Bestseller Brown (Pretty Things) infuses this twist-packed mystery with an intense story of creating one’s identity, rife with deep family trauma and a low-key, creepy depiction of the dark side of twin intimacy…The perfectly paced emotional reveals of the twins’ shared history pull the reader toward fierce investment in Elli’s safety and the sisters’ reconnection. Brown has upped her game with this one.—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Janelle Brown is a terrific storyteller and stylist, and I’ll Be You is one of those books you’ll devour. It has a hot mess of a narrator—actually two hot messes, twins—both of whom you will root for, even as you are screaming at them to get a grip. Also? The novel has more twists and turns than the canyon roads that snake up and around Los Angeles. —Chris Bohjalian, New York Times bestselling author of The Flight Attendant and Hour of the Witch
Janelle Brown has done it again, creating a deliciously twisty page-turner you won’t be able to put down. But I’ll Be You is much more than a riveting thriller; it’s a powerful and moving portrait of the fiercely tenacious bonds of familial love. With her trademark beautiful writing, depth of emotion, and sharp insights, Brown explores the dangers that lurk behind the seductive worlds of Hollywood child stardom and self-help culture. I loved this novel. —Angie Kim, Edgar Award–winning author of Miracle Creek
Absolutely delicious…Janelle Brown is a surgeon of the complex relationships between women. I gobbled this up. —Emma Straub, New York Times bestselling author of All Adults Here
