A good thriller for YA audience. The idea that someone can be too close to another family member to see the truth of his/ her/ their actions rings true. The confusion of the protagonist is believably developed as is her slowly growing strength. The actions of the parents in separating the siblings without explanation to the protagonist rings less true as does their odd uncommunicativeness in the second part of the novel.

This was pretty good. I didn't expect much as it's a young adult book and I'm 30, but I enjoyed the mystery and plot twists without it being as intense as a thriller book for adults. It kept me interested, and I didn't want to stop reading. I would recommend for most ages.
I have remembered this book for over a decade. When I found it here I almost cried. It was just as good as I remembered. A mysterious twin who hides her ENTIRE life and exiles her better half. Then one dies. Only EVERYONE assumes it was the good twin. Once home life seems to be upside down. This is a real page turner, and CLASSIC Caroline B Cooney. This book almost rivals the entire Janey milk carton series.
I loved this book back in junior high and I still like it now. I forgot what exactly happened so I was surprised all over again. I admit its written for a younger audience so it's not a very intense read but I still like it
4.0 out of 5 starsNot amazing literature, but pretty good.

This book has an interesting premise. I liked the thought that a twin could fit so completely into her twin's life that no one would notice the switch, or at least that's what you think it the beginning. It wasn't amazing literature, but I still really liked it.

Enjoyed the book,it got me to thinking about just how cruel kids can.be at all stages of their lives,but high school especially. There will.always be boys like the Pear and girls that will follow like the evil twin.
