Exclusive Sneak Peak of Lisi Harrison’s PRETENDERS

Time Magazine once described Lisi Harrison's writing as, "Like Sartre with lip gloss." (Which is pretty much one of the coolest compliments ever.) Harrison, as many of y'all know, is the author of The Clique series, and she's back with a new series, Pretenders!

Here's the official blurb:

It’s the first day at Noble High, and the freshmen are assigned to keep a journal throughout the year.  No one will read these journals.  It is a private place for them to record their feelings.   But big secrets are revealed when the journal entries of the five most popular students, also known as the Phoenix Five, are exposed by an unknown source:

I’m not exposing them because I’m jealous or want revenge.  I am doing this because I am tired and I know you are too.  The success bar is too high, and pretending has become the only way to reach it.  Instagrams are filtered, Facebook profiles are embellished, photos are shopped, reality TV is scripted, burgers are stuffed with pink goo, body parts get upgraded like software, and even professional athletes are cheating.  The things we believe in aren’t real. Everyone is a pretender.
The proof is in these pages.

What secrets could Sheridan, Lily, Vanessa, Duffy, and Jagger be hiding within the pages of their journal?  With Lisi Harrison’s trademark wit and pitch perfect dialogue,  Pretenders transports readers to the highly sensitive microcosm of high school.

And you can dive straight into those journals right now with our exclusive reveal of the first few chapters! Because you weren't planning on doing any real work on a Friday, were you?


Pretenders will be released on October 1st!
