I love books! I also write them. FYI: I use this space for recs of books I wholeheartedly love only. My recs are honest, but I have social relationships with some of the romance authors whose books I rec. 

Eyeing the Flash: The Making of a Carnival Con Artist - Peter   Fenton This book is MESMERIZING. If you like con artists, heist stories, or painful memoirs with unreliable narrators who seem determined to show themselves in the worst possible light (and I love all three), this book is for you. Teenager Peter Fenton escapes from his unpleasant home life through his unhealthy friendship with a fellow high school student who is also a bookie, fledgling con artist, and the son of carnival owners and has, to Pete's shock, an even more disturbing home life than Pete himself. I couldn't put it down.
