Liars and Fools by Robin Stevenson- ADVISABLE

Stevenson, Robin. Liars and Fools, 246 pgs. Orca Book Publishers, 2010. $9.95.  Language- PG (5 swears, 0 ‘f’) Violence- G, Sexual Content- G.  After her mom dies in a sailing accident in the South Pacific, Fiona has done everything in her power to resist moving on with her life. She thinks that her dad was too hard on her mom about her sailing, and that’s part of why she never came home. So when her dad starts dating a psychic who claims to have connections with her mother, Fiona lashes out. I liked this book.  It showed Fiona’s frustration in dealing with her mother’s death, and how she finally comes to terms with her life.  Middle School, High School- Advisable. Student Reviewer: AL
