When one sister dies, the other must go to desperate lengths to survive.  After a tragic accident, still haunted by her twin sister's death, Abi is making a fresh start in Bath.

But when she meets siblings Bea and Ben, she is quickly drawn into their privileged and unsettling circle.

When one sister lies, she must protect her secret at all costs. But as Abi tries to keep up with the demands of her fickle friends, strange things start to happen - precious letters go missing and someone leaves threatening messages in her room.

Is this the work of the beautiful and capricious Bea? Or is Abi willing to go to any lengths just to get attention?

My Thoughts
Unlike many who read this book, I thought it was slow and a bit boring.  By reading the back cover I assumed it was about twin sisters, one of which died and one that maybe had a hand in it.  That wasn't exactly the way it turned out, though.  It was more about twins and their bond with each other.  The main character seems really needy and the ending was a bit disturbing.  If you enjoy stories about relationships you will probably like it better than I did.  I Rated This Book:  2/5 Stars **
