If you love The Great Gatsby, you'll want to read the Flappers series.
Power . . . love . . . scandal . . . there’s never enough to go around.
In the city that never sleeps, Lorraine Dyer is wide awake. Ever since she exposed Clara Knowles for the tramp she was—and lost her closest confidante in the process—Lorraine has spent every second scheming to make her selfish, lovesick ex–best friend pay for what she did. No one crosses Lorraine. Not even Gloria.
True love conquers everything—or so Gloria Carmody crazily believed. She and Jerome Johnson can barely scrape together cash for their rent, let alone have a moment to whisper sweet nothings in the dark. And if they thought escaping Chicago meant they’d get away with murder . . . they were dead wrong.
Clara was sure that once handsome, charming Marcus Eastman discovered her shameful secret, he’d drop her like a bad habit. Instead, he swept her off her feet and whisked her away to New York. Being with Marcus is a breath of fresh air—and a chance for Clara to leave her wild flapper ways firmly in the past. Except the dazzling parties and bright lights won’t stop whispering her name. . . .
INGENUE is the second novel in the sexy, dangerous, and ridiculously romantic Flappers series set in the Roaring Twenties . . . where revenge is a dish best served cold.
This second book in Larkin's the Flappers series and follow-up to Vixen charts the lives of two teen girls whose friendship was torn apart by betrayals, misunderstandings, and jealousies as they navigate Roaring '20s New York in search of romance and revenge. This colorful tale of flappers, speakeasies, and gangsters translates well to audio, with Abby Craden providing compelling narration and embracing the breezy spirit of the novel. She gamely tries to provide the book's characters with distinctive voices (her rendering of various speakeasy employees and gangsters are especially fun and feature nasally, whiny, or gravelly tones), but with so large a cast, some of the voices she creates sound a bit similar and listeners may find it difficult to keep track of everyone. Still, this fun-filled narrative with its star-crossed romances, betrayals, danger, and fabulous clothes is a treat to listen to. A Delacorte Books for Young Readers hardcover.
