In Her Skin by Kim Savage - OPTIONAL

In Her Skin by Kim Savage, 289 pages. Farrar Straus Giroux Books (Macmillan Publishing Group), 2018. $17.99

Language: PG-13 (19 swears, 0 “f”); Mature Content: PG-13; Violence: PG-13



From a rough, poor life on the streets to a relaxed, rich life with a new family—that’s the payoff for Jo’s next con. She’s pleased when everything seems to be going perfectly, but soon Jo has to wonder if she is the one behind the con or the one being conned.

At first, the story was intriguing and exciting, but I lost enthusiasm as I kept reading. I didn’t enjoy or understand the direction that the story was going in, and, by the end, I had a lot of questions that were never answered. The mature content rating is for drug use, criminal actions, and implied sex, sexual abuse, and prostitution, and the violence rating is for murder.
