Overview
This is not a story of forgiveness...
The mystery of their best friend's murder drives four girls to destroy the Gregory family. Emily Thorne would be proud.
Everyone at Hawthorne Lake Country Club saw Willa Ames-Rowan climb into a boat with James Gregory, the Club's heir apparent.
And everyone at Hawthorne Lake Country Club watched him return. Alone.
They all know he killed her. But none of them will say a word. The Gregory family is very, very good at making problems go away.
Enter the W.A.R.--the war to avenge Willa Ames-Rowan. Four girls. Four very different motives for justice and revenge, and only one rule: destroy the Gregory family at any cost.

The Roecker sisters (the Liar Society books) weave money, power, and secrets into this suspenseful story of four teenage girls determined to avenge their friend’s murder. Beautiful, rich Willa Ames-Rowan saw good in everyone. That’s why her sudden drowning the summer before her senior year has everyone at the prestigious Hawthorne Lake Country Club mourning, but afraid to point fingers at the most probable culprits: the owner’s grandsons, James and Trip Gregory. James and Trip won “the genetic jackpot” and are ridiculously wealthy, and their every mistake is erased by their controlling grandfather. But now they’ve almost certainly committed murder, and Willa’s friends—steely Madge (Willa’s sister), rebellious Lina, bookish outcast Rose, and insecure Sloane—want justice. The authors skillfully build tension and suspicion, and the girls’ voices shine through as they take turns remembering the night of Willa’s death and unveiling their own secrets. What isn’t clear is a motive, which remains as murky as the lake Willa drowned in. Still, readers will find bits of themselves in these girls and eagerly follow them as they uncover the truth. Ages 14–up. Agent: Catherine Drayton, Inkwell Management. (July)
