Trust Me, I'm Lying
by Mary Elizabeth Summer

There's just something about this book that I'm so drawn to. Maybe it's the cover. Or the fact that they're pitching it as a YA Ocean's Eleven. Con artists are the best. I haven't read Heist Society but Trust Me, I'm Lying looks like it could garner the same kind of praise.

Plus...plus...the main character is named Julep! WTF. I don't know why I love that but I do! It's so unique and kooky that I can't help but be drawn to it. The only downside: the release date is October. That's a hella long wait.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

The Treatment (The Program, #2)
Fans of Ally Carter, especially her Heist Society readers, will love this teen mystery/thriller with sarcastic wit, a hint of romance, and Ocean’s Eleven–inspired action.

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.

  1. I'm not usually into these kinds of books (that's actually my best friend's job), but this one sounds like it'll be a bit different from the cheesy spy stuff I've come across.

    Or maybe it's just that cover that I can't stop staring at :D
