This book is very engaging with a lot of plot twists. I would add that if you don't like bloody murder scenes (as I don't) then don't read this book! Once I started reading this book it was so good that I couldn't put it down so I barreled right into the murder scene and then had nightmares for a week...

OMG this book was full of unexpected events!!! I was guessing a lot and I actually got right but then it changed again... I really suck at predicting...Anyways, This book was AWESOME!!! you have to read this book because it was just so good and it kept me turning the pages...it takes place in the olden days where there were witch trials so if you want to know more about that read this book!!

One day a bedraggled stranger arrives at Lucy Sexton’s door—her mother’s identical twin sister, lost to them since birth. The family takes her in, but intrigue and worse soon follow. As Lucy tries to sort things out, she realizes that nothing is as it seems—or should be. Great concept, and well-plotted (I got fooled, which is hard to do these days). The writing isn’t spectacular, so you aren’t drawn in, but it’s definitely worth reading for the plot.

A very intense mystery, complete with love, and jeolousy. At times, it's a little confusing, but as a whole is a good book.

This book was well written in that the story had a wonderful plot and a ton of twists and turns that kept the reader engaged and enjoying it right down to the very end. But, I will say that this book could get confusing, and somethings would have to be reread, but if you stick with it, it is worth it.

A great book to read with your free time, or school assignment. It's a confusing book, but you will be so confused to continue reading and finish the book. A book I couldn't put down all winter break.

Pure teen entertainment, full of twists and turns. Level of reading seems aimed for high school age. Spoiler alert: Midway through the book, the seemingly lighthearted story about how the twin adapts to higher society, takes a violent turn. There is also a little sexual content. I would not recommend this book for a young innocent teen. Otherwise, it's a page turner.

This book is such a wonderfully fast-paced book that you'll devour it in a matter of hours!! I couldn't put it down...and that's saying a lot since I haven't had the time recently to read more than 5 pages at one time. It's studded throughout with quietly kept secrets, dark intentions, and real characters. To top it all off, this book has an ending that will BLOW YOUR MIND.

This book was the best book I have read in a long time! It is a book I could read over and over again! I wish I didn't have to give it back to the library, I love it sooooo much! So many people die over the coarse of Lucy's life but she gets used to them gone.There is such dark secrets later in the book, I didn't see it coming!!! soooooooooooooo goooooood!!! I recomment this for anyone, it is the best book in of the year and of all the years I have been alive!!!

Violence: Spoiler alert! There is a bloody murder scene. May not be suitable for young teens/tweens who could be frightened by bloody images.

Sexual Content: An entertaining read for teens, but parents of tweens/very young teens should be aware that there is some sexual content, mainly references to hearing sexual sounds. There is nothing explicit.
