Publisher's Summary

Bradford and Harper get together as teenagers. They are both from upper middle-class homes. However, Bradford's parents had some hard times when he was laid off due to an accident. Bradford learned from his father how to beat the system and get what he wanted without working for it, and to have others feel sorry for him.
When he meets Harper, he tells her all this, and she, spending a lot of time at Bradford's family home, learns how to do the same. The young couple becomes engaged and decides that they want a big house but, of course, can't afford it on their minimum wage jobs, so they devise a plan of how to get it. The idea came to them when Harper got into an argument with her parents telling them that she owned their house as well as them because the address was on their driver's license. So they scoured the city and decided which house they would like to have. They discovered that a middle-aged couple and two young adult children lived there and went down to the license bureau and changed the address on their driver's license to that of the house they wanted. Then they packed up their belongings into a rented moving van, drove to the house, parked the moving van, went to the door, and forced their way in, saying it was their house.
The original homeowners, Nick and Nora, ended up moving out of the house, hiring an attorney and fighting the young couple to get their house back. It takes some time, so meanwhile, the young couple is destroying things and claiming squatter's rights.

Not your average horror story!

This book is TERRIFYING! It tells the story of an affluent family who becomes the victims of squatters, using the system against them. The under-aged squatters are a couple who notice people in their lives scamming their way through life and decide to learn about tenant rights. The male scammer uses charm and social engineering to gather all the data he needs to learn about his targets. They pose as 'renters' and provide false documentation when confronted by the owners claiming they responded to a craigslist ad and have paid a deposit to move in. When the police are called the false documents hold up to scrutiny and the officers, aware of tenants rights, cannot force the young couple out and the actual owners of the home have no choice but to let the 'tenants' stay while they vacate the home in hopes of a quick resolution that doesn't come fast enough.

What is so terrifying about this book is that it could actually happen. I've read news articles about prior tenants gone bad and this book details how it could actually happen to you in the home you're currently living in. This book can be used as a way to educate yourself so you can protect your home OR as a handbook on how to pull the same scam. BEWARE!

This book was thought-provoking. In this age of social media, in a matter of hours, a family's lives were turned upside down. It all seemed so realistically simple and completely possible!
