Genuine Fraud

Lockhart, E. (2017). Genuine Fraud. NY: Delacorte Press.

It is very rare that you read a book and are shocked by the ending. We Were Liars by the same author was one of those books. Although Genuine Fraud is completely different, genuinefraudthere are parts of this book that surprised.

It begins at the end of the book, where one of the main characters, Jules, is running from the FBI, but you don’t know why. The setting starts off in a swanky resort in a warm climate. From there you begin to read backwards and you slowly discover why she is running from the police. What you discover is a young woman who has been trained to be a spy since her spy parents were murdered when she was little. She has become a polarizing villain, who is clever, independent, deceiving, and will do whatever it takes to not get caught, including murder. I found this to be a highly entertaining, fact paced read. Can’t give away anymore! 🙂

Still, The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks is firmly my favourite of E. Lockhart’s.
