Everybody Rise (2015)

 

Evelyn works for a new social networking site called People Like Us. She has been brought up by a social-climbing mother and her father, a successful class-action lawyer, has been able to give them a comfortable lifestyle. As Evelyn tries to ingratiate herself into New York's young elite to sign up members, she spends way beyond her means and pretends she comes from a more privileged background. When her father comes under investigation in a bribery scandal and the debt collectors come calling, can she keep it all from crashing down around her? This cautionary tale is set in 2006, so readers will know that the global financial crisis is on the horizon. Evelyn is a frustrating character, increasingly sticking her head in the sand as her life goes off track while trying so hard to fit into an old-money world even though the people in it are so awful. This story got off to a slow start but I'm glad I persevered as the plot definitely picked up in the second half.
