The dysfunctional, unreliable heroines of Girl on a Train and The Woman in the Window have a new sister-in-arms: Eliza Fontaine, protagonist of this adult novel by the author of the YA juggernaut Pretty Little Liars.”

“A book you won’t be able to leave sitting on the nightstand for long.”
—Harper’s BAZAAR

When debut novelist Eliza Fontaine is found at the bottom of a hotel pool, her family at first assumes that it’s just another failed suicide attempt. But Eliza swears she was pushed, and her rescuer is the only witness.

Desperate to find out who attacked her, Eliza takes it upon herself to investigate. But as the publication date for her novel draws closer, Eliza finds more questions than answers. Like why are her editor, agent, and family mixing up events from her novel with events from her life? Her novel is completely fictional, isn’t it?

The deeper Eliza goes into her investigation while struggling with memory loss, the closer her life starts to resemble her novel until the line between reality and fiction starts to blur and she can no longer tell where her protagonist’s life ends and hers begins.

A story blending Hitchcock, S.J. Watson, and Ruth Ware.”
—Entertainment Weekly

“Buckle up Pretty Little Liars fans, because author Sara Shepard is here with her first adult novel, and it is sizzling.”

“An eerie tale of manipulation, inception, and betrayal that will leave readers questioning their own memories—and reality.”
—Jamie Blynn, Us Weekly

“This is spring-break reading at its finest.”
—Town & Country

“Highly recommended for fans of eventually justified ‘paranoid woman’ characters who descend in a direct line from Charlotte Brontë to Ruth Ware.”
—Booklist (starred review)

After waking up in the hospital and finding out her family believes she attempted suicide, Eliza isn’t sure what is really going on. She has gaps in her memory and nothing seems to make sense to her. Despite what her family thinks, Eliza knows that something isn’t right, so she takes it upon herself to investigate her “incident” and get to the truth.
As a writer, Eliza is used to creating fiction, but it isn’t long before it appears that Eliza’s imagination has gotten the best of her and reality starts to blend in with her book. And then everything comes into question.

Eliza is very much an unreliable narrator in this story. The point of view shifts from Eliza in one chapter, to her novel The Dots in the next chapter. I was constantly trying to figure out what was true and what wasn’t. Is Eliza crazy? Is her novel pure fiction or something more? I’ve been a fan of Sara Shepard ever since I read Pretty Little Liars several years ago. She knows how to weave a good story and fill it with lies, suspense, and unique characters.

If you like a story that keeps you guessing and has some twists and turns along the way, then take a look at The Elizas.

RATING:3½ out of 5.
