From the author's website:
When seventh grader Georges (the s is silent) moves into a Brooklyn apartment building, he meets Safer, a twelve-year-old coffee-drinking loner and self-appointed spy.
At times this book becomes more about bullying and teasing, and at times it's about choosing right from wrong. The bullying concept seemed a bit forced into an otherwise well-told tale.
This is also an example of an author who should have written a female main character (and it wouldn't have changed the story; with Stead's writing style, a girl would have made the character seem more real.
It's one of the more well-written books of this year's Mark Twain Award nominees. Readers will be confused by the title from the very beginning. Who is the liar? Who is the spy? And the answer will not come until the end of the story.
