Review: The Lying Game (The Lying Game #1) by Sara Shepard

Title: The Lying Game (The Lying Game #1)
Author: Sara Shepard
Publisher: HarperTeen
Date Published: December 7th 2011
Genre: YA, Mystery/Thriller
My Rating:


I had a life anyone would kill for.
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.

My Review

I seriously fell in love with Sara Shepard after reading the first three books in the Pretty Little Liars series. The Lying Game is just as good or might even be better. The Lying Game is full of suspense and mystery. It was very addicting. The idea of the story was so intriguing and Shepard really made it work.
Sutton is the twin that got the good life while Emma is stuck in foster care. Now they are seventeen years old and they are getting the chance to meet each other for the first time, or so they think. When Emma gets to the location where they had planned to meet, Sutton is a no show. After that everything becomes a scary movie for Emma. Now that Sutton is dead, someone is determined on making Emma pretend to be her sister. The story is told from Sutton’s point of view, which is a very interesting twist.
If you liked Pretty Little Liars you will surely love this new series, The Lying Game.
