Synopsis

Athena Liu is a literary darling.
June Hayward is literally nobody.

But when June just happens to witness Athena die in a freak accident, she realises now is her chance to find fame.

So what if that means stealing her friend’s work?
So what if that means creating a new, racially ambiguous identity?
So what if a social media scandal is about to blow her cover?

As her lies mount up and threaten her stolen success, how far will June go to keep what she thinks she deserves…

This is one hell of a story. It’s just not hers to tell.
