Genuine Fraud

Here's the Genuine Fraud book trailer.  The book is in development with Jenni Konner and Lena Dunham for film, through their company A Casual Romance, in collaboration with Lionsgate Pictures.

Genuine Fraud is in stores, now.  Order it here. The We Were Liars deluxe edition is also out --  and it  has all kinds of goodies in the back, including new love letters.

Edited to say:

The main tour for Genuine Fraud is over, but I'll be at the North Texas Teen Book Festival and at Teen Book Con in Houston this Spring.   Come say Hi!

Also, I write a young middle-grade series called Upside-Down Magic, using the name Emily Jenkins. It's co-written with Lauren Myracle and Sarah Mlynowski.  Book 4: Dragon Overnight comes out Jan 30, 2018.  Tour dates below.  Bring the kids! 






There are cool symbolic tire-swing images on the all-text  We Were Liars merchandise from Litographs.

        Imogen is a runaway heiress, an orphan, a cook, and a cheat.

        Jule is a fighter, a social chameleon, and an athlete.

        An intense friendship. A disappearance. A murder, or maybe two.

        A bad romance, or maybe three.

        Blunt objects, disguises, blood, and chocolate.

        The American dream, superheroes, spies, and villains.

        A girl who refuses to give people what they want from her.

        A girl who refuses to be the person she once was.

"It’s a captivating, suspenseful story made all the more bewitching by Lockhart’s twisty narrative, and she constantly keeps readers guessing with unpredictable turns and eye-opening reveals. This quietly unsettling, cinematic novel is deliciously suspenseful, and while it’s slim, it packs a real punch." -- Booklist, starred review



And, I'm thrilled to announce the WE WERE LIARS DELUXE EDITION will be in stores May 23, 2017 in the USA.

It includes all-new love letters from Gat to Cadence, recipes, book club discussion questions, selections from the original book proposal, an essay by the author, teacher goodies, a nowhere-else seen sneak-peek at Genuine Fraud, and more.  All copies of the first printing are autographed and twenty special copies will be released signed with colored ink and rubber stamps.  Pre-order here.
