I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Eliza Jane Brazier is an author, screenwriter, and journalist. She currently lives in Los Angeles, where she is developing If I Disappear for television.
“When you’re rich, you can control everything.”
Lyla married into an extremely wealthy family, and she had adapted to their thinking. Mostly. Demi has struggled and gone without her entire life, so when she has an opportunity to see his other half lives- she takes it. Graham is entitled in all the ways you’d expect of someone who grew up disgustingly wealthy. And he and his mother, Margo, have a unique relationship. And now, they plan to include Lyla. Welcome to the game.
This was a well-written book, and the storyline was well thought out. The balance of rich vs. poor was played very well, and the characters reflected that.
There isn’t much to like regarding the characters. They are all extreme victims of their circumstances. Whether they are rich or poor, the likability is low. But that is the point.
I loved that a huge theme throughout this novel was redemption. The precarious balance between good and evil, wanting to be good, and being good. It was very well represented and well portrayed.
This was a hard book to put down. The story is told engagingly, and even when you hate the characters- you have to know what happens next.
I enjoyed this story a lot. Very fresh, unique, and a beautiful game of cat and mouse. The twists and turns were well done, and the game is more than entertaining.
