Waiting on Wednesday #20: Lies I Told by Michelle Zink

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating!

Carmel's WoW Pick:

by Michelle Zink
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
Expected Release Date: April 7th 2015
Goodreads Summary:
What if, after spending a lifetime deceiving everyone around you, you discovered the biggest lies were the ones you've told yourself?

Grace Fontaine has everything: beauty, money, confidence, and the perfect family.

But it’s all a lie.

Grace has been adopted into a family of thieves who con affluent people out of money, jewelry, art, and anything else of value. Grace has never had any difficulty pulling off a job, but when things start to go wrong on the Fontaines' biggest heist yet, Grace finds herself breaking more and more of the rules designed to keep her from getting caught...including the most important one of all: never fall for your mark.

Perfect for fans of Ally Carter, Cecily von Ziegesar, and Gail Carriger, this thrilling, high-stakes novel deftly explores the roles of identity and loyalty while offering a window into the world of the rich and fabulous.

Anything with lies and deception? YES!!! GIVE IT TO ME PLEASE! I'm such a sucker for a good con story and this definitely seems very interesting.  This reminds me of White Collar (one of my favorite shows!) Grace reminds me of the charismatic, confident, and infamous Neal Caffrey. I cannot wait to grab a copy of Lies I Told!!! EEEEP!!!

A scene from White Collar where Neal sneaks in a gun. He did it effortlessly!
