For those of you who know who E. Lockhart is I am sure you were as excited as I was to hear about her next novel, “Genuine Fraud”. True to the feel of “We Were Liars”, this book pulls you into a circle of friends and immerses you in a life you can only imagine.
Have you ever imagined your life differently, if you were only another person? I know I have. To ease that gnawing urge to change I would cut my hair, change its color, wear different clothing and sometimes adopt different slang. So many times we are told as children that we can be whatever we wanted to be. In Genuine Fraud, Julietta West Williams, or “Jule”, can be whomever she wants to be. Speak in a multitude of accents and has the ability to reinvent herself as quickly as a topic change and adapt to her surroundings effortlessly. She is the center of her own story, the hero.
Imogen Sokoloff, an orphan turned heiress, adopted into high society with the best upbringing despises being held to expectations. She rebels at every turn when held to particular standards and thrives on her ability to charm others and then leaving them. A heartbreaker in her own right. But can she break the heart of Jule who proclaims that she has no heart?
Genuine Fraud ends at the beginning and works its way to the start, chaptering the friendship of these two girls and a global romp from Martha’s Vineyard to Cabo San Lucas with a body count that leaves you questioning. This intriguing suspense novel keeps you on your toes trying to solve the origins of the ever changing Jule. A must read for those who love puzzles. "You be the judge."
Set to be released September 2017.
