Pretty Little Liars meets Ocean’s 11 in this intrigue-filled contemporary drama from acclaimed author Kristen Simmons.
Welcome to Vale Hall, the school for aspiring con artists.
When Brynn Hilder is recruited to Vale, it seems like the elite academy is her chance to start over, away from her mom’s loser boyfriend and her rundown neighborhood. But she soon learns that Vale chooses students not so much for their scholastic talent as for their extracurricular activities, such as her time spent conning rich North Shore kids out of their extravagant allowances.
At first, Brynn jumps at the chance to help the school in its mission to rid the city of corrupt officials–because what could be better than giving entitled jerks what they deserve? But that’s before she meets her mark–a senator’s son–and before she discovers the school’s headmaster has secrets he’ll stop at nothing to protect. As the lines between right and wrong blur, Brynn begins to realize she’s in way over head.
The Deceivers was such a addictive read. Another great book for the year. The storyline was fun and the characters I did enjoy.
Brynn works hard to try to survive. Even if it means conning people and trying to get out of town. Vale Hall notice her talents and offer her a chance of freedom from her old life. When the past comes back to haunt her, will she be truly free?
This book was very hard to put down. I was intrigued with the story and how each character interacts with each other. There are some secrets and twists within this book. If your in mood for a good boarding school story, then you won’t be disappointed.
You ready to go to Vale Hall?
