Book cover for Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart

Unreliable, not unrelatable—YA thriller told backward

Jule is posing as Imogen, but we don’t know why when we meet her in a Cabo resort. She’s strong and smart and works hard to overcome childhood trauma.  The reader can identify with her. But should we?

As the story hops back through the preceding weeks, a horrifying picture of desperation and determination emerges.
