From the impoverished young woman who enchanted 19th century British society as a faux Asian princess, to the 16-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 10 vignettes offer riveting insights into mind-blowing masquerades. Graphic panels draw readers into the exploits of these pretenders and meticulously researched details keep them on the edge of their seats.

Interesting read with different types of stories. From a girl disguising herself to fight in the Civil War, to a man who uses grease paint to switch between ethnicities, there is something in this collection for everyone. Very well written, and attention grabbing. The second person narration can be distracting at first, but you get used to it.

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.
