“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

“In Janelle Brown’s latest twisty, propulsive mystery, estranged twin sisters must confront shocking pieces of their past when one of them goes missing.

“Janelle Brown has done it again, creating a deliciously twisty page-turner you won’t be able to put down.

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

“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)

“A delicious work of intrigue and suspense . . .  You won’t want to stop reading until you find out what’s happened.”Kirkus Reviews
