Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart

Reviewed by Melissa Beck (Library Staff)

I found this thriller to be a puzzle of a book with pieces that click satisfyingly into place along the way, as it begins with chapter 18 and works its way backwards to chapter 1.

At the center of the story is Jule, a bold and very clever (if a bit savage and detached) character who is inventing her own life based on the source material of superhero and spy movies, as well as her observations of the obliviously privileged.

Overall, I’d recommend it. While not earth-shattering, this short book is undeniably captivating–and there are far worse ways to spend a couple of hours.
