Publisher Description

A New York Times Bestseller * A USA Today Bestseller * In this feminist, suspenseful thriller the daughter of a con artist is taken hostage in a bank heist—and will need to tap into all her skills in order to survive.

Soon to be a Netflix film starring Millie Bobbie Brown!


Nora O'Malley's been a lot of girls. As the daughter of a con-artist who targets criminal men, she grew up as her mother's protégé. But when her mom fell for the mark instead of conning him, Nora pulled the ultimate con: escape.

For five years Nora's been playing at normal. But she needs to dust off the skills she ditched because she has three problems:

#1: Her ex walked in on her with her girlfriend. Even though they're all friends, Wes didn't know about her and Iris.

#2: The morning after Wes finds them kissing, they all have to meet to deposit the fundraiser money they raised at the bank. It's a nightmare that goes from awkward to deadly, because:

#3: Right after they enter the bank, two guys start robbing it.

The bank robbers may be trouble, but Nora's something else entirely. They have no idea who they're really holding hostage . . .

My niece couldn’t put it down

My niece got this out from the library. In the two weeks that she had it, she read it at least four times. She is ten and a mature reader, who has been through a lot in a short life, particularly the past few weeks. I think that she enjoyed the escape from her own life and enjoyed getting to think about a bisexual lead character.

Thrilling. Psychological. Emotional.

I love books that start off in action. I like being thrown into the plot and watching the explanation slowly unfold as you read more. It really kept me on my toes the hole time! If you like the three words I used in the title, this book is definitely worth the read!!

AMAZING

This book will keep you on the edge of your seat for the whole ride. I finished it in two days. It’s so well written and the main character is absolutely amazing. I hate long reviews that give away the whole plot so just trust me and read this book especially before the movie comes out because im sure nothing can amount to the writing and character development that builds while physically reading.

The book goes back in forth between the present which takes place during a bank robbery and the main characters past. Little by little you find out more, she never gives too much away too soon. I really hope a sequel comes out because this was one of my favorite books.

If you like a wicked smart, perceptive, sarcastic main character you got it.
