I’ve pledged to read more YA this year and I’m so glad I started with The Deceivers.
The intro had me well and truly hooked: Welcome to Vale Hall, the school for aspiring con artists. By the end of chapter one I was firmly Team Brynn. And willing her to run away and escape. With the exception of Fagin’s Gang in Oliver and Layer Cake, crime has never looked so appealing in literature. Brynn deserves more than her lot, and when everything she has conned so hard for is in turn stolen she feels her life is over.
Vale Hall offers Brynn a great start and a hopeful route to college. But at what cost? Everyone has their secrets and no one can afford to be kicked out of Vale Hall. Brynn eventually trusts some of her new friends to help.
A great story with twists and turns galore.
VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Thank you so much the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a complimentary electronic copy in return for an honest review.
