Trust Me, I'm Lying
by Mary Elizabeth Summer
Releases |October 14th 2014 by Delacorte Press|
Julep Dupree tells lies. A lot of them. She’s a con artist, a master of disguise, and a sophomore at Chicago’s swanky St. Agatha High, where her father, an old-school grifter with a weakness for the ponies, sends her to so she can learn to mingle with the upper crust. For extra spending money Julep doesn’t rely on her dad—she runs petty scams for her classmates while dodging the dean of students and maintaining an A+ (okay, A-) average.
But when she comes home one day to a ransacked apartment and her father gone, Julep’s carefully laid plans for an expenses-paid golden ticket to Yale start to unravel. Even with help from St. Agatha’s resident Prince Charming, Tyler Richland, and her loyal hacker sidekick, Sam, Julep struggles to trace her dad’s trail of clues through a maze of creepy stalkers, hit attempts, family secrets, and worse, the threat of foster care. With everything she has at stake, Julep’s in way over her head . . . but that’s not going to stop her from using every trick in the book to find her dad before his mark finds her. Because that would be criminal.

Why I'm Waiting...
I don't know. This sounds like it'll be a fast paced and lightweight read and of course I'm a sucker for a mystery. I'd like to give this one a try to see what it's all about.


  1. Ooh intriguing! The title makes me laugh since it's so contradicting! ;)

    Here's my WoW

  6. This one has been on my list for awhile now, so excited. I don't like the new cover design though =(

    1. I've seen the other and I think I like it better as well

  7. This does sound fun. I like the look on the girl's face; very mischievous...and her necklace is cool. :)

  8. This sounds amazing! I love the mystery aspect but what I love most about this is the whole con-artist element to it. I can't wait to pick this one up! Great pick, Janina! Added to TBR! :D
