Also by this author: We Were Liars
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Publication date: September 7th 2017

From the author of the unforgettable New York Times 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.

Waiting on Wednesday: Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart

If you’ve been in the YA world for awhile, you know that E. Lockhart writes fierce femmes who aren’t afraid to assert their authority over men.

See: Ruby Oliver. See: Frankie Landau-Banks. See: Cadence Sinclair (P.S. We Were Liars deluxe edition coming out in May!!)

Ms. Lockhart takes her time with her YA books, only publishing every few years. And the books are usually short. But they are packed with perfect diction, brilliant prose, and twists and turns that slay you.

In my opinion, it is very, very hard to write a believable, actual “holy crap” suspense novel. And it’s even harder to sell it in the young adult genre, which already sees contemporary books as a second sister to fantasy.

No one is writing what E. Lockhart writes. And that’s because no one can do it better than she can.

Am I waiting impatiently for Genuine Fraud? Hell yeah, I am.
