just finished reading

I liked the set up of this book, once I realized there was nothing wrong with my audio--the narrative begins with Chapter 18 and unspools from there. That was cool. I didn't like the unreliable narrator, I didn't find anything to root for and she was kind of flat and predictable. Actually, I didn't like any of the characters. Sometimes there are some gray areas with characters and you can find something to identify with, but not in this case.

I didn't love the book. It was ok. I kept thinking about The Talented Mr. Ripley. It's a teen version with a female lead.

From the publisher:
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.
