Can I See your I.D.?

True Stories of False Identities
Barton, Chris (Book - 2011 )
Average Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
Can I See your I.D.?

Item Details

True crime, desperation, fraud, and adventure: From the impoverished young woman who enchanted nineteenth-century British society as a faux Asian princess, to the sixteen-year-old boy who "stole" a subway train in 1993, to the lonely but clever Frank Abagnale of Catch Me if You Can fame, these ten vignettes offer riveting insight into mind-blowing masquerades. Graphic panels draw you into the exploits of these pretenders, and meticulously researched details keep you on the edge of your seat. Each scene is presented in the second person, a unique point of view that literally places you inside the faker's mind. With motivations that include survival, delusion, and plain, old-fashioned greed, the psychology of deception has never been so fascinating or so close at hand. .

Great, quick, little read. Very accessible style for kids and younger teens, without ever sounding like it’s “dumbed down.” I especially appreciated the “What happened next?” sections, where Barton briefly outlined what happened to the people after their grand adventure.
