Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"Money is no object for sisters Alex and Thea Parrott after their divorced mother marries Arthur, 'the McDaddy of Sugar Daddies.' However, where they end up isn't where they want to be. The internship at a fashion magazine that Arthur finagles for high school senior Alex ends up being a disaster. When she returns home humiliated and too anxious to eat, socialize, or leave the house, Thea, a junior, thinks it may be her turn to steal the spotlight, as well as Alex's pot-dealing boyfriend, Joshua. Thea discovers too late that making up stories isn't the best way to win friends. Spanning one frantic, life-changing weekend as the sisters prepare to throw a party, Griffin's (Tighter) hard-edged novel offers an in-depth examination of two teens coming to painful terms with what they need, as well as what they've lost by having extreme wealth dumped in their laps. If the 'poor little rich girl' theme is somewhat well-worn, Griffin shows her customary skill at honing in on her protagonists' perceptions, internal conflicts, and uncomfortable relationships. Ages 14 — up. Agent: Charlotte Sheedy Literary Agency." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
