    After finishing the series, I was really looking forward to reading this, but this novella just disappointed me. As much as I love Sutton in the actual series, she's incredibly immature in this one, especially with the way she handled her relationship with Thayer and Garrett. And also that CONTINUITY ERROR with Thayer and Garrett??? (view spoiler)[In Never Have I Ever, Emma sees a picture of Sutton going to prom with Garrett. In this picture, you could also see everyone else with their dates, inc After finishing the series, I was really looking forward to reading this, but this novella just disappointed me.

And also that CONTINUITY ERROR with Thayer and Garrett??? (view spoiler)[In Never Have I Ever, Emma sees a picture of Sutton going to prom with Garrett. In this picture, you could also see everyone else with their dates, including Thayer, who stood slightly off to the side, looking pissed at Sutton and Garrett. Now, this doesn't make sense since according to True Lies, Thayer and Sutton were together before she was with Garrett. And when Thayer left Tuscon, he didn't officially come back until Sutton was actually dead and Emma was in Sutton's place. So, how could there be a picture in Never Have I Ever of Sutton and Garrett going to prom together while Thayer was still in the picture (pun definitely intended), and Sutton and Garrett getting together while Thayer was away in rehab during True Lies? Am I making any sense? Do you see what I'm talking about? (hide spoiler)] Get it together, Sara.

    Again, a really enjoyable novella! Not as great as the first novella, but still really good. This novella showed a great insight into how Laurel and Sutton's relationship developed, as well as what went down between her and Thayer causing him to leave. So sad that I officially have no Lying Game things left to read, now it's really all over *sigh* Again, a really enjoyable novella! Not as great as the first novella, but still really good.

But really where it’s a prequel it doesn’t matter all that much. Having read it slightly out of order now I’ll be curious to see how this impacts my reading of other entries into the series (I most recently finished book #4).

Alas I was wrong – it’s The First Lie. But really where it’s a prequel it doesn’t matter all that much. Having read it slightly out of order now I’ll be curious to see how this impacts my reading of other entries into the series (I most recently finished book #4). The Plot: Sutton Mercer is still alive, first of all. This prequel takes place about three months before she disappears and subsequently is murdered (in theory). Essentially the book sets out to explain two things: how Laurel wormed her way into The Lying Game and why Sutton started dating Garrett. To a lesser degree it also shows what Sutton and Thayer’s relationship was like while he’s still in town / Sutton is still alive. The bulk of the book surrounds Sutton, Charlotte, Madeleine, Laurel, and Garrett and two of his friends going on a weekend trip to Las Vegas. Sutton and her sis are put head-to-head in a series of dares and pranks to determine Laurel’s worthiness. The Good & The Bad: This novella is hideously unrealistic, but I suppose fun. I mean, for one, the geography of the Las Vegas strip is totally off, making me think that Sara Shepard has never set foot there. There is no mystical theme park (the setting for the climax of the book) either, but whatever. For another, I doubt the girls’ parents would be so willing to let them gallivant off for the weekend, even with their excuse of cheering on the science team, ESPECIALLY in light of Thayer’s disappearance. And don’t even get me started on the dares / the girls sneaking into the casinos and clubs so easily. Still if you can get past all that ridiculousness, this is a fairly dense book that prompts plenty of questions as I head into the second half of the series. It’s interesting to see Sutton Mercer, super bitch, in real, live action. She’s pretty horrendously unlikable (as she is when she’s a shrill ghost in the rest of the series) but I also felt twinges of empathy for her given that A) I knew she was going to die and B) if you are as self-centered and idiotic as she is, you probably fully expect to be as easily upset as she is by things like texts that come six hours later (I mock yes, but some of the things she’s upset about I’d be annoyed about too). Interesting, notable points. Emma makes an oblique appearance in this book – who was she talking to? ‘Some guy’ seems to imply it’s not someone she meets later on (like Garrett or Ethan), but perhaps it was just a passing interaction that didn’t register with her. Alternatively it could have been her skeazy foster brother, Travis? Also of note, we find out a bit more about the prank The Lying Game pulled on Ethan. Although we don’t know what it is (and I don’t think the regular series has filled us in), we do know that he lost a prestigious scholarship because of the girls. Laurel and Garrett are both painted with a slightly suspicious brush as well (although Laurel seems to have been cleared by the last book), although I’ve long-held the belief Garrett makes no sense as a suspect because of him propositioning Emma-as-Sutton in the first book (unless he really just hoped Emma would go along with it...in which case, that’s insane / gross). Finally, Thayer’s character is a little puzzling in this entry. I always assumed he was the same age, or even older, than Sutton and her friends but this book makes it very clear how tight Laurel and him really were because he was younger, and that he and Sutton had a bizarre, secret relationship for a year. I'm actually curious to read The First Lie now to figure out how they started - Shepard seems to really be pushing Thayer as integral to the Sutton story. Knowing that he was younger very much dampened the ‘bad boy’ romantic mystique he has in the actual series. I can’t believe that he wouldn’t immediately pick up on Emma as Sutton based on how freaking weird Emma acts when he rolls into town. In fact in general, this book really highlights how different the two girls are, sort of to the detriment of any sort of believability of the series. Sigh. The Bottom Line: Although fluffy and unrealistic as all get out, this novella does provide some intrigue and insight into Sutton Mercer. Anything Memorable?: As per my comments on Las Vegas geography...in one paragraph the girls are walking over the canals in the Venetian hotel, in the next they’re walking by the rollercoaster at the New York, New York. The NY hotel is a good 30-45 minute walk from the Venetian. Beyond that, the mention of Emma being at the NY NY while Sutton is supposedly at a carnival at the ‘end of the strip’ is equally laughable. I mean, she could have taken a cab...but really? 60-Book Challenge: Book #48 in 2013

