Real Life & Liars received a lovely review at Athena’s Bookshelf, calling it both a “doozy” and a “wonderfully crafted family drama.” Malena Lott writes, “Riggle will be on my must read list from now on.”

And since it’s Deb Kristina‘s launch week (woo hoo!), we’ll be running a contest all week! Everyone who comments will automatically be entered to win a signed copy of REAL LIFE & LIARS as well as a love note from each of the Debs. So comment often – to show 2009’s last Deb out some love – and to have more chances to win!
