In Zara Lisbon's debut YA thriller, Fake Plastic Girl, a lonely teenager meets the glamorous It-girl next door—and winds up arrested for her murder.

Celebrity-studded parties that last long into the night. Camera flashes and designer clothes. And a body found floating in the Venice Beach canals.

But let’s start at the beginning.

Justine Childs is your average teenage girl, until the day ex-child-star Eva Kate Kelly moves in across the way. Eva Kate is gorgeous, seductive, and eager to invite Justine into her glittery world. Their relationship intensifies quickly, but there is a lot they aren't telling each other, and in the midst of the whirlwind, a girl lies dead.

Who killed Eva Kate? Justine swears her innocence—and she’d like you to hear her side of the story.
