Beautiful Lies by Jessica Warman
Publisher: Walker Childrens
Released Date: August 7, 2012
Hardcover: 432 Pages
Rachel and Alice are an extremely rare kind of identical twins-so identical that even their aunt and uncle, whom they’ve lived with since their parents passed away, can’t tell them apart. But the sisters are connected in a way that goes well beyond their surfaces: when one experiences pain, the other exhibits the exact same signs of distress. So when one twin mysteriously disappears, the other immediately knows something is wrong-especially when she starts experiencing serious physical traumas, despite the fact that nobody has touched her. As the search commences to find her sister, the twin left behind must rely on their intense bond to uncover the truth. But is there anyone around her she can trust, when everyone could be a suspect? And ultimately, can she even trust herself? Master storyteller Jessica Warman will keep readers guessing when everything they see-and everything they are told-suddenly becomes unreliable in this page-turning literary thriller.
First of all, when I heard the author, Jessica Warman, who wrote, yet, another book, I was ecstatic. I was always a fan of her books. Of course, I would accept this book as a review.
Something that drew me into this book was the synopsis and how the story started. As I read on, it seemed more and more interesting, especially knowing that these two identical twins had swapped places. One of them goes missing and the other has those â€śtwin sensesâ€ť that she is alive and is looking for her.
It seems interesting and I was hooked, however, as the story progresses, I just could not get into the book. Although I have finished the book, I did not like it as much as I thought I would. This book is a psychological thriller and usually those arenâ€™t the genre I read because usually I donâ€™t really enjoy them as much. I gave Beautiful Lies a chance because it was written by one of my favorite authors.
