About the Book

Living in her sister’s shadow has never been more dangerous.

Five months ago, Clara Seibert’s twin sister was murdered. Clara was the only person in the house the night Moura was killed and she is the prime suspect, even in the eyes of the detective. Struggling under the suspicion of both the police and her peers, the only thing that makes her feel normal is ghostwriting an advice column for her school’s newspaper--until she starts receiving threatening emails in her staff inbox.

“It Should Have Been You
…But soon”

Convinced that her email stalker blames her for her sister’s death and is out for revenge, she decides to undertake her own investigation to clear her name and avoid a similar fate. Can she solve the murder before it’s too late?

I really like the cover! It highlights the close relationship Clara had with her twin sister. The synopsis sounds very interesting, and it’s something I’ve never quite read before. I will definitely read this book when it gets released.
