Review: The Girls I've Been by Tess Sharpe

This was decent, but not quite what I hoped it to be. Ever since I read Cristin Terrill's Here Lies Daniel Tate I've been craving another great conman story. And this one was just good. I honestly don't have too many thoughts about it. My main opinion is that I found the present timeline about the bank robbery to be very exciting, but felt like the pace was really bogged down by the flashbacks. Additionally, while the side characters (and even the main one) were interesting, they felt a little flat. I also wish that a lot of the reveals were more exciting-- a lot was hinted at and set up, but then culminated in something pretty basic or never explained at all. Overall, I had a fine time reading this, but I know it will quickly leave my memory. I'm super excited for the upcoming film adaptation though! Millie Bobby Brown and Jason Bateman involved? Sign me up.
