From the author of the unforgettable bestseller WE WERE LIARS comes a masterful new psychological suspense novel-the story of a young woman whose diabolical smarts are her ticket into a charmed life. But how many times can someone reinvent themselves?
You be the judge.
Imogen is a runaway heiress, an orphan, a cook, and a cheat.
Jule is a fighter, a social chameleon, and an athlete.
An intense friendship. A disappearance. A murder, or maybe two.
A bad romance, or maybe three.
Blunt objects, disguises, blood, and chocolate. The American dream, superheroes, spies, and villains.
A girl who refuses to give people what they want from her.
A girl who refuses to be the person she once was.
Praise for GENUINE FRAUD
'It is so good and you will devour it in one sitting . Then re-read it immediately .' @gayleforman (Gayle Forman on Twitter)
'It's a captivating , suspenseful story made all the more bewitching by Lockhart's twisty narrative' Booklist
' Unsettling storytelling, filled with energy ' Kirkus, starred review
'An excellent choice recommended for teens and adults who love twisty mysteries and tough-as-nails teen girls' School Library Journal, starred review
'Lockhart blends the privileged glamour of WE WERE LIARS with a twisty, backward-running plot that's slick with cinematic violence . A bracing pace, a slew of far-flung locations, and a storyline that runs mostly in reverse will keep readers on their toes , never entirely sure of what these girls are responsible for or capable of.'
