Sara Shepard: The Lying Game

Though I didn't review the books, I devoured Sara Shepard's Pretty Little Liars series last summer. It was beyond addictive. So there was no doubt in my mind that I'd read The Lying Game. And guess what? It's just as addictive!

Emma Paxton longs for the feeling of connection that comes with family. Her mother abandoned her when she was five years old, forcing her to live in foster homes.

One afternoon, her foster brother shows her a disturbing online video, featuring a girl who looks just like her. Could it be that Emma has a long-lost twin sister? Realizing she has nothing to lose, she decides to hop a bus, travel across the country, and meet her twin in person.

Sutton Mercer may look like Emma, but that's where the similarities end. Sutton has grown up in a life of privilege, surrounded by a supportive family, a doting boyfriend, and devoted best friends.

Instead of a happy reunion, Emma finds that Sutton is missing. Even more perplexing, Sutton's family and friends believe Emma is Sutton. Now Emma must play the part of a girl she knows nothing about while trying to solve the mystery of her disappearance. It's not long before she discovers that Sutton and her friends are entitled mean girls who play horrible pranks on everyone around them.

Is Sutton's disappearance a prank?

Or did someone get the ultimate revenge?

The Lying Game was definitely an edge-of-your-seat page-turner. The tension was palpable. The investigation into Sutton's disappearance was thrilling. The characters were downright diabolical.

My only complaint was that it didn't give me all the answers I wanted. Needless to say, I cannot wait to read the sequel Never Have I Ever in August.
