Jilly Gagnon lives in Salem, Massachusetts, but is originally from Minnesota, a fact she’ll likely inform you of within minutes of meeting you. In the past, Jilly has written humor, news, essays, and op-ed pieces for Newsweek, Elle, Vanity Fair, The Huffington Post, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, The Onion, and The Toast, among others. Jilly loves terrible TV and excellent Manhattans. She often carries on far-too-involved conversations with her cats.
“This time I was going to find out how the story ended.”
Holy toxic friendships. The build-up for this book is so twisted, devious, and calculated that I could not put this book down.
The way this story is told is clever; it’s a mix between past and present, with a twist of creative storytelling. I was shocked at the twists throughout this book. This was such a house of cards!
The characters were not likable, but that was the point. It drives the point that it’s difficult to truly know what someone is capable of. Secrets can divide, and secrets can bind.
This was an engaging story with an interesting plot. It’s a quick read and will suck you into a dangerous world of secrets, lies, and greed.
