by E. Lockhart

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 05/09/2017

 
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 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.'
