True crime, desperation, fraud, and adventure: From the impoverished young woman who enchanted nineteenth-century British society as a faux Asian princess, to the sixteen-year-old boy who "stole" a subway train in 1993, to the lonely but clever Frank Abagnale of Catch Me if You Can fame, these ten vignettes offer riveting insight into mind-blowing masquerades. Graphic panels draw you into the exploits of these pretenders, and meticulously researched details keep you on the edge of your seat. Each scene is presented in the second person, a unique point of view that literally places you inside the faker's mind. With motivations that include survival, delusion, and plain, old-fashioned greed, the psychology of deception has never been so fascinating or so close at hand.

Interesting read with different types of stories. From a girl disguising herself to fight in the Civil War, to a man who uses grease paint to switch between ethnicities, there is something in this collection for everyone. Very well written, and attention grabbing. The second person narration can be distracting at first, but you get used to it.

Great, quick, little read. Very accessible style for kids and younger teens, without ever sounding like it’s “dumbed down.” I especially appreciated the “What happened next?” sections, where Barton briefly outlined what happened to the people after their grand adventure.
