Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Impostor is fast-paced and insightful, with a narrative voice that's snarky, funny, and utterly vulnerable. It spends less time than Slide on the nasty, vicious culture that infests Vee's high school (and ultimately results in a notable body count and assorted tawdry revelations by story's end).

Much of the narrative is Vee's internal monologue as she tries to make sense of inexplicable events from a state of near-Hitchcockian tension and paranoia, not to mention an emotional roller-coaster of romantic and family issues. As such, it may be a bit claustrophobically fraught for some readers. But Vee is worth knowing and is an appealing narrator as she takes us on her journey.
