Reviews

Johnson gives and she takes away: a few majormysteries are satisfying solved, but other long-standing riddles remain tantalizingly indecipherable, and several new ones come into play by the enigmatic end. Readers, hang tight: there's one more round to come, and if the signs are right, it'll be to die for.--Booklist
An intricately plotted, compulsively readable novel that explores not only fascinating crimes but also the mysteries of anxiety, the creative process, contemporary fame, and so much else.--John Green
Jumping between past and present, Johnson's novel is deliciously atmospheric, with a sprawling cast of complex suspects/potential victims, surprising twists, and a dash of romance. Johnson remains a master at combining jittery tension with sharp, laugh-out-loud observations. (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

Stevie Bell is a dyed-in-the-wool true-crime buff. There is a lot to love here. Fans of puzzles, boarding school stories, and true crime will tear through this book and love every minute.--School Library Journal

Estella's complete naΓ―vetΓ© in the face of wealth and sophistication is convincingly drawn, and her fashionista ability is fun and engaging; the ending brings a twist that readers may not see coming... Rags to riches with a British twist.--Kirkus Reviews
A fresh take for a new generation of Disney lovers.--Booklist
Teens will want to read the backstory of one of Disney's most iconic villains. Johnson creates the swinging 1960s London of Estella's youth in vibrant color and cements the bond between Estella, Horace, and Jasper...Fans of Johnson's other books will flock to this classic tale of choosing between friends.--School Library Journal
