REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: This is W.A.R. by Lisa & Laura Roecker


This is not a story of forgiveness…

The mystery of their best friend’s murder drives four girls to destroy the Gregory family.

Everyone at Hawthorne Lake Country Club saw Willa Ames-Rowan climb into a boat with James Gregory, the Club’s heir apparent.

And everyone at Hawthorne Lake Country Club watched him return. Alone.

They all know he killed her. But none of them will say a word. The Gregory family is very, very good at making problems go away.

Enter the W.A.R.—the war to avenge Willa Ames-Rowan. Four girls. Four very different motives for justice and revenge, and only one rule: destroy the Gregory family at any cost.


Lisa and Laura Roecker are sisters-turned-writing partners with a passion for good books, pop culture, and Bravo programming. Not necessarily in that order. A prepubescent obsession with Lois Duncan and their mother’s insistence that they read Men Are Just Desserts inspired This is WAR. The sisters live in Cleveland, Ohio, in separate residences. Their husbands wouldn’t agree to a duplex. Cyberstalking is always encouraged at and @landlroecker on Twitter.


I’ve been waiting on this book for MONTHS! It is one of those books that had my attention the minute I started reading it. I love something with a little mystery, but The is W.A.R. is more than just a mysterious book. It is full of drama, deceit, lies, and so much more. I couldn’t help but think of Pretty Little Liars and Revenge [two of my favorite shows] all mixed together. Something I wasn’t expecting was the multiple POVs. Each section of the book is written in a different girls perspective, which I loved! Being able to read from various perspectives really allowed me to piece together the story and answer questions I had. The Roecker sisters really know how to keep their readers on edge and nearly biting off all of their nails…which I may or may not have actually done.

This is W.A.R. is definitely a summer must read!

Overall, 5 out 5 stars! (or should I say keys 😉

SOHO Teen has some awesome extras for those who JOIN THE WAR. You can earn a key necklace (just like the one the girls wear in the book) just for buying your copy! (Limited supply, so hurry!) Find out more information HERE.

    This book sounds awesome. I love a good revenge story and it will be interesting to see one from four different points of view.
