Publisher's Summary

We Were Liars meets Speak in this haunting, mesmerizing psychological thriller - a gender-flipped YA Great Gatsby - that will linger long after the final line

On wealthy Commodore Island, Fern is watching and waiting - for summer, for college, for her childhood best friend to decide he loves her. Then Ivy Avila lands on the island like a falling star. When Ivy shines on her, Fern feels seen. When they're together, Fern has purpose. She glimpses the secrets Ivy hides behind her fame, her fortune, the lavish parties she throws at her great glass house, and understands that Ivy hurts in ways Fern can't fathom. And soon, it's clear Ivy wants someone Fern can help her get. But as the two pull closer, Fern's cozy life on Commodore unravels: drought descends, fires burn, and a reckless night spins out of control. Everything Fern thought she understood - about her home, herself, the boy she loved, about Ivy Avila - twists and bends into something new. And Fern won't emerge the same person she was. 

An enthralling, mind-altering psychological thriller, Tell Me My Name is about the cost of being a girl in a world that takes so much, and the enormity of what is regained when we take it back.

"Set in a future that feels frighteningly plausible, Tell Me My Name is a lush, gorgeously crafted page-turner that will have you holding your breath until the final line." (Jennifer Mathieu, author of Moxie)

Tell Me My Name absolutely took my breath away.... I was left reeling from a totally unexpected conclusion that took this from an ordinary retelling of a classic into something much more, and made me immediately want to pick it up and start again from the beginning.” (Geek Mom) 

"While Reed takes inspiration from The Great Gatsby, this story is her own and will likely resonate with teens - especially young women - even more than the classic.... Immersive [and] smartly written.” (SLJ, starred review)

Felt better than Gatsby

The book was wonderful and I felt a stronger connection and more meaning from it than The Great Gatsby. The story felt like it started to drag at the end after the climax, but the resolution paid it off. Very well written and read.

Narrator Issue (for me)

This hardly ever happens to me, but the adenoidal tone of the narrator made the whole book a no-go for me. I'm sure this is a personal issue unique to me; but wow. I just couldn't get past her voice. Maybe the poor person had a cold. But then, don't let her record a book. My rating of the story and overall rating was based on the fact that I bought the ebook and read that. But since I prefer my books on audio, I couldn't make it through the ebook either.
