Julep Dupree (Trust Me, I’m Lying, by Mary Elizabeth Summer)Read about another entry on the list.
Part-time school “fixer,” full-time badass, Julep’s a con woman with only one problem: she loves her family and friends too much. So when her con-artist dad disappears, Julep has to decide who she wants to involve in the rescue plot. Her dedication to keeping people safe is admirable, but it’s her confidence and determination that fill the Veronica Mars–shaped hole in our hearts and makes us want buy her a cup of coffee. (Or maybe she just conned us into paying for that.)
