Ocean s Eleven so just bear with me hereJulep s not my real name, either, but we ll get back to that laterI personally think that is a wonderful line to start this all off, because if the synopsis didn t give away what the book was about, then that certainly will.Out of all the con artist type books I have read over my short years of obsessive reading, all of them have something to do with First name, Last name is not my real name, but don t worry about it And, like all good con artist books, we start right in the beginning of one, so you know, the readers get the feel of what they re doing, who they aren t, what the MC s job is.Now, welcome to Julep Dupree s life She is a grifter, only the second best because the 1 award for Best Grifter in Chicago goes to the Dad who happens to be missing.Dun dun dun.Now you have a game of cat and mouse He leaves clues and she has to find them and of course, they are all cryptic With the Dad figure gone, Julep has many problems A trashed apartment The need to find the Dad figure Keep up with school that A average isn t going to keep up all on its own Still play the fixer uper at said school MONEY Food too I guess Try not to die Try not to fall into some hot dude s choclatey warm eyes as well The last two may or may not be the same thing This isn t anything new, really Of course Julep would be trying to find her father, and of course she would have help Other than her trusty sidekick, or something , I wonder Hmm Sam, there isn t much help she can get.Of course that s where Local Prince Charming comes into play.I ll stop being sarcastic and unhelpful right now I meant what I said in my initial reaction upon finishing this book It would have been a breath of fresh air, sincerely, but there were some certain things just lacking.First things first the writing Keep in mind that this is a debut I ve read plenty of debut novels in my rather short period of time and sometimes it s very simple to distinguish one This novel, however, would not fall into that category Why That s easy The writing was actually very well done I enjoyed it for the most part Not all of it was vague none of This happened then that happened, causing this reaction Most of the times, the author went in depth, especially with her characters.But the thing with the writing It was also slightly problematic.I m sure everyone s familiar with the term,Show, not tellbecause some English teacher or another would tell you A lot of the times, this book was just the opposite The author would tell but lack the evidence to convincingly show And if that s not done in a correct manner, there s no way for the words to have any kind of effect It was one of the reasons I couldn t connect with this book and it did make most scenes rather boring and sort of insignificant to me whereas it was crucial in the plot.Now, for the main character Julep is well, she s getting there Personally, I couldn t always like her as a narrator, but she was well defined and well written She s smart mostly She knows what she s doing and she s confident She can get herself out of messes, whether she created them or not She s only a sopho and hot damn, does she know her way around, well, everywhere Not surprising, given her little jobs here and there, but this girl can get things done that s for sure And I love that about her, her self sufficiency Not to mention she s also sarcastic as fuck along with the other cliche heroine traits stubborn with a knack of getting herself in trouble Oh, and oblivious Cannot forget that one.She reminds me of Gwen from The Mythos Academy series, actually.The thing that bothered me most about her was that, despite keeping her history a secret, she basically spills it all when it comes to Tyler In fact, she doesn t even seem to not want to tell him She hesitates every once in a while, yeah, but for someone who kinda sorta breaks the law I wouldn t be giving up anything for any cute guy Especially one I ve barely known or spoken to, nonetheless Seriously, this is their first time talking and she s so chill with everything about him That s not okay Tyler, said cute guy, is seemingly one of the love interests in this book I couldn t really trust him entirely because it s downright strange why he wanted to so badly help Julep But I m glad he ended up being good for her.I really liked Sam I think he s my favourite character in this book because he s always got Julep s back and is always ready to help, even if it means him getting in severe trouble He s a sweetie and Julep is blind.The secondary characters got their deal of action, acting as they should, I guess They helped when Julep needed it but didn t really play huge roles in the book.Now, even though I d said the writing was good, it was also lacking in some areas.When something tragic happens in a book, you expect a paragraph or two to elaborate It didn t feel like that was happening here Sometimes Summer would just bluntly say it and it wouldn t feel real, and it would leave you confused I had to backtrack and reread a lot of the important details because, at first glance, they seemed insignificant.Also The romance wasn t the focal point at all Sure sometimes Julep would get distracted, and sure, it was inevitable, but Julep keeps her head in the game the entire time Her number one goal is to find the Dad and that s what she s always trying to do.However, I still found it a bit tough to stay interested in this book That s why it look me so long, other than the gloomy effect school has on me While it was interesting and fast paced, certain parts just lagged and didn t click There is a bit of romance so no need to worry about that.Overall, I was a bit underwhelmed 3 stars in my final vote After reading This is temporary I ll actually try for a review in a bit Honestly This would be a breath of fresh air in the whole teenage con thing because it was pretty crazy.Except the effect was ruined by the understatement of several happenings and I refuse to let that go.Sometimes the author just said what had happened so the initial what the fuck in a surprised manner does not occur, but rather what the fuck utter confusion replaces it.EditCorrection, I like this cover Ooooh I enjoy this cover I JUST LOVE THE TITLE. HAND IT OVERAND NOBODY GETS HURT HAND IT OVERAND NOBODY GETS HURT I m a pretty cynical dude in my late twenties, so I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy this book so much.I am reminded of being forced to watch Gil Girls in high school Not again I exclaimed while smiling inside Like Rory and later Veronica, Julep and her author won me over with their wit and charm Readers of all genders and ages will be hooked. All of it was just too unrealistic, that s saying something considering how far my mind can stretch when it comes to unrealistic events but, ugh There was so much potential here I just couldn t get into it The protagonist was also too distant I think I found myself not really caring about her insignificant woes when there was so much going on Meh 2.5stars. Me, I m lying was fun, adventurous, but with a thrillingly sinister storyline that I couldn t put down Reminiscent of Veronica Mars, it follows the story of Julep, a sassy voice in a sea of the

