Publisher Comments:

I had a life anyone would kill for.

Then someone did.

The worst part of being dead is that theresnothing left to live for. No more kisses. Nomore secrets. No more gossip. Its enoughto kill a girl all over again. But Im about toget something no one else does—an encoreperformance, thanks to Emma, the long-losttwin sister I never even got to meet.

Now Emmas desperate to know whathappened to me. And the only way to figureit out is to be me—to slip into my old lifeand piece it all together. But can she laughat inside jokes with my best friends? Convincemy boyfriend shes the girl he fell inlove with? Pretend to be a happy, carefreedaughter when she hugs my parents goodnight? And can she keep up the charade,even after she realizes my murderer iswatching her every move?

From Sara Shepard, the #1 New York Timesbestselling author of the Pretty Little Liars books,comes a riveting new series about secrets, lies, andkiller consequences.

Let the lying game begin.

Review:

"Those who get past the improbable premise of Shepard's (the Pretty Little Liars books) series debut will find a fun and fast-moving mystery. Foster kid Emma never knew she had an identical twin until she sees an online video of a girl named Sutton being choked by a masked figure. She tries to contact her, but a planned reunion goes awry when Sutton never shows up (readers know this is because she has been killed; Sutton narrates the book as a ghost, unable to communicate with Emma, but eager to 'solve my own murder'). Kicked out of her foster home and mistaken for Sutton by Sutton's friends and family, Emma starts living her privileged life; the stakes rise dramatically when she learns her other half is dead. Clique lit fans will recognize the familiar mix of label-dropping and mean girl behavior, but the dark mystery adds a compelling layer. Readers may have a hard time buying the ease with which Emma slips into Sutton's very different life, but they will race through the pages as Emma pieces together clues and will have plenty to ponder as they anticipate the next installment. Ages 14 — up. (Dec.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
