Review: The Lying Game - Sara Shepard

  • Reading level: Young Adult
  • Hardcover: 320 pages
  • Publisher: HarperTeen (December 7, 2010)

I had a life anyone would kill for.
Then someone did.
The worst part of being dead is that there’s nothing left to live for. No more kisses. No more secrets. No more gossip. It’s enough to kill a girl all over again. But I’m about to get something no one else does—an encore performance, thanks to Emma, the long-lost twin sister I never even got to meet.
Now Emma’s desperate to know what happened to me. And the only way to figure it out is to be me—to slip into my old life and piece it all together. But can she laugh at inside jokes with my best friends? Convince my boyfriend she’s the girl he fell in love with? Pretend to be a happy, carefree daughter when she hugs my parents good night? And can she keep up the charade, even after she realizes my murderer is watching her every move?
From Sara Shepard, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of thePretty Little Liars books, comes a riveting new series about secrets, lies, and killer consequences.
Let the lying game begin.

My Thoughts...
I really really enjoyed this book.  It was suspenseful, a little frightening, tense, and heartfelt.  To find another person on the internet that looks just like you would be very confusing, but to see your "twin" involved in an apparent snuff film must be down right disturbing.  So you find a name for this person and contact them only to find out that you really are probably long lost twins!  You make plans to meet but while waiting you are found by your long lost twins friends and are mistaken for her.  Going along pretending to be her in hopes that there is a mistake and will meet up with her at some point.  Only to find out that your long lost twin is dead and her murder wants you to live her life.  Learning as you go about the girl you are now suppose to be, and not liking everything you find out.  The more you learn the more you find out that everyone around you might have killed your sister and be threatening to you.  I loved how nothing happened quite like I expected it to.  I give this one 5 stars and hope that all of you give it a try!
