“[A] page-turner that’s hilarious in its dedication to vamping on viral news stories about real-life strivers and cons from Delvey to Instagram personality Caroline Calloway … a delicious read.”—TIME magazine

After a rough year at NYU, aspiring writer Lora Ricci is thrilled to land a summer internship at ELLE magazine where she meets Cat Wolff, contributing editor and enigmatic daughter of a clean-energy mogul. Cat takes Lora under her wing, soliciting her help with side projects and encouraging her writing.

As a friendship emerges between the two women, Lora opens up to Cat about her desperate struggles and lost scholarship. Cat’s solution: Drop out of NYU and become her ghostwriter. Lora agrees and, when the internship ends, she moves into Cat’s suite at the opulent Plaza Hotel. Writing during the day and accompanying Cat to extravagant parties at night, Lora’s life quickly shifts from looming nightmare to dream-come-true. But as Lora is drawn into Cat’s glamorous lifestyle, Cat’s perfect exterior cracks, exposing an illicit, shady world.

A whip-smart and delightfully inventive writer, Susan Rigetti brilliantly pieces together a perceptive, humorous caper full of sharp observations about scam culture. Composed of diary entries, emails, FBI correspondence, and more, Cover Story is a fresh, fun, and wholly original novel that takes listeners deep into the codependency and deceit found in a relationship built on power imbalance and lies.

That ending!!!

Jaw is on the floor.  Whew this was a fun ride. The mixed formatting (texts, instagram posts, emails...) made it a bit challenging at first to follow on audio, but I'm glad I kept listening because the narrator held my attention the entire time and she did a fantastic job especially with the different voices and accents. Highly recommended especially if you enjoy stories about conwomen and their schemes.

Young adult book

I hope to be able to exchange this book. The story was aimed for and written in a young adult style.

If you do the audio version the different accents used are almost offensive. Very cliche.
