They Wish They Were Us

Author: Jessica Goodman

Publisher: Razorbill

Year: 2020


At an elite private high school, The Players are a not-so-secret cabal of students who seem to have everything handed to them. Jill and her friends in The Players are ready for their senior year. They are the most popular, smartest and have the most fun. They’re ready to take the reins of The Players and have an epic senior year. But the death of Jill’s best friend three years earlier is still impacting the group. Jill gets a text about the boy who had confessed to the murder. He’s recanting his confession and claiming he’s innocent. Will Jill help him prove it? 

This was an okay and quick young adult thriller. There’s some twists and a few red herrings. Not all the characters are spoiled rich kids, but most of the characters are cliches with very little character development. I found myself skimming some pages because it didn’t always my attention. But I’m sure there are many teen readers who will find lots to like about this mystery and enjoy it.
