This book is rather unique. It's written backwards. The chapters are numbered backwards. You find out the information backwards. I enjoyed this mystery and I hear it is going to be made into a movie. I found the main character's ability to change herself intriguing and it made more sense as the story progressed... or is it regressed??

This was a dissappintment after reading "we were liars." I absolutely loved Liars, but this one fell short. There were some similarities in the communication style of Jule and Palo to Gat and Cadence, but other than that I found the book unsurprising and the characters un-relatable. Maybe if I'd red this before "we were liars", I'd like it more.

I really enjoyed this book. Lockhart's writing style flows easily, the main characters are intriguing, and the suspense in this story makes you want to keep reading. I finished this book in one night! If you read her other suspense novel "We Were Liars" and enjoyed that, there's a good chance you'll like this one too.

Much like "We Were Liars" makes you evaluate events and the role that an entire family has in events, "Genuine Fraud" makes you evaluate exactly what a friendship is and is Jule more one than the other.

When we meet Jule she is living it up at a fancy resort. We then follow her story and history with her friend Imogen back in time over the course of a year or so. Is there a friendship between these two? Is one simply obsessed in the other. How is Jule doing what she doing and did Imogen cause anything? It's a perfectly enjoyable, albeit predictable, thriller. That being said I did basically inhale it in two sittings.
