Publisher's Summary

A girl takes over her twin sister's identity in this emotionally charged story about the complicated bond between sisters.

Ella and Maddy Lawton are identical twins. Ella has spent her high school years living in popular Maddy's shadows, but she has never been envious of Maddy. In fact, she's chosen the quiet, safe confines of her sketchbook over the constant battle for attention that has defined Maddy's world.

When - after a heated argument - Maddy and Ella get into a tragic accident that leaves her sister dead, Ella wakes up in the hospital surrounded by loved ones who believe she is Maddy. Feeling responsible for Maddy's death and everyone's grief, Ella makes a split-second decision to pretend to be Maddy. Soon, Ella realizes that Maddy's life was full of secrets. Caught in a web of lies, Ella is faced with two options - confess her deception or live her sister's life.

    Avid reader who hates it when editors or writers butcher the English language. Honest reviewer.

    "Sad"

    The narrator was excellent but the material wasn't equal with her talent. I feel that the story wasn't as developed as it could have been. It just didn't capture Ella's state of mind or the nuances of tone or inflection that make a character dynamic.

    Story
    "Why can't the solution be simple"

    I do not get why characters will purposely make life hard. Honestly, there was no real reason for this book. It frustrated me that the problems had to be expanded enough to keep the book going without there being a "real" problem to begin with - except a "misunderstanding". Yes, at the end she figured out the truth, but it was a given. I am tempted to call the main character an idiot. She is build up to be this briliant, creative girl, and yet, people have to spell out the truth for her at the end. I think the story's biggest problem is that we have heard it told before.

    "Exhausting"

    This book started out so good. The first half was riveting and entertaining and heart wrenching. And then... It became soooo annoying. The heroine was so weak it was amazing. Not just weak in the sense of "oh I'm beautiful but I don't know it", this girl was borderline pathetic in her "no one likes me, no one wants me, no one sees me, even though I have parents that love me and a best friend that loves me I just can't see it". And the deep dark secrets she uncovers are junior high bs that every girl deals with.
