“Riveting and utterly engrossing. How Barnabas Miller manages to deftly maneuver between moments of deliciously snarky humor, poignant teen angst, family dysfunction, budding romance, and sly class commentary, while wrapping it all up in a dark, twisted, Hitchcock-worthy page-turner of a thriller about love and evil, I’ll never know. Clearly, he’s some kind of stealth writing demi-god bent on making us all miss our train stops. Mission accomplished, sir. ”
“A search for answers only leads to more questions in this suspenseful mind-bending thriller... [the truth is] far more twisted than Theo—or readers — could have predicted. Miller takes readers further and further down the rabbit hole, making it hard to guess if anything — or anyone — is ever as it seems.”
“Contains countless twists and turns that make it a dark, intense, mind-bending mystery ... Miller’s novel communicates a powerful truth: we all have secrets and feelings we would like to repress, no matter how much we try to hide them behind a façade. Some novels are unremarkable and easy to forget. The Girl With the Wrong Name, however, is a fast-paced psychological thriller that leaves a lasting imprint.”
“It might take a while to unbend your brain after you devour Barnabas Miller's gripping and mysterious The Girl With the Wrong Name, but mental crimping is just one of the many joys to find in this thrilling, insightful, and fully original tale.”
–C. Alexander London, bestselling author of Proxy
“I loved this book. Mind-blowing and intense—it will keep you guessing until the last page.”
–Kami Garcia, #1 New York Times bestselling coauthor of Beautiful Creatures and author of The Lovely Reckless
“A plot laid out like mountain switchbacks. A narrator who can't rely on her own memories. And a secret hidden under layers of guilt, blame, and shame. Miller's The Girl with the Wrong Name is even more than the sum of its parts, and its parts are damn fine. ”
–Barry Lyga, New York Times bestselling author of I Hunt Killers
“Such a rush. You won't know which way is up, whom to love, or whom to trust. Theo is my favorite type of heroine: witty, lonely, fierce, and terrifyingly intelligent. A brain-shattering rollercoaster ride of a novel. ”
