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.'
