Thank you so much to NetGalley and Tor Teen for giving me the opportunity to read Scammed early! I loved the Deceivers so much, so I was super excited to dive back into the world of Vale Hall and my favorite con artists!
Scammed 5/5 Stars
Summary from Goodreads: Brynn Hilder is living a life she never dreamed possible: She lives in a mansion, getting a top-rate education at Vale Hall. She has friends and an almost-boyfriend. Anything she wants, she can have.
The only catch? To stay in this life, she has to help the director of Vale Hall take down the bad guys of Sikawa City by collecting secrets and running cons.
Getting everything she wants and fighting evil doesn’t seem like such a bad deal. The thing is, she’s not so convinced anymore that Dr. Odin is really going after bad people after all. And the friends and almost-boyfriend that have made her life so different are all liars and con artists—so can she trust that any of it is real?
The stakes are higher. The cons are riskier. And nothing is what you think it is.
I loved boarding school books so much and the Deceivers was SO GOOD so I definitely expected a lot from Scammed and I wasn’t disappointed by it at all. It was different in that the way that the problems came about and the way that they were solved were different, but we still had our favorite major players in there. Brynn was still her normal badass self. Caleb was adorable and smart as usual. Dr. Odin was mildly creepy, but his usual headmaster-y self and ugh Grayson was back (note, not a spoiler at all because it happens in like the 2nd or 3rd chapter). There were so many more twists and turns in book two and it makes me want the next book even more!
