Book Launch: Jessica Goodman presents They Wish They Were Us
In conversation with Emma Gray
Cosmopolitan op-ed editor Jessica Goodman takes the Greenlight stage (virtually!) to launch her debut YA novel, They Wish They Were Us. 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. Jill Newman's best friend, the enigmatic Shaila Arnold, was killed by her boyfriend three years ago. After that dark night on the beach, Graham confessed, the case was closed, and Jill and her friends tried to move on. Now, it's Jill's senior year and she's determined to make it her best yet. But when she starts getting texts proclaiming Graham's innocence, Jill's dreams of the perfect senior year start to crumble. More than anything, Jill wants to uncover the truth about what happened to Shaila, but she soon realizes that doing so means putting her friendships, and her future, in jeopardy. Greenlight is thrilled to welcome Jessica to launch her book – one of our most pre-ordered titles of all time – in conversation with Emma Gray, author of A Girl’s Guide to Joining the Resistance and Senior Reporter at Huffington Post.