    I feel like this novella is a clear winner over the other one. In this one, we get to see Sutton's thoughts and interactions with Laurel as well as a full plot about how Laurel got into the Lying Game group. I think we get a lot more insight into Sutton's relationships and thoughts as well as why some things are the way they are in the novels.

    I'm going to say it; Sutton is a horrible person. I can't believe how petty and cruel and unnecessarily nasty she was, especially to Laurel. I cringed a few times when she'd say or do something that was uncalled for. And clearly Sutton didn't get the memo that you're not supposed to date your friends exes. And I find it hard to believe she would throw away her love for Thayer so simply when she thought he was seeing a girl...something which she did not have proof of at all.

    I really don't like the lying game aspect of this series (lol, I know, since it's everywhere), so I really did not enjoy this. Plus, as I've already mentioned... I don't care about Sutton.

    “Sometimes I don’t know why I bother at all. Everyone would probably be happier if I just disappeared, too.” — i. I am Sutton Mercer, resident queen bee, and no one, especially not the boy I love, gets to treat me like an afterthought. So the second The Lying Game novella takes place almost a year after the first novella.

So the second The Lying Game novella takes place almost a year after the first novella. However, the focus of this story is Sutton's relationship with her sister and Sutton's insecurities about always feeling second best in her family, since she's adopted, and Laurel (her sister) isn't. Although it wasn't as entertaining for me as the first novella was, it was still enjoyable and I liked seeing a more vulnerable side of Sutton that didn't involve romance. — ii. “Everything in my life is terrible right now. So excuse me if I cry about it for a few minutes. Excuse me if I’m human.” Just like the first novella, True Lies is also about a bet, but between Sutton and Laurel. Laurel wants to join Sutton's posse (by being an addition to The Lying Game club), but Sutton wants Laurel to stay away. So the girls invite some guy friends and hit Vegas for the weekend (which ironically, is where Emma is living at the moment). Other than learning more about Sutton and her character through her own perspective (while being alive), there's not much else to comment about. The Sutton/Thayer tidbits were nice, even if they were angsty. We also get to see Sutton using Garrett, another popular attractive teenager who likes Sutton (but obviously doesn't know about Thayer since that relationship is a secret). And since Thayer went MIA (for reasons we find out about in the actual book series), Sutton has this constant craving to feel wanted and loved 24/7 (but we already know she never actually liked Garrett). I got nothing else to say really, it was another short novella, with a little less substance than the first one had, but still great. I would also read this novella after finishing the series to enjoy it to its fullest extent. - Pranks aren’t so funny when you’re the butt of the joke. I can feel everyone in the club staring at me, pitying me. No one thinks I’m fabulous. No one wants me to be a model or an actress. I feel humiliated that I even thought that.

