In Her Skin by Kim Savage
Published by Farrar Straus and Giroux on March 27th 2018
Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary

Sixteen-year-old con artist Jo Chastain is about to take on the biggest heist of her life: impersonating a missing girl. Life on the streets of Boston these past few years hasn’t been easy, and Jo is hoping to cash in on a little safety, a little security. She finds her opportunity in the Lovecrafts, a wealthy family with ties to the unsolved disappearance of Vivienne Weir, who vanished when she was nine.

When Jo takes on Vivi's identity and stages the girl’s miraculous return, the Lovecrafts welcome her back with open arms. They give her everything she could want: love, money, and proximity to their intoxicating and unpredictable daughter, Temple. But nothing is as it seems in the Lovecraft household—and some secrets refuse to stay buried. As hidden crimes come to the surface, and lines of deception begin to blur, Jo must choose to either hold onto an illusion of safety, or escape the danger around her before it’s too late.

  1. Oh! I got this book for Macmillan but I admit, I’m not interested in it. In the package they sent, I’m only interested in two of the books (admittedly, one of them is one of my most anticipated novels of 2018, so it’s fine). 😀 I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a great week, Bee. =)
