Praise for This Is W.A.R.

-Teen Vogue Hottest YA Books Pick-

“This action-packed pageturner has it all: romance, friendship, and a twisted mystery that kept us on the edge of our seats until the last page.”
—Justine Magazine

“With twists and turns on just about every page, This Is W.A.R. will have you on the edge of your seat, guessing until the very end. It’s the YA mystery I’ve been waiting for.”
—Liz Norris, author of Unraveling

“[This Is W.A.R. explores] important questions about money, power and privilege.”
—Kirkus Reviews

This Is W.A.R. was an exciting read with perfect proportions of dark secrets and light humor…. Take a break from balmy beach romances and give this mystery a try!”

“I was hooked and kept reading—needing to know more about each girl and their secrets.”
—Girls in the Stacks
“I was so engrossed I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.”
Luna’s Little Library
“These two authors have created characters that rhyme. That fit together. These four girls are so different, yet, you could see them as best friends anytime. The action in this book drowned you in it, you get immersed in the story and you just don’t want to let go.”
Insomnia of Books

“One of my favorite reads so far this year. This Is W.A.R. by Lisa and Laura Roecker will knock your socks off!”
—Elena Johnson, author of the Possession series

This Is W.A.R. sidestepped several clichés, both by flipping them and by embracing them, and I loved the way the story unfolded, slowly revealing more secrets than just what was going on with the Gregorys… I stand with Willa and all the other women like her. All the women—and men—who are victims of people rich enough to buy silence, people who manipulate the truth and poison justice.” 
—Kirkus Book Report

“A fun mystery…. the spotlight shining on the lifestyle and problems of the rich and famous (or just the rich) makes for enjoyable reading. Is justice that different for the extremely wealthy? Read this novel and think about it.”
—The Examiner

“The plot and pacing were spot on—keeping me turning the pages and racing through the novel in only two sittings. Definitely give this one a read!”

“I adored this book. It was a great heart pounding mystery that had me hooked from the very first page.”
—Rachel Reads

This Is W.A.R. is yet another fast-paced novel by Lisa and Laura Roecker shrouded in mystery and suspense… an addictive mystery full of lies, dirty money, and a truth just begging to get to the surface.” 
—Our Thoughts Precisley 

“Murder? Vigilante justice? Innocence lost? Battles won? Destruction on the horizon? Yup, must read it.”
—Literary Me
