The Lying Game

The Lying Game
By Sara Shepard


Summary:

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, care-free daughter when she hugs my parents goodnight? And can she keep up the charade, even after she realizes my murderer is watching her every move?

Let the lying game begin.

4/5 Stars

Ok, I don't know what I was expecting when I started this book, but it definitely exceeded expectations. I knew this book was going to be good since it is written by the same author as Pretty Little Liars (haven't actually read it, but heard good things), so I decided to dive right in. I really liked how creative the idea of this book is. I mean, I see a lot of books nowadays that have pretty much the same plot, so this was pretty refreshing. The book is told from the perspective of Sutton, the girl who is dead, and it is narrating what is happening to Emma (her twin sister). At first I was a little confused, but it didn't take me that long to catch on. I really liked how it mostly was just telling Emma's story, but then occasionally there would be some commentary from Sutton sprinkled in. I loved the mystery aspect of the book; it always kept me guessing, and I liked how since I didn't know what was going on, I kind of got to experience it as Emma was experiencing it. This book was super easy to get into. You know when you're reading a scary book and you have to occasionally look around you because you feel like you're in that world? That definitely happened while I read this. It was nice to have a book I could get so into. So, if you like murder mysteries, or you like Pretty Little Liars, you should definitely pick up this book.

Also, look how all of the books in the series line up, isn't it so satisfying?
