    David Laphams pencils work well for his series. He can convey everything with perfectly clarity. The flow is clear as well, as is his pacing. Everything about it is great that way. But there is nothing these pencils do which amazes me. His art makes perfect sense for the story being told and I continue to applaud Lapham for drawing characters that look like people rather than sex goddesses, it adds to the level of realism the story is based in. The story may be absurd in real terms, but much of it is firmly based in fiction and Lapham has steered clear of both science fiction and fantasy elements which allows for a continued shock value for the series.

    Mature content matter aside, this book is certainly not for everyone. If you are a fan of Lapham, you are no doubt reading and enjoying the series already. If you haven't picked it up, it really is unlike just about anything out there on the bookshelves, but it's worth your time and money should you be looking for something very different on your next trip to the shop.

    Maybe Im being sadistic for the characters on the page. Or maybe Im relating to them way too much for my own good and have become addicted to a monthly masochistic fix. I dont know. I do know that Ive enjoyed this fifth book in the same way that I enjoyed the ones before it. Im almost positive that all you fans of the series out there will agree. Its rough, tough and gritty, its Young Liars. My only advice is to get used to it. Read Full Review
