Emma (Alexandra Chando) and Sutton (also Alexandra Chando) are twin sisters separated at birth, and you do not have to pull the cork on that bottle to detect notes of Princess and Pauper, with an aroma of Zenda and a slight aftertaste of Patty Duke. Emma lives in an inhospitable foster home, where she must contend with a "pervy foster brother" and a foster mother all covered in Las Vegas white trash. Sutton is a rich girl in Phoenix who gives her nonbiological sister (Allie Gonino) and adoptive parents (Andy Buckley and former Supergirl Helen Slater) more grief than they seem to merit. But in these matters, all is never as it seems. Sutton has discovered her unsuspected sibling in the course of secretly searching for her birth parents. Complications and inspirations lead her to install Emma in her place while she runs off to Los Angeles to pursue a clue, advising her to "just hang out, relax, enjoy." Well, that's not going to happen. A little too readily to credit, Emma dives into her new life, inviting contact and conflict — and soaking up some second-hand familial love — rather than, say, faking the flu and pulling the covers over her head until Sutton returns. But that's not going to happen either just yet. Read More

From the Publisher
Annotation Twins separated at birth, a ghost, murder, and a chain of lies so long that they seem never ending are just a few of the intrigues in this gripping young adult series opener. Having lived with several foster care families, Emma Paxton is about to turn 18 and finally be free when she discovers an online video with a girl who could be her doppelganger. Sutton Mercer has everything Emma doesn't, including wealth, a boyfriend, and a group of devoted friends. Just temporarily, Emma is ensconced in Sutton's dreamy life, but soon discovers that all is not as it seems and the stakes are higher than she ever imagined. Sara Shepard is the author of the smash hit series Pretty Little Liars.
