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.

Comment:
This was an addictive read, but despite the twists and turns, this book seemed to lack any sort of meaning or message. The backwards timeline was intriguing at first but mostly just gave me a headache. And the main character's motivations were hazy at best. Skip this one and read We Were Liars by this same author instead, for a better unreliable narrator type of story.  (+1 vote)
