Bethany's only clue is a few words she overheard her father tell her aunt: "She doesn't know anything about Elizabeth." But Aunt Myrlie won't tell Bethany who Elizabeth is, and she won't explain why people in her small town react to Bethany as if they've seen a ghost. The mystery intensifies when Bethany gets a package from her father containing four different birth certificates from four different states, with four different last names -- and thousands of dollars in cash. And when a strange man shows up asking questions, Bethany realizes the's not the only one who's desperate to unravel the secrets of her past.
I was really disappointed in this book. The first two-thirds of the book were insanely slow and then the last third felt like the author was rushing to finish the story.

The book Double Identity by Haddix, is not your usualy book. I really hate cliche books and this book is definately far from it. It is about a girl with extremely overprotective and clingy parents. She has never been apart from them. But things suddenly start to change when all of a sudden whenever her mother looks at here she statrts sobbing uncontrolobly. And to make matters worse out of nowhere Bethany's parents decide to place her under the care of an aunt she has never heard of. So many questions start forming in her mind; and more questions start to form when she gets a strange phone call from her mother instead of calling her Bethany she calls her Elizabeth. She acts her aunt many of these questions and only gets one answer. 13 years ago from that one week from that day is the day Bethany's long lost sister Elizebeth died in a car crash.
This book is one of the most interestiong books I have ever read and i reccomend it to anybody.

Double Identity is a very good book with many twists and turns you don't ever see coming. I have read more than 5 times!
