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.
AAAAA, WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT!
The book is set very clever – a reader learns what happened – every chapter brings it one step prior to what I have read just now. Still I would suggest for you not to cheat while reading.
Genuine Fraud is about a broken personality who has no real sense of what she is doing, she has, however, a wish to be belong and be loved, needed and every time facing denial she goes off and tries to prove them wrong in the most brutal way, so they have no chance to change. I could say this is not entirely a youth read as some may get wrong ideas in one’s mind. This is a twisted mystery, where one drama escalates to another one and nothing is solved. The book holds so many unanswered topics that it kills to read any further.
The main character Jules has witnessed her parents death and being taken by the same person, her mental stage and whatsoever is under question in my opinion, she is jealous to mostly everyone and doesn’t approve her best friend having relationships with all the guys. She creates double stories and hides her truth self at all times, to everyone and about everything her stories, as a compulsive lair don’t match. For those who start to question her, they must go..
I picked up the book because of the high popularity and the cover intrigued me.
I read through the book until I reached a point – I don’t care what it is about, I had prior read a review which said it was so interesting and after the last page the reader went straight to the very first page to reread again, and that was the only thing that kept me reading further. But, my own thoughts did not reach this stage at all – kind of wasted reading time.
