The Lying Game

Sooo I've never read any Sara Shepard books before, and I was a little hesitant about picking up this book. But oh my goodness, I'm so glad I did! This book was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Here's the review, where I'll rant about how good this book was...

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. 
Ok, for some dumb reason my computer is stuck on italics, so the rest of the review is gonna be in italics.... haha. Anyways. First of all, even this SUMMARY is amazing! Am I not right? It's like it's haunting you to come and read it. That's how good it was! This book now sits in third place on my all time favorite books list. From the moment I read the first sentence, I was hooked. It sounded like an actual teenager, the voice of the book I mean. And it was so real, too. Like it wasn't just written, it was lived. And the plot, oh the plot, how brilliant can you be to think of a plot this grasping??? You can't live without this book, I'm telling you. Emma was such a cool character, she made rational decisions (unlike some characters I've known) and was always funny. Even though I've finished the book, I still don't know who the culprit is, and that's only because there's a sequel, which I'm really excited about! It was really something new on every page, some new conflict to be resolved, some new people, some new love. It was just pure amazing. I can't wait for everyone to read this book! There's so many places this book could go, and I hope the sequel is just as good as this. I really loved how in between Emma's life, Sutton (the girl who is supposedly watching Emma live her life) would make little comments. They made me laugh sometimes. I don't think I need to say this really, but I was never ever bored while reading this. Ever. So either you're crazy for not reading this book, or I haven't made myself clear enough, this book is AMAZING!!! 

This book deserves...
