WoW: Pretending to be Erica (Michelle Painchaud)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blogging event hosted by Breaking the Spine, in which one spotlights an upcoming release they are eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Pretending to Be Erica
Title: Pretending to be Erica
Author: Michelle Painchaud
Release Date: July 21, 2015
Publisher: Viking Juvenile
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.

Why I'm Looking Forward To ItI love a good con story, and becoming someone else to steal something is one of my favorites! And it takes place in Vegas, which always adds a fun and sinister flair. Really excited for this one!

So what book are you waiting on?


  1. I have been so excited for this one too! I love We Were Liars and Heist Society, so this one definitely can't go wrong for me!

  2. Cons, not really my thing. But I am curious ;)
    here's our WoW :)
