Pretend I'm Dead by Jen Beagin

Staff Pick

Beagin may try to scare you off in the first few pages with her protagonist's engagement to a drug dealing pimp she charmingly calls "Mr. Disgusting," but I urge you to read on. Mona proves to be quite silly; she's a maid and does as thorough a job cleaning her clients' toilets as she does snooping in her employer's daughter's diary. Beagin's wonderfully crafted debut will have you laughing out loud--and her talented flame continues to burn with her second novel, Vacuum in the Dark, and her most recent bestseller, Big Swiss.
