andlt;iandgt;So my only protection is a kindergarten teacher and a ninety-eight-pound female minister....And they don't even believe I'm in danger.andlt;/iandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; As Bethany approaches her thirteenth birthday, her parents act more oddly than usual. Her mother cries constantly, and her father barely lets Bethany out of his sight. Then one morning he hustles the entire family into the car, drives across several state lines — and leaves Bethany with an aunt she never knew existed. Bethany has no idea what's going on. She's worried her mom and dad are running from some kind of trouble, but she can't find out because they won't tell her where they are going. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Bethany's only clue is a few words she overheard her father tell her aunt: "She doesn't know anything about Elizabeth." But Aunt Myrlie won't tell Bethany who Elizabeth is, and she won't explain why people in her small town react to Bethany as if they've seen a ghost. The mystery intensifies when Bethany gets a package from her father containing four different birth certificates from four different states, with four different last names — and thousands of dollars in cash. And when a strange man shows up asking questions, Bethany realizes the's not the only one who's desperate to unravel the secrets of her past.

This light-weight mystery asks but doesn't answer a question about ethics. It also illustrates how well-intentioned secrets do more harm than good. Fine story for YA reading.

Imagine this; your parents throw you into the car, you don’t even have time to pack clothes into your suitcase. Your mom is crying, non-stop, and your dad won’t tell you where you are going. After hours of driving and passing over several state lines, your dad stops the car and tells you to get out in front of a house you have never seen. As you knock on the front door, a strange old lady comes out and says “Bethany! It’s so good to see you!” You are alone with a person who supposedly is related to you, but you have never met them before. In the middle of the night, the phone rings, you rush to it as fast as you can and answer it. You say “Hello! Mommy, daddy is that you?” Your mom screams “Elizabeth! Thank god you’re alright!” Your name isn’t Elizabeth. Then the phone goes dead. The mystery intensifies when Bethany gets a package from her father a couple of days later, containing four different birth certificates from four different states, with four different last names ��" and thousands of dollars in cash. This thrilling and exhilarating story will leave you on the edge of your seat, and throws a twisted ending so shocking that it will leave you speechless. Margrett Haddix raises the stakes in Double Identity.

Double Identity
Cloning; 1. A cell, cell product, or organism that is genetically identical to the unit or individual from which it was derived.

What do you think about it, cloning the biology behind it, coming up with a cell that you will grow into the clone of a person, or as some might say...... a surrogate. The science behind it, the money, the time, and who would ever volunteer there child [dead or alive] to try and make a exact copy who would never know about there duplicate? Well this is what Double Identity is about, your average 12 year old girl who has grown up not as fortunate as the other kids, and tries to find her true identity. The author Margaret Peterson Haddix [Among The Hidden series, Palace of Mirrors, House on the Gulf, Turnabout, Running Out Of Time, and much more] is a accomplished writer that makes it seem like it would be very easy to set the mood so mysteriously. It has a tempestuous feel to the book the tempts you to read on, but does not foreshadow or reveal to much about the ending. I believe this book is suitable for higher elementary students or lower level middle school children. Overall I believe that the best part of this book is when...... you will have to read the book to figure it out.