    True Lies takes place after the first novella, The First Lie, so probably a year later. Sutton and Thayer are still a full fledged secret couple until they have a fight. Then, Thayer disappears. Meanwhile, Laurel wants to become a member of The Lying Game and gets Mads and Char on her side. This initiates a Sudden Death scenario: a series of challenges. If Laurel wins, she's in. If Sutton wins, Laurel can never become a member at all. The place where this will take place is Las Vegas!

In the midst of all this, Thayer contacts Sutton and tells her he needs space. It's no surprise when she goes to Garrett's welcoming arms... I liked True Lies. Once again, it gives more insight to Sutton's character, mostly focusing on her less than desirable traits. Then again, Laurel was shown to be just as shifty and crafty as she was. And what about Ethan and Emma being there as well? I know my theory on who killed Sutton is correct.

    Thayer's gone missing and no one's had contact with him except Sutton. Being the sexy, mysterious boy he is, he doesn't give her any details. Sutton's done with his ways and goes out with Charlotte's ex Garrett. Meanwhile Charlotte and Madeline invoke the Sudden Death Clause in TLG rulebook to initiate Laurel into their group. As if life couldn't get any worse, boyfriend's gone for unknown reasons, now her sister's stealing her best friends.

The pranks the girls got up to for Laurel's admission into the Lying Game was fun and interesting. Sutton was quite the bitch, even though she did make up for it in the end. It's easy to see why someone would've killed her! We even get a special appearance from a certain Sutton doppelganger. Great tie in to the series.

    I found this SO boring. I expected to like it because it was from Sutton's point of view and it gave a little more history into the group dynamics before she died. But it was boring and I don't think I really learned anything new about any of the characters. And on top of that, Sutton was horrible in this book. I found this SO boring.

    I enjoyed learning more about Sutton's life before she was murdered. I think it focused a little too much on the Garrett-Sutton relationship. It was interesting how Ethan was also at the Bellagio at the same time and I wanted to see more interaction between him and Sutton. Despite Garrett's anger issues, I don't think he is Sutton's killer. The Lying Games prank-off was cool especially since it was in Vegas. It's funny how Emma was at the NY NY Roller coaster and Char thought she was Sutton. If I enjoyed learning more about Sutton's life before she was murdered.

    This little novella got on my nerves. I read it and these girls actually irritated me. I guess it may have had something to do with the order that I read them which was the order it was shown in Goodreads. Anyway. I probably should have read it before I started the series. But as I finished it did get a tiny bit better and I felt less irritated

    It was kinda a pointless read. It wasn’t bad, just most of the stuff already happened in other books. It basically was a novella of how Laurel got into Lying Game and the relationship with her and Sutton- oh and a big cluster of pranks.

    Not unlike The First Lie, this interim novella was short but sweet. I actually liked it a little better, because there was more action and Sutton's character was developed much more in this book, especially her feelings towards Thayer.

A lot of filler, nothing that gives clues as to the identity of Sutton's killer, but still worth reading. After reading this book, I can't help but think about how mean Sutton is. That girl has issues, or HAD issues before she died. She had such a sense of entitlement, like she was too good for everyone and everything. She had a lot of power over people. Nobody would dare stand up to her. When her friends finally do and insist on bringing in Laurel, we see yet another side of her we haven't seen before. Underneath all that bitchiness is a good person. Unfortunately Sutton will never have the chance to show people. But maybe Emma can redeem Sutton if we ever find out who the killer is. There is one more book left. The blurb for Seven Minutes in Heaven says that Sutton's body is finally found. So now is everyone going to think Emma killed her? If I get to the end and the killer isn't identified, I'm going to protest outside HarperTeen's office and demand the answer. Emma, PLEASE figure it out already! http://youngadultgloss.blogspot.com

    This little novella was full of filler! It might as well have been a 2 page short story instead of a 90+ page novelette. I found myself skipping past detailed descriptions of a pool or building to try to get to something interesting. I love descriptive books that pull you into a whole different universe.... but there was literally nothing to grab my attention in True Lies.

Sutton, of course being Sutton..., is not okay with her baby sister infiltrating her exclusive club. The girls challenge Sutton to a battle of pranks, if you will. May the best liar win. It uncovers a bit about Sutton and Laurel's sisterly relationship and gives Sutton's side of the "stealing Garrett" story line. It shows a bit of Sutton's soft side to reveal she's no always a heartless bitch. Overall it's a decent story, but didn't impress me. I just found myself bored. On to book number 6!
