I was so excited to get my hands on this copy of Lockhart’s forthcoming young adult suspense novel from the #KidLitExchange network of reviewers!
Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart
(Delacorte Press – September 5, 2017)
What a unique story and format! Bravo to Lockhart for writing this fast-paced YA suspense novel in reverse chronological order and keeping me guessing throughout the entire book. It reads like a spy novel and will definitely satisfy fans of the author’s hit title WE WERE LIARS. Trying to figure out just who Jule was surely kept me on my toes, and the grittiness of the story was refreshing in today’s realistic YA market.
I was expecting a bit more of a shocker at the end (or was it the beginning??) but I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
Thanks to the #kidlitexchange review network for this review copy – all opinions are my own.
