Trust Me, I'm Lying (Paperback)
NEVER JUDGE A CROOK BY HER COVER.
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 so she can learn to mingle with the upper crust. For extra spending money, Julep runs petty scams for her classmates while dodging the dean of students and maintaining an A+ (okay, A-) average. She's a fixer, and she's good at it. But it's not what she wants. And soon, she'll hang up her grifter skills for good.
But when she comes home one day to a ransacked apartment and her father missing, Julep's carefully laid plans for going straight start to unravel. Even with help from St. Agatha's resident Prince Charming, Tyler Richland, and her loyal hacker, 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 her literal life at stake, Julep will need to use every grift in the book to find and save her dad before his mark finds--and eliminates--her.
Fans of Ally Carter's Heist Society novels will love this teen mystery/thriller with sarcastic wit, a hint of romance, and Ocean's Eleven-inspired action.