Her single father teaching her all he knows, until she comes home from school and finds her place ransacked and her father missing Suddenly her extracurricular activities pale in comparison Apart from best friend Sam, Julep has connections but no other friends, not allowing herself to take comfort in anyone else, until she meets Tyler.Tyler is wealthy, popular and after seeing a dead rat being placed in Julep s school locker, feels he needs to involve himself in her protection Julep is wary of his sudden interest, and with good reason Sam doesn t trust him and their once close friendship becomes strained with the introduction of Tyler as a possible love interest Their dangerous adventure was enthralling, a mystery that unravels as the reader turns each page I loved Julep s character and although she eludes a tough exterior, I felt incredibly sorry for her She doesn t want to follow in her father s footsteps, even though he is pushing her into a life of crime and one day dreams of attending Yale.The appeal of Trust Me, I m lying comes from being so far fetched, that it borders on being a fun thriller and not to be taken seriously It s entertaining, and will appeal to fans of young adult mystery Looking forward to continuing on with the series .Download Pdf ♞ Credimi, sto mentendo ♗ Julep Dupree dice un sacco di bugie e conosce bene l arte del raggiro Suo padre, anche lui

pleasantly, surprised that view spoiler Tyler was killed off And not because I loathed him and wanted him dead, butthat that is a gutsy move You killed off a love interest, albeit only one of them, but still It happens so rarely and I certainly wasn t expecting it to happen here hide spoiler Ooh, and the reason behind the plot view spoiler was very realistic, I thought Her dad goes missing because he got involved in a human trafficking ring, and then realized what was actually going on, and wanted out ASAP Of course, the runners of the ring couldn t have that, for he knew too much Hence, he goes missing, due to their interference And I loved that, at the end, the girls are getting an education and a better life Which is really the only way to end that, but still hide spoiler So I ll be sticking around for Book Two, but I kinda hope this is a duology It needs a sequel, but it feels like it could easily be only two books without leaving out important bits I found a typo in a hackneyed phraseHe lets go a breath I didn t realized he was holding Page 18 Oops, here s another oneNo you are not Page 110And yet anotherWe ll have to find a pair tweezers Page 174Also, why wouldn t you capitalize God It doesn t matter if you believe in Him or not, if you are using His name as a proper name, you have to capitalize it, for grammar s sake But obviously that s not very important to you, considering the missed comma, incorrect tense, and missing preposition I thought this story line sounded like a great set up, teenage con artist Julep Dupree, works with her father also a con artist so she can learn the ways of the privileged upper class and go on to con them in the future She s attending, St Agatha s, a private school, where she does favors for her fellow classmates for the right price But something is obviously wrong when Julep comes home to find her apartment ransacked and her father missing.I recently read Sway by Kat Spears, and the I thought this story line sounded like a great set up, teenage con artist Julep Dupree, works with her father also a con artist so she can learn the ways of the privileged upper class and go on to con them in the future She s attending, St Agatha s, a private school, where she does favors for her fellow classmates for the right price But something is obviously wrong when Julep comes home to find her apartment ransacked and her father missing.I recently read Sway by Kat Spears, and the protagonist in her novel has a similar relationship with the student body in his high school I really enjoyed that book and thought it would be fun to read a story with a female protagonist running some similar plays.Unfortunately there wasn t a lot of attention to detail, consistency in character or believability in Trust Me, I m Lying The main character is constantly telling the reader she s a grifter but the only time she shows us her scamming skills is when she tricks a stranger out of a cup of coffee and when she plays up to the server at the local caf and gets a triple soy macchiato without paying She does have a side job that generates funds and is dishonest but she s not using any face to face conning skills while at work on that project.She uses the word grifter and grifting over and over to describe herself and what she does But also offers some interesting advice harping on the same idea diminishes its strength and I have to agree with her I only wish the author had noticed this herself and let up on the hammering of the word grifter and instead showed the reader in action and deed the clever capabilities of the manipulative Julep Because what I saw her do was mostly talk about being a grifter I would have much preferred her to put her money where her mouth was.There are just too many unbelievable interactions within this story for it to be enjoyable for me I like my fiction realistic and there were too many unlikely exchanges in this novel to satisfy my critical eye If you re good with suspending your disbelief and you don t mind a lack of authenticity in your fiction you might be happy with this story One of the things that was just silly in this vein was that Julep was able to walk right into two high level government offices without any interference whatsoever and find the exact desk she wanted within seconds Another example of inconsistency is this tough grifter telling her friend she s miffed at him for sharing some information Miffed I don t think miffed is in the lexicon of the tough, edgy grifter And I don t think paper cut wienie is either, which is how she describes herself to this same friend a little while later She doesn t come across as tough because she doesn t talk tough or act tough, she only tells us that she is tough Another issue I found hard to believe is how she fits into the social hierarchy at the private school There aren t any details offered up to make her acceptance there logical or likely.I was expecting a clever and edgy novel with a capable female protagonist but when all is said and done this feltlike a typical teen relationship book with a love triangle and a heavy issue thrown in for interest If you don t pay attention to the details and you don t care if your fiction is believable you could probably read this and enjoy the ride I did like the protagonist and her two sidekicks and thought the ending was clever
