Julie Anne Lindsey's Deceived is the perfect find. Set in a boarding school in middle of nowhere Ohio, the thriller takes you on a journey of betrayal, mystery and self-discovery as Elle Smith's world unravels before our eyes.
In search of suspense this fall?
Elle's mother tragically died several years ago, and her
single father has been moving the two of them around non-stop ever since,
leaving Elle as the perpetual “new girl.” This time, she finds herself at a new
boarding school—just in time for senior year. Surrounded by new kids, teachers
and buildings, she hopes this move will remedy the persistent night terrors
that have been haunting her more and more.
Instead of the improvement she wished for, however, Elle
begins experiencing bizarre events at school (like cigarette butts left on her
doormat and ribbon placed on her locker), leading her to feel paranoid and
threatened. And things only progress as rumors start swirling of a serial
killer, convincing Elle that she is being contacted—and targeted—by the Reaper.
With any good read, there is some room for romance, too,
when Elle and her roommate Pixie meet mysterious fellow student Brian at a flea
market. Together, Elle and Brian form a close bond and discover that Elle's
father might not be exactly who he says he is, throwing them on one wild
journey to find the truth.
Will Elle be able to find her true identity and overcome the Reaper? Or will
this be the end? This fast-paced story offers an exquisite point of view from
Elle, leaving us feeling a super close connection with her as we simultaneously
experience the surprising and intense truths behind her as they are
