Cover image and summary from Goodreads:

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.

I was really excited to read this book. I super enjoyed We Were Liars, so I was definitely excited when my friend gave me an ARC, and then the publisher sent me a finished copy.

So. I really wanted to love this. I really really did. But while I definitely thought the format was really interesting (the story is kind of told backwards), I didn’t love the book as a whole. I LIKED it.  It was interesting and the need to see how the pieces fit together kept me reading past my bedtime, but I felt somewhat emotionally disconnected from the story.

This was a quick read, and I did like it, but I think it’s one of those that will not really stand out from all of the other books I’ve read this year.
