This is the first time I read and finished twin sister story.
It is really fast-paced and intriting plot. I really liked the build-up until the final reveal.
So, Anna is found dead one morning and everyone believes she fell down to her death by accident from her bedroom window, in middle of night. Everyone believes except her twin Jess.
Once, Anna had told me how she imagined she'd get ready for a date. "I'd want to wear a dress," she'd said, her voice dreamy. "A pretty one. And perfume. I'd wa ...more
After the death of her twin sister Anna, Jess vows to figure out what happened. The premises had my attention regarding the mystery, but the plot was very slow. Jess was hard to connect with.

She joins track and frequently stalks this teacher, trying to see if he will slip up and do something implementing that will connect him to A ...more
I read this quickly, wanting to find out, along with Jess, what really happened to her twin sister Anna, who died from a fall out of a window. Jess's reaction to grief was realistic and well-portrayed, the resolution was surprising, and I especially appreciated that romance didn't solve all of Jess's problems. This was a suspenseful and satisfying read.

This excellent story begins with Jess, thinking in gym class, that she is doomed to be out of fashion for her whole life and eager to tell her twin Anna about her realization. Only the counselor comes to the door, her parents are in the main office, and her sister Anna has been found dead lying on the ground below her bedroom window.
The rest of the story follows Jess as she tries to find out what happened to her sister and what she didn't know about the person she thought she knew best of anyone ...more
Yes, I'm friends with the author so maybe I'm a little biased, but this book is fantastic. It kept me guessing and I couldn't put it down. I absolutely loved it.
