Book Review - Liar, Liar, Head on Fire

Liar, Liar, Head on Fire

About the Book
On the outside, twelve-year-old Hector seems like he’s got it all. He’s strong, fast, and rumored to be the favorite to win this year’s Zeus Cup at the Mt. Olympus Spartan Race, the highest honor in his small Midwestern town. Hector’s parents and his five siblings trained to win gold in their twelfth year, but all fell short. Now Hector is their last chance to bring glory to the family, and he’s starting to feel the pressure. After a mysterious (and extremely talented) girl named Mae obliterates him at the practice run, Hector is desperate to do whatever it takes to win and make his family proud. Cue a certain god of the Underworld who has a mighty proposition for Hector: Hades will give him godlike strength and speed in exchange for the trophy at the end of the race. Seems like a pretty good trade-off. But as Hector soon discovers, no deal with Hades is as straightforward as it seems, and he’s going to have to go the distance or risk going from hero to zero.

My Take on the Book
My family are huge Disney fans and whether the story is similar or completely different from stories that they know they tend to love them, and this book did not disappoint them in the least. One of the things my daughters loved about this book, but also in the series of books was the American Chiller vibe that you have as you read them. It is written to chill you but also entertain you throughout and it does not disappoint. There is even humor spattered through the book too. You get to meet new characters that have unique interests that you can relate to and you get to reconnect with Hades and his minions which is always fun. All-in-all this is a great book for all that love chills and Disney thrills!
