juveniles in science.

    20. 3.5ish.I really liked this book! I just wished the plot didn't go soslow . I was hoping for it to be more action packed, but it was still a redeemable book as the characters were written so uniquely and so diverse. FOUNDED FAMILY TROPE IS REAL AND ALIVE IN THIS BOOK. I may have cried just a little.

    21. Initially when I started to read this book, I didn't like it, but once I got into the book, I was engulfed. Warnings:Drugs-NopeSex-NoneViolence-YesLanguage-Yes
