New Book Showcase
 All the Best Liars
 by Amelia Kahaney

 One will do it by dying, 
 another by lying, a third by
 taking the fall... 

 Best friends Syd, Rain and Brie grew up on the wrong side of the tracks in the stifling California desert, desperately wishing for a way out. When a deadly fire is set two weeks before the end of high school, nothing will ever be the same. In the end, each of them will escape - but not in the way any of them expects.
