“A proper beachy thriller”
“This is going to be big.”
— Entertainment Weekly
All These Beautiful Strangers is the thrilling debut novel from Elizabeth Klehfoth, and we too believe it’s going to be big! So much so we’ve managed to get an exclusive extract of the book that’s not even out in the stores yet, for our customers’ eyes only!
Beyond the glittering heights of the rich and powerful, lie secrets that can destroy them all…
Charlie Calloway has a life most people would kill for - a tight-knit family, a loyal set of friends, and top grades at a privileged boarding school. But Charlie isn’t interested in what most people want. She’s a Calloway. She’s special. And she’s been taught to want more. So when she’s invited to join an-exclusive secret society, Charlie's determination to get in is matched only by her conviction that she belongs there.
But their secrets go deeper than she knows.
Charlie finds herself thrust into the centre of a decades-old mystery - one that implicates her family in not one terrible crime, but two. Uncovering their past may destroy everything she knows - or give her the answer she's always craved: who or what was behind her mother's disappearance ten years ago?

“With an incredibly complex young heroine at its centre, this is one of those rare books that will appeal to a large cross section of readers. It is an emotional and heart racing thriller that I believe will find a huge international audience. It is hard to believe that this is Elizabeth’s first novel and we are very excited at Made Up Stories for the incredible career she is going to have”
- Bruna Papendrea (Film Producer)
“The debut novel by Elizabeth Klehfoth has a plot akin to what you would get if you combined The Secret History with Cruel Intentions with Luckiest Girl Alive”
– Entertainment Weekly
“Juicy, clever and beguiling. An exceptional debut novel, deftly crafted and written with style. It is the perfect book to read at the beach. But be warned: you will get a sunburn, because you won’t want to put it down.”
— Cecily von Ziegesar, author of the Gossip Girl novels
