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.

All we can be sure of, as we read this story, as it weaves through the times and places, is that the central character acquires and uses different identities in the way that you and I change our underwear.

She says she is young, but when did her wanderings really start? At what age?

The stories that she tells appear incompatible and they change – she admits – according to her audience.

So who is the true person? And what is her true story you are left guessing until the final chapter.

An interesting way of telling this story that initially seems confusing but once you get into your stride is quite revealing.
