Staff Reviews


Jule West Williams considers herself the antithesis to the "great white hetero hero on his fucking epic journey” and internally narrates her life like an action movie, giving herself a tragic backstory (the orphaned daughter of secret agents who were murdered in front of her). She’s on the run from her past(s) and as we move through the story in reverse, we see Jule don several different wigs and corresponding personas until it’s no longer clear what is fact and what is fiction. Her life becomes entwined with wealthy heiress Imogen Sokoloff who flits from Martha’s Vineyard to Paris on a whim, a fast friend whom she admires and envies with equal passion. But how far will Jule go to craft the life for herself that she feels she deserves?

Be among the first to meet Imogen and Jule

"Compulsively readable." --Entertainment Weekly

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.

"You will devour it." --Gayle Forman, bestselling author of If I Stay

"Fans of E. Lockhart's We Were Liars will love this . . . and definitely won't see the ending coming." --HelloGiggles.com

"Tangled secrets, diabolical lies and, ultimately, a mind-blowing outcome are crafted with the plotted precision we expect (and love ) from E. Lockhart." --Justine Magazine

"Moves at a breakneck speed." --Marie Claire

"As with E. Lockhart's previous novel, the best-selling "We Were Liars," readers] will likely finish the last page and flip right back to the beginning to search for clues they missed." --Chicago Tribune
