Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—Gabriella Smith has spent most of her life moving around and has finally landed in an Ohio boarding school to finish her senior year while her dad travels for business. She lives on caffeine pills and exercise to avoid the dreaded night terrors that come with sleep. She spends most of her days in a paranoid state as unexplained events occur: cigarette butts outside her door, a ribbon from her murdered mother's past in her locker, and rumors of a serial killer on campus. Whenever she feels panicky, Brian Austin, who proves to be the most intriguing character in this mystery, shows up to help her. As the story unfolds to an unpredictable and compelling ending, there are many changes in Elle's world. While the premise of the book is interesting, the plot is confusing as it jumps around, and it is often hard to tell who is speaking. The first half of the book sets readers up for the ending, but there's too much to wade through, and many teens might not hang in to find out why Elle's life is not what is seems.—Karen Alexander, Lake Fenton High School, Linden, MI

Review

"Lindsey's...layered depiction of events...creates a suspenseful and haunting atmosphere of uncertainty and the possibility of lurking madness.... A dramatic finale draws together the plot's disparate elements." --Publishers Weekly

"Ms. Lindsey crafts an exquisite tale that kicked my adrenaline up with every turn of the page. Deceived is stunning and more than a little scary. From the first page, I had to know what happens next, while at the same time, I had to know what happened before. As Elle's life unravels, the reader will feel just as raw and betrayed as she does." --Gwen Hayes, author of Falling Under

"Outstanding! I fully recommend it... Mysterious, lovely, a lot of suspense, romantic, funny and full of action... I really liked to give a chance to this book, because it was worth it." --Fandom's City

"As the story unfolds to an unpredictable and compelling ending, there are many changes in Elle's world.... The premise of the book is interesting." - School Library Journal

I'm a fan of Lindsey's romance and couldn't wait to see what she did with this new genre -- amazed! She crafted vivid characters and a narrative I truly couldn't walk away from (I zipped through the novel in about 3 days). Lindsey's sweet romance fans will also appreciate the touch of a love story that softens the edges of this gripping suspense. And her devoted blog and social media followers will enjoy the whimsical language that adds personality to this book and brings the story to life. This book beautifully showcases the best of Lindsey's character as an author, as well as (of course) her writing and storytelling skills.

If you liked the movie THE BODYGUARD, you'd probably enjoy this book. I certainly read faster during the second half of the book, because I needed to know exactly what was going to happen. A fun read for sure.

Deceived by Julie Anne Lindsey was a nice break from all the New Adult novels I've been reading- I am a little obsessed with the New Adult genre :). Once I started reading Deceived I realized how much I missed the Young Adult Genre. Deceived is a refreshing read from the Young Adult books I've read in the past. I loved the mystery, suspense, lies, twists, and the relationship between Elle and Brian.

I loved Elle's character :D! Elle is seventeen years old and has lived a very lonely life. Her father has always been moving them around from place to place, and hiring a nanny to take care of her while he is out of state working. Elle has never been open with anyone when it comes to what she is feeling and experiencing with her recurring nightmare. When her father enrolls her at Francine Frances, she believes that her nightmare will become less frequent and she can have a normal life. But her nightmares become more frequent, her sleeplessness worsens, and her paranoia increases. I felt every single emotion Elle's character goes through in Deceived, and I felt like I was right next to her experiencing all of the situations she encounters in the story.

Brian, Brian, Brian! I didn't know what to think of this guy. There is a lot of mystery surrounding Brain's character, that I seriously thought the worse things about him. From the beginning of the story, Elle describes him as being the nicest guy she has ever met and she felt an instant attraction towards him. But once he appears at her school on the first day of class, he is a complete different person. My instant thoughts about his character were jerk, mysterious, who is this guy, and does Elle even like him? Trust me when I tell you that Brian is a very mysterious guy, because we don't know anything about him.

1.5/5 Stars

First off, I would like to say thank you to Netgalley, and Merit Press of F+W/Adams Media for giving me my electronic copy of Deceived.

When reading any ARC I ignore all typing errors and grammar problems, but even pushing those aspects of the book aside, I thought this book was discombobulated. There were so many details and characters, in my opinion, that didn't work. Towards the end of the book, I felt that it was starting to finally pick up but by then, for me, it was too late.

Format: Hardcover
New girl at boarding high school runs, drinks a lot of coffee and takes caffeine pills to stay awake so she doesn't have recurring bad dream. Odd things and weird coincidences happen and make her feel like someone is watching her. She finds out that there's a rumor that there is a serial killer on the loose in the area...

Didja Like It?: A resounding no. This book felt like five different people were told what to write about, then they each wrote a section then shuffled the pages together like playing cards. The overlying theme to this book was security or the lack thereof. Supposedly, the father in the story is super overprotective of his only child, Elle, ever since his wife was killed in a car accident. However, he's gone a lot, and now he's sent his daughter to a boarding school where she knows no one. The dorms sound like they are a de facto apartment complex where these underage students live on their own without any adult supervision. It's an open campus where anyone can come onto the grounds, too. Sounds like the exact place where a dad like this would send his kid.

Then there's Brian. Elle and her roommate, Pixie, meet him at a flea market several towns over. An affable guy, he buys them coffee and seems to take an interest in Elle. Then, strangely, he shows up as a new student at this school (apparently, there are not many boys at this school, something that is mentioned but not explained). He doesn't even speak to Elle, even though they basically spent a day together. This goes on for quite some time, with him speaking to her some days and ignoring her others. How annoying. We're supposed to feel that there's something going on that hasn't been explained yet, but it feels manipulative. "Why is he acting so weird? Is he bad news?
