Summary

From the author of We Were Liars, which John Green called “utterly unforgettable,” comes a mind-bending, New York Times bestselling thriller told in reverse. “Compulsively readable.” (Entertainment Weekly) “An addictive and shocking feminist thriller.” (Lena Dunham) Imogen lives at the Playa Grande Resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. She spends her days working out in the hotel gym and telling other guests how she was forced out of Stanford. But Imogen isn’t really Imogen. She’s Jule. And she’s on the run from something. Or someone. Which means...where is the real Imogen? Rewind: Jule and Imogen are the closest of friends. Obsessed with each other, even. Imogen is an orphan, an heiress; she and Jule spend a summer together in a house on Martha’s Vineyard, sharing secrets they’d never reveal to another soul. But that was months ago. Where is Immie now? And why is Jule using her name?  “You will devour it.” (Gayle Forman, best-selling author of If I Stay) “Moves at a breakneck speed.” (Marie Claire)  “As with E. Lockhart’s previous novel, the best-selling We Were Liars [readers] will likely finish the last page and flip right back to the beginning to search for clues they missed.” (Chicago Tribune)

Summary

A special, dramatized audiobook version read by the author and Roshina Ratnam.

I know you don’t want to talk sometimes. Sometimes because it hurts and sometimes because you’re just not supposed to talk about what you want to talk about.

Sometimes it can be hard to say, “this is beautiful,” when no one else can see what you see. Or, “Here, this is where the pain is.” But some part of you knows, the truth about the words you cannot say is that they only hurt until you say them. They only hurt until the person who needs to hear them, hears them. Because we are human, and the closest we’ve ever come to showing each other who we really are, and how we love, is with words. So I’m going to try to say to you here, what I wish you’d say to me too. Please.

Listen. We can change things.

Here.

Summary

Frankie Landau-Banks at age 14: Debate Club. Her father's "Bunny Rabbit". A mildly geeky girl attending a highly competitive boarding school. Frankie Landau-Banks at age 15:A knockout figure.A sharp tongue.A chip on her shoulder.And a gorgeous new senior boyfriend: the supremely goofy, word-obsessed Matthew Livingston. Frankie Laundau-Banks. No longer the kind of girl to take "no" for an answer. Especially when "no" means she's excluded from her boyfriend's all-male secret society. Not when her ex boyfriend shows up in the strangest of places. Not when she knows she's smarter than any of them. When she knows Matthew is lying to her. And when there are so many, many pranks to be done. Frankie Landau-Banks, at age 16:Possibly a criminal mastermind. This is the story of how she got that way.
