Summary: Rachel and Alice are an extremely rare kind of identical twins—so identical that even their aunt and uncle, whom they’ve lived with since their parents passed away, can’t tell them apart. But the sisters are connected in a way that goes well beyond their surfaces: when one experiences pain, the other exhibits the exact same signs of distress. So when one twin mysteriously disappears, the other immediately knows something is wrong—especially when she starts experiencing serious physical traumas, despite the fact that nobody has touched her. As the search commences to find her sister, the twin left behind must rely on their intense bond to uncover the truth. But is there anyone around her she can trust, when everyone could be a suspect? And ultimately, can she even trust herself?
My Thoughts: This was a good, suspenseful read that left me guessing at many points. Just when I thought I knew where the missing twin was, I was given information that made me suspect some other explanation. That coupled with a couple of unexpected twists, and this book kept me on my toes. It also had me engrossed and kept me wanting to read. There were some very surprising twists, and I half expected Alice to discover that she truly is more messed up than she’d ever suspected by discovering that there is no twin. That, fortunately, is not the case. But, as things unfold and you see just what exactly is going on with Alice, you will be shocked. And as for who has Rachel? Well, you’ll think you know, but then you’ll learn something that makes you think it is someone else. Then you’ll learn something that’ll make you think that maybe no one has her and she’s run off with someone. And then you’ll go back and start all over again. I figured it out for sure the same time Alice did.
