Awkward, 21-year-old Greta Donovan, the fiercely intelligent daughter of a philandering physics professor, doesn’t relate to people nearly as well as she relates to facts and figures. While Greta gets quarks and string theory, she hasn’t a clue where men are concerned.
Which is exactly why she doesn’t see it coming when someone tries to kill her.
Newly transplanted in L.A. after being kicked out of her father’s house, Greta moves in with her best friend Daphne Saito, a troubled girl with an abusive past. The charismatic Daphne teaches Greta how to wear stilettos, apply lip gloss, and navigate 1990s Hollywood nightlife. Daphne is determined to succeed, and she drags an unwilling Greta into the limelight with her.
When Greta walks out on her, Daphne tries to win her back. But Daphne’s desperate tactics just push Greta further away. Reeling, Daphne betrays her friend. Can Greta survive? Can she forgive?
WARNING! You will be sucked into this story from the very beginning, no matter how hard you try you won’t be able to put this book down. Super fast paced, with loads of intrigue, you will find yourself frantically turning the pages anxious to discover what happens next.
Daphne and Greta seem harmless at first, enigmatic, until layers are revealed and they become quite complex. Daphne takes a markable toll where Greta endears herself as the story progresses.
The narrative is full of intrigue, surprises truly keeping you in a constant state of suspended rollercoaster suspense.
The ending was great. My absolutely favorite bit – when just desserts was served in an intelligent and classy manner, so well done.
Exciting story, with challenging characters keeping you on your toes.
