Then someone did.
The worst part of being dead is that there’s nothing left to live for. No more kisses. No more secrets. No more gossip. It’s enough to kill a girl all over again. But I’m about to get something no one else does—an encore performance, thanks to Emma, the long-lost twin sister I never even got to meet.
Now Emma’s desperate to know what happened to me. And the only way to figure it out is to be me—to slip into my old life and piece it all together. But can she laugh at inside jokes with my best friends? Convince my boyfriend she’s the girl he fell in love with? Pretend to be a happy, carefree daughter when she hugs my parents good night? And can she keep up the charade, even after she realizes my murderer is watching her every move?

I love Pretty Little Liars the TV show and had been wanting to read the series but not while I was watching the show too (I thought that might get a little confusing). So when I found out Sara Shepard had another series and the first book was available for request on NetGalley, I jumped at the chance to get it and read it. And let me tell you, it did not disappoint. One page you think you have figured out just what happened and just who did it, but then you turn the page and you start suspecting someone else entirely different.
The story is told from Sutton's point of view, who was killed and now her spirit is watching her long-lost twin sister Emma try and be Sutton while she tries to solve her murder all while trying to not get killed herself.
The twist and turns kept me on the edge of my seat, but were not overwhelming. I found myself starting to like a couple of the characters just to have that turned on me and those characters be made the murder suspects. That happened a couple of times so I finally decided it was probably better not to get attached to anyone, but that is going to be so hard because the characters are made to be so likeable.
The last couple of chapters had really good twists and then a cliffhanger that left me craving more. I cannot wait for the second book. Thank goodness it's not that long of a wait.
"Never Have I Ever (The Lying Game #2)" comes out April 8th 2011.
