Genuine Fraud

(1)

Soon to be a major motion picture produced by stars of HBO series GIRLS, Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner

From the author of the unforgettable bestseller WE WERE LIARS comes a suspenseful new psychological thriller - 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

Addictive and shocking feminist thriller' Lena Dunham

'A brilliant, twisty thriller--I loved it!' Karen M McManus, bestselling author of One Of Us Is Lying

'It is so good and you will devour it in one sitting. Then re-read it immediately.' @gayleforman (Gayle Forman on Twitter)

Compelling and unique, I was absolutely hooked' Jenny Blackhurst, bestselling author of How I Lost You

'It's a captivating, suspenseful story made all the more bewitching by Lockhart's twisty narrative' Booklist

'An excellent choicerecommended 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.' Publishers Weekly

Soon became predictable and boring
von Lisa F. aus Berlin am 12.11.2017
Bewertet: Einband: gebundene Ausgabe

Okay, wow, what a letdown. After loving "We Were Liars" I was very excited to dive into this one. Sadly, this book didn't deliver at all. I really liked the aspect of the story being told backwards in time. That's about it. The story was underwhelming. The concept felt like... Okay, wow, what a letdown. After loving "We Were Liars" I was very excited to dive into this one. Sadly, this book didn't deliver at all. I really liked the aspect of the story being told backwards in time. That's about it. The story was underwhelming. The concept felt like "The Talented Mr. Ripley" which is not a compliment as I didn't enjoy that book very much either but Mr. Ripley at least had that novelty feeling to it as I had never read a book like that. "Genuine Fraud" feels like a watered down version instead, with a few suprises in the beginning but then it became predictable and boring. And the little twist at the end couldn't save the book.
