Yes I liked the book because it was appealing
to my age group.
My favorite part was once the conflict arose.
When her boyfriend accused her of being on
the beach with another man when in fact it was

normal teenager with a boyfriend and a clique. She
had two younger siblings and her parents were
still together although they worked a lot in
separate parts of the house. Laurie’s life begun to

others started seeing her doing things and being

She started realizing that someone had her face.
After her and Lia got acquainted she was informed
that Lia was her twin sister and that she’d been
adopted. From that point on after she started doing
her research about her parents etc her life was
never the same.
