The Lying Game (The Lying Game #1)
"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?
From Sara Shepard, the #1 "New York Times" bestselling author of the "Pretty Little Liars" books, comes a riveting new series about secrets, lies, and killer consequences.
"Let the lying game begin."
The fun of miss popularity goes on!
The lost soul part is what made me read it! :)
“Sutton’s dead,” says the note and Emma has to play her role or else she’ll be dead too but you know what, I love Emma more than Sutton because she’s wiser and she knows how to play the right way. It’s been tough for her to be passed from one foster home to another after being left behind by her biological mother Becky but she’s got both soft and tough heart to let her fight back despite always watching over her Mom Star, Dad Star, Emma Star and Boyfriend Star to come and meet her. :’( It’s an advantage on the other hand to Emma because she’s stronger to face this challenge to try and find her twin and the murderer.
Another great series by Sara Shepard

The Lying Game is a book by Sara Shepard, the well-known author of Pretty Little Liars. The book begins when Emma, a teenager who is in foster care, watches a video of a girl who looks exactly like her online. She discovers that the girl is her long-lost twin sister, Sutton. After sending Sutton a message on Facebook to which she replied, Emma sets out to meet Sutton by her home. After she arrives, Sutton's friends and family mistake Emma for her twin. Emma gets hurled into the mystery that surrounds her twin.
Overall, this is an excellent book that has many twists, turns, and parts that had me laughing or gripping my seat. You feel like you are in Emma's world as you read this book. This is an amazing book and i recommend it to everyone. The ending was the icing on the cake, and I can't wait to read the sequel, Never Have I Ever.

Sutton Mercer wakes up dead, at her long-lost twin sister, Emma's foster home. Sutton unable to communicate with her twin, is left to follow her, trying to uncover her murder. Emma sees a video of Sutton on YouTube and sets out to find her twin. Once Emma arrives at Sutton's town, she is mistaken as Sutton. When Emma tries to tell about her identity, she recieves a threatening message that tells her to keep pretending to be Sutton, or she'll die also. Now Emma has to find the killer of her sister before she's next.
This thriller was a promising start to a series. The mystery is laid out in a way where everyone is a suspect in murdering Sutton, everyone had a motive to get rid of the popular girl. I can't wait to read the sequel.
