Genuine Fraud is the YA psychological thriller we've all been waiting for. It is dark, twisty and impossible to predict and you'll want to pick it back up again as soon as you finish. Jule West-William is a chameleon, a fighter and a fraud- or is she? You be the judge. This book is a rich and compelling character study of a morally ambiguous anti-heroine combined with a taut thriller.

Binx Bolling is as typical a fellow as can be: 1950s middle-class stock broker who never strays far from home, and is content with his banal lifestyle. However, he is as existentially self-aware as a Dostoevsky's Ivan or Raskolnikov, and struggles to remain connected to reality, despite the listlessness of life and the movie theater threatening to tear him away from himself.
