SCBWI's Blueboard - A Message & Chat Board

Blackmail Books

Discussion started on

I'm trying to research YA books that have an element of blackmail in them, or are about blackmail, but I'm not finding much out there. :gaah  I was hoping I could find some answers and book suggestions here from all you amazing Blueboarders.  :meeting  :ty

Trust Me, I'm Lying by Mary Elizabeth Summer has a grifter main character. It's lots of fun.

Thank you all so much!  I'll check each of those out. I knew Pretty Little Liars had some element of blackmail, but I wasn't sure how much. 

I've heard of the Cold Calls book, but wasn't sure what it was about, so I'll definitely check that out. Thank you!

Thanks again everyone!  :yourock

I think WHITE CAT by Holly Black -- a very intriguing first in a trilogy with magic-gangster plot, has blackmail as a plot (characters forced to commit crimes, etc.)
