Twins separated at birth, a ghost, murder, and a chain of lies so long that they seem never ending are just a few of the intrigues in this gripping young adult series opener. Having lived with several foster care families, Emma Paxton is about to turn 18 and finally be free when she discovers an online video with a girl who could be her doppelganger. Sutton Mercer has everything Emma doesn't, including wealth, a boyfriend, and a group of devoted friends. Just temporarily, Emma is ensconced in Sutton's dreamy life, but soon discovers that all is not as it seems and the stakes are higher than she ever imagined. Sara Shepard is the author of the smash hit series Pretty Little Liars.
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 the Pretty Little Liars books, comes a riveting new series about secrets, lies, and killer consequences.
Let the lying game begin.
