"Donovan?" She stepped forward, close. She looked up at him with big eyes. Then she brought her right forearm up hard, snapped his head back, and punched him in the groin."
Eight year old Jule woke up in the dark. She went downstairs and found the entire house in a shambles. Drawers pulled out..the whole thing. Her parents' beds are empty. They aren't in the bathroom. When she goes outside, she sees their bodies lying face down in the grass. The phone line in the house has been disconnected and by the time Jule goes back outside her parents' bodies have disappeared.
That your kind of girl? Meet Jule and her bag full of wigs and aliases. She's looking for a new version of herself..and she's made it all the way to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. How did she get here? Who did she kill? Can she stay one step ahead of the stories she's told about herself and of the law?
Tough as nails and one thrill after another. This girl is a Houdini getting herself into and out of one version of her life and then another. Perfect for readers who love a female character who turns her back on every version of the girls who play by the rules.

From the author of the unforgettable New York Times bestseller We Were Liars comes a masterful new psychological suspense novel—the story of a young woman whose diabolical smarts are her ticket into a charmed life. But how many times can someone reinvent themselves? You be the judge.
Imogen is a runaway heiress, an orphan, a cook, and a cheat. Jule is a fighter, a social chameleon, and an athlete. An intense friendship. A disappearance. A murder, or maybe two. A bad romance, or maybe three. Blunt objects, disguises, blood, and chocolate. The American dream, superheroes, spies, and villains. A girl who refuses to give people what they want from her. A girl who refuses to be the person she once was.--from the publisher
