The Julian Game by Adele Griffin

The Julian Game by Adele Griffin

Recieved from Around the World Tours

New girl Raye Archer is desperate for a way into the In crowd, so when ice-queen Ella Parker chooses her to get back at her ex, the gorgeous Julian Kilgarry, Raye is more than game. Even if it means creating a fake Facebook identity as “Elizabeth” so that she can learn enough about Julian to sabotage him. While a fun and dangerous thrill at first, what Raye hadn’t counted on was falling for Julian herself—and igniting Ella’s rage.
As Raye works to reconcile the temptress Elizabeth with her real-life self, Ella serves up her own revenge. Now it’s Raye who falls victim, as Ella creates an online smear campaign of nasty rumors and trashy photographs. Suddenly notorious, Raye has to find a way out of the web of deceit that she’s helped to build, and back to the relationships that matter.

This was actually the first book I've read that dealt with the very real situation of fake cyber identities, and how people, and not just teenagers but everyone, uses them.The amazing thing about this book is how very straight to the point it was, which was great I needed a to-the-point book. Raye wants to be popular and liked while at the same time talk to a boy she'd never talk to in real life. When the reason Raye ends up talking to him is to be friends with his uber-popular ex...well things keep getting more and more complicated without Raye being able to a way out.

Along with the invention of the internet came the amazing idea of being someone you could never be in real life. To talk to people, and eventually be able to say things you'd never say in real life.

With that said, the cover of this book and the summary were amazing draws to reading this book. I was hooked right from the get-go, and while this book was good, kept me reading, and the story entirely relateable it was fairly average. I enjoyed it, and the main character could of been me in high school. But it wasn't a story that knocked me off my feet. At the same time I'd started reading Mockingjay, and, well, not much compares to a book you've been waiting forever to read. Sorry Adele Griffin!
