They Wish They Were Us Reviews and Comments:

This ebook perfectly blends high school drama with murder, creating a sinister back drop that can only spell disaster. It's clear from the obtain-go that nothing is as it seems in Jill's great tiny globe, and that the Users aren't as glamorous as they seem. I greatly enjoyed how the originator would tease darker tricks of Jill's life from the very beginning, successfully drawing the reader into the storyline. I found myself on the edge of my seat while reading this novel, waiting to see what twists may be around the corner. I found Jill to be a very compelling hero, and I enjoyed the different relationships she had with family and dudes, and her dynamic with her younger brother in particular really interested me. Overall, I found this novel to be a true thrill!

They Want They Were Us is a novel about a secret society at the high school lvl. It also is a statement about the system in which we live that is founded upon patriarchal ideals and boosting up the socio-economic status-quo. On that lvl, it is infuriating to read about the globe of elite personal schools and the students who go on to obtain Ivy League educations. The ebook reads like a Sara Sheppard novel and is a fun, interesting take on the category of wealthy teens at a prep school who are trying to determine the truth about their murdered dude while also trying to maintain their status in the high school hierarchy and discovering the truth about who is pulling the strings. The ending was a tiny predictable, but that didn't create it any less fun to read!
