The Girls I've Been

Author(s): Tess Sharpe

Young Adult

As an ex con artist, Nora has always got herself out of tricky situations. But the ultimate test lies in wait when she's taken hostage in a bank heist. And this time, Nora doesn't have an escape plan.

Meet Nora. Also known as Rebecca, Samantha, Hayley, Katie and Ashley - the girls she's been. Nora didn't choose a life of deception - she was born into it. As the daughter of a con artist who targeted criminal men, Nora always had to play a part. But when her mother fell for one of the men instead of conning him, Nora pulled the ultimate con herself: escape.

For five years Nora's been playing at normal - but things are far from it when she finds herself held at gunpoint in the middle of a bank heist, along with Wes (her ex-boyfriend) and Iris (her secret new girlfriend and mutual friend of Wes ... awkward). Now it will take all of Nora's con artistry skills to get them out alive. Because the gunmen have no idea who she really is. And that girl has been in hiding for far too long ...

Matilda Bookshop Review

In this tense and stylish thriller we follow the unfolding of a bank heist gone horribly wrong. Held hostage along with her friend Wes and girlfriend Iris, Nora seems oddly calm, almost as though this is not an unusual situation for her. As the terrible day unfolds we learn more about Nora’s past as the daughter of a conwoman and how each of the cruel lessons her less than scrupulous Mother taught her are going to play a part in Nora’s ever evolving plan to get all of them out alive.

The Girl's I've Been is perfect for fans of One of Us Is Next and The Good Girls Guide to Murder. Just be prepared for everything to be bumped up a notch; the suspense, the brutality and ultimately the satisfaction! Emilie
