15. What came as a surprise in this book? Why? Genuine Fraud was very suspenseful and surprising. The whole book came twist after twist. It was full of surprises. As everything started to unravel you would learn more and more surprising things. However what I found most surprising was how she lied almost the whole time. The whole background story was a lie almost everything you thought you learned about her throughout the story was false or twisted. I found this surprising because although I have read a stories where the narrating is unreliable before it is not very common. So when I pieced together in the end that a lot of the information were lies I was shocked and I realized how well it fit, especially since the title is “Genuine Fraud”…show more content…
Lockhart’s Genuine Fraud is told through the eyes of a deceiving girl named Jule West Williams who is born from a complicated and harsh past with her parents dying very early in her life.
