With my eyes closed and Alex's core friends all around me, it was like I'd become my big sister, or something just as good. And so who cared if they were calling it Alex's party? One thing I knew: it would be remembered as mine.

Alex has it all—brains, beauty, popularity, and a dangerously hot boyfriend. Her little sister Thea wants it all, and she's stepped up her game to get it. Even if it means spinning the truth to win the attention she deserves. Even if it means uncovering a shocking secret her older sister never wanted to share. Even if it means crying wolf.

Told in the alternating voices of Alex and Thea, Adele Griffin's mesmerizing new novel is the story of a sibling rivalry on speed.

I just discovered this about five minutes ago and I'm very intrigued.  It sounds dark and I like dark in my novels.  Teens could use a little dark that's real instead of the fantasy kind.  It's gotten mixed reviews, but I'm willing to give it a chance.  I'm hoping for something with some 13 Reasons Why (Jay Asher) flavor.  We'll see if it lives up to that or is a little too Gossip Girl.  


  1. I really want to read anything from Adele Griffin but her books are so hard to come by here. This sounds wonderful, though. Will definitely add this to my TBR. Great pick! :D

    I know! January's so far away! There are so many fantastic books that'll come out next year and I've been looking forward to The Madman's Daughter as well. Nice pick! :D

    Care to stop by my WoW? :)

    1. Oh, I remember coming across the Madman's Daughter the other day but I forget what it was about. I'll have to go check again because I think it was interesting...

  2. Oooh, this does sound really interesting! I've never heard of it before, but I think I'll have to check it out.
