Five YA novels featuring compelling liars

Darren Croucher writes YA novels with a partner, under the name A.D. Croucher. At the BN Teen blog he tagged five YA novels featuring seven of his favorite liars, including:
Lou and Christian: Little White Lies, by Katie Dale

Another double winner in a novel jam-packed with world heavyweight champion liars. Lou comes from a notorious family, which is a secret she desperately tries to keep from mysterious stranger Christian. As they get closer, it becomes clear that Christian, too, has been lying to an extraordinary degree, and has an insane secret of his own that could destroy everything between them. How can two people find a connection when both have been lying about almost everything? As their world burns around them, Lou and Christian try to answer that question. This wins the Pretty Little Liars Award for Best Ensemble of Liars in a Drama.
