Pretending to Be Erica by Michelle Painchaud

Genre: YA Contemporary, Mystery, Thriller

Publisher: Viking Books

Release Date: July 21, 2015

Goodreads Synopsis:

We Were Liars meets Heist Society in a riveting debut!

Seventeen-year-old Violet’s entire life has revolved around one thing: becoming Erica Silverman, an heiress kidnapped at age five and never seen again.

Violet’s father, the best con man in Las Vegas, has a plan, chilling in its very specific precision. Violet shares a blood type with Erica; soon, thanks to surgery and blackmail, she has the same face, body, and DNA. She knows every detail of the Silvermans’ lives, as well as the PTSD she will have to fake around them. And then, when the time is right, she “reappears”—Erica Silverman, brought home by some kind of miracle.

But she is also Violet, and she has a job: Stay long enough to steal the Silverman Painting, an Old Master legendary in the Vegas crime world. Walking a razor’s edge, calculating every decision, not sure sometimes who she is or what she is doing it for, Violet is an unforgettable heroine, and Pretending to be Erica is a killer debut.


I am so intrigued by this book. Having to pretend to be an heiress, the conflict from a parent, lying and spying and acting. Figuring out who you are along the way. This sounds like a really good book, and I feel like I’m going to enjoy it. I’m hoping to get my hands on a copy soon.

What’s caught your eye?
