    Description

    TV adaptation The Players' Table starring Sydney Sweeney and Halsey currently in development 

    Gossip Girl meets One of Us Is Lying with a dash of The Secret History in this slick, taut murder mystery set against the backdrop of an exclusive prep school on Long Island.

    In Gold Coast, Long Island, everything from the expensive downtown shops to the manicured beaches, to the pressed uniforms of Jill Newman and her friends, looks perfect. But as Jill found out three years ago, nothing is as it seems. 

    Freshman year Jill's best friend, the brilliant, dazzling Shaila Arnold, was killed by her boyfriend. After that dark night on the beach, Graham confessed, the case was closed, and Jill tried to move on. 

    Now, it's Jill's senior year, and she's determined to make it her best yet. After all, she's a senior and a Player - a member of Gold Coast Prep's exclusive, not-so-secret secret society. Senior Players have the best parties, highest grades and the admiration of the entire school. This is going to be Jill's year. She's sure of it. 

    But when Jill starts getting texts proclaiming Graham's innocence, her dreams of the perfect senior year start to crumble. If Graham didn't kill Shaila, who did? Jill vows to find out, but digging deeper could mean putting her friendships, and her future, in jeopardy.

    Commentaires

    "Goodman deftly explores the complex nature of friendship, privilege, grief, and the often crushing expectations placed on teens, all of which dovetails neatly with a twisty murder mystery...A sophisticated and suspenseful debut." (Kirkus Reviews

    "This debut murder mystery is filled with twists and turns that will keep its pages turning." (Booklist)

    “Seductive and slick, They Wish They Were Us is a searing novel about power, privilege, and the dangerous pursuit of perfection. You’ll remember the girls of Gold Coast Prep Long after the last page.” (Jessica Knoll, New York Times best-selling author of The Luckiest Girl Alive and The Favorite Sister)

    I really liked it! 🙂

    YA is much different these days. I work at a hospital and it's been quite a stressful Spring/Summer. This was able to make my commute and days better. Kept me interested.

    B plus

    A pleasant listen overall.
    The story is a bit worn out and the characters were not relatable to me. However there were some plotlines throughout that kept me intrested.
    The performance was solid.

    Not just for girls!

    As a male I was skeptical that “They Wish They Were Us” would pique my interest. Boy was I mistaken. This coherently crafted drama can appeal to anyone who attended high school, no matter your gender. Goodman displays her young talent as a writer by masterfully guiding the reader through an immersive world she artfully curates page by page. I read this book cover to cover in 2 days. Highly recommend.

    Great writing!

    I really enjoyed this book. Couldn’t wait to find out how it was going to end. Jessica Goodman is a great writer. Can’t wait to read her next book!

    A great read

    I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. She captures the mystique of Long Island prep schools and the pressures of High School. I couldn’t put it down as the mystery began to unravel. Looking forward to more books by Jessica Goodman.

    PREDICTABLE!!!

    It wasn't BAD, just completely and totally predictable - had the whole "who dun it" aspect figured within the first few chapters! Having said that, the characters, although stereotypical, were pretty well written, the dialogue was typical but believable, and the story was overall okay. If you want an easy read/listen where you dont have to think, this is for you! I've read/listened to some smartly written YA novels before, but this isn't one of them.

    Not good, but not bad

    The murder mystery at elite high school is a good premise, but the author didn’t deliver on both. I enjoyed the murder mystery, even if it was fairly formulaic. I really felt Jill’s loss and her struggle between moving on and I conversing the truth.

    But the secret society (aka The Players) felt more like a plot devise than a story. In the first half of the book, I think you could drop the secret society without changing much of the book. Even later in the book the secret society did little more than five the main characters reasons to act or feel bad, without adding to the plot.

    Overall, it’s not the best book, but it’s not the worst. It works as good background noise for anyone who enjoys YA murder mysteries, but don’t expect much else.

    Predictable

    I prefer to not be able to figure out “who did it” right away. Not much to it.

    Cheesy but still fun

    Super cheesy, and easy to predict the ending, but still fun. Pretty on par with YA genre
