Reviews

"It's Dynasty meets Patricia Highsmith. . . . Duplicity abounds when two messed-up clans collide, and Brown's final multiple twists are doozies."--The Washington Post

"Brown offers a glittering, high-stakes drama, stacking childhood nostalgia against the power to reinvent oneself in the age of social media. . . . Packed with plot twists."--Booklist (starred review)

"Fiendishly clever."--Kirkus Reviews

"A can't-look-away story of and for our generation, Pretty Things combines a spellbinding setting with dark, slippery secrets to expose what we've always known--or maybe just hoped--to be true about the gilded lives presented in our social media feeds. Janelle Brown is a literary powerhouse."--Chandler Baker, New York Times bestselling author of Whisper Network

"I devoured this book--an incredible read."--Jessica Knoll, New York Times bestselling author of Luckiest Girl Alive and The Favorite Sister

"I love a good con story--especially when I can't tell who's the actual mark and who's the real con artist. In Janelle Brown's compulsively readable Pretty Things, the good girls and the bad girls keep switching places in a story that will keep you turning pages till the end. Even more richly told than Watch Me Disappear, Brown's latest novel has the same sharp observations that are her trademark--about shifting identities and the secrets we all keep."--Attica Locke, author of Heaven, My Home

"Hungry, sexy, and packed with twists, this latest novel from Janelle Brown exposes what's hidden behind the stone walls of the elite's mansions and the slick facades of con artists' scams. Money, family, and Instagram collide to make a book you won't be able to put down."--Julia Phillips, author of Disappearing Earth

"Part psychological thriller and part morality tale, Janelle Brown's Pretty Things is literary suspense at its best. Gorgeous prose, complex characters inhabiting the fascinating worlds of elite Instagram influencers and high-stakes scam artists, a thought-provoking dual narrative, a twisty plot with a shocking, never-saw-that-coming ending--this brilliant novel has it all! I read it in one day in one sitting, mesmerized, and I loved every moment."--Angie Kim, bestselling author of Miracle Creek

"I drank down Janelle Brown's Pretty Things in one greedy gulp, speeding through the pages even as the sharp, insightful writing made me feel compassion for each narrator. . . . Mesmerizing, provocative, surprising and thoughtful--a must-read."--Jean Kwok, New York Times bestselling author of Searching for Sylvie Lee
