Overview

True crime, desperation, fraud, and adventure: From the impoverished young woman who enchanted nineteenth-century British society as a faux Asian princess, to the sixteen-year-old boy who "stole" a subway train in 1993, to the lonely but clever Frank Abagnale of Catch Me if You Can fame, these ten vignettes offer riveting insight into mind-blowing masquerades. Graphic panels draw you into the exploits of these pretenders, and meticulously researched details keep you on the edge of your seat. Each scene is presented in the second person, a unique point of view that literally places you inside the faker's mind. With motivations that include survival, delusion, and plain, old-fashioned greed, the psychology of deception has never been so fascinating or so close at hand.

I thought this book was okay... you would think it would be good if you read what it's about, but the thing that bothered me was that it it written in 2nd person. If you don't know what that means, it is when the author says "you" instead of "he/she" or "I". Another thing: this book isn't all one story. There are many stories on different teenagers who use a fake identity. However, some of them were good, some of them not-so-good. If you think you still might enjoy it, go ahead and buy it. I'm just warning everyone that it is written in 2nd person, and not all of the stories are good. It wasn't a page-turner for me.
