Being from Long Island, I like to read stories that take place there, and since this sounded like it was mashing up some TV shows I’ve enjoyed, I was eager to read They Wish They Were Us. I found this to be just an okay book, most of the story dragged for me. It was more than halfway into the story that I became a little invested in what was going on and what really happened.

Fun fact, the newspaper mentioned throughout the book, the Gold Coast Gazette, I used to design it each week at my last job.

I do know the town that Gold Coast is based off of and the private school that Gold Coast Prep was modeled after, I live about 30 minutes away from them and took this photo at one of the state parks in the area. I felt like the main plot of the story was supposed to be Shalia’s murder and what really happened, but I feel like most of it was sidetracked with the real plot being all the drama of the Players.
