But when a stranger poses as Elise, the painfully shy, deaf nineteen-year-old starts to see how much she’s missing. Can she really hide in the shadows forever? This clever, coming-of-age debut is for anyone who has ever felt unsure in her own skin.

She is shocked when her coping mechanism turns into a career as a phenomenal bestselling novelist. Fans are obsessed with Elise’s Viking Moon series and its author—a striking girl with zero resemblance to Elise who appears on the back covers. Elise sent the randomly Googled photo to her editor following a minor panic attack. Now, horrified to learn she is expected on set of the television pilot based on her novels, Elise tracks down her anonymous stand-in. To Elise’s surprise, Veronica Wilde has been taking credit for Viking Moon for years. She eagerly agrees to keep up the charade if Elise will pose as her assistant. It’s hard for Elise to watch a stranger take credit for her work and get all the perks she desires, including admiration from the show’s heartthrob star.

Is she ready to come to terms with her true identity—and with the long-buried secrets that could cost her her career, her fans, and the few precious friendships she’s made?

Fabulous audiobook!

I adored this audiobook! The combination of the Elise's vibrant, unique voice; Ms. Joyce's lively and original writing style; and engaging characters who jump immediately to life all make this a solid five-star must read! I joined Team Elise immediately and so enjoyed following her through every aspect of this multi-layered story. I was in turns laughing, crying, tense with suspense, and delighted. Elise is very relatable, yet admirable in her courage. Katie Schorr as narrator was perfectly cast; her voice was a pleasure to listen to, and she sounded just as I imagined Elise would. I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading more from Ms. Joyce!

The Futility of Hiding from Yourself

This a good book for anyone who has not yet burned out on the lie-as-tension plot line. It’s funny and light with just a spot of introspection. The message of this book, to be comfortable in one’s own skin, is one I can get behind. It’s the path Elise takes with which I take issue.

Author Bio: Samantha Joyce

Author Bio: Samantha Joyce

Samantha Joyce has wanted to be an author since she picked up her first book and realized authors get to create new worlds with just a pen and paper (or laptop, if you will). She loves to write about romance because, as someone who married her high school sweetheart, she absolutely believes in true love. She also loves making people laugh and feels love and laughter go hand in hand. If she can make someone both swoon and giggle with her words, she considers that a success. When not writing or at her day job, Samantha can be found either singing and dancing on stage in local musicals, or at home watching geeky television shows with her husband and their pet rabbit.
