This book is about a sophomore who goes to an elite private school named St. Agatha’s. I know you’re probably thinking that this is a book about the everyday drama of an average high school student but you could not be further from the truth. Julep Dupree, the main character in this book, is a con artist and that is only the beginning. This book is about the quest she undergoes trying to solve the mystery of her missing father.
I thought that this book was fairly good. I enjoyed learning about Julep’s life and personality. I also liked the informal writing style. There were several plot twists in this book. If you think that you know what is going to happen, think again. On the other hand, one thing that I disliked in this book was the way the author resolved some of the main issues in this book. I believe that she made a few of the solutions to the problems a bit too simple.
One memorable thing about this book is the character of Tyler.
