Yes I liked the book because it was appealing to my age group. My favorite part was once the conflict arose. When her boyfriend accused her of being on the beach with another man when in fact it was her twin. I would tell my friend that if your bored and have nothing to do pick up the book but if not it would just be time consuming.
My character Laurie Stratton was a 17 year old girl who lived in the Cliff House on the northern tip of Brighton Island. She has two younger siblings (Neal her brother and Megan her sister) and was adopted although she didn’t know at first.

My book was about a girl named Laurie who was a normal teenager with a boyfriend and a clique. She had two younger siblings and her parents were still together although they worked a lot in separate parts of the house. Laurie’s life begun to take a curve when Gordan (her boyfriend) and others started seeing her doing things and being places that she herself didn’t recall doing or being. She started realizing that someone had her face. After her and Lia got acquainted she was informed that Lia was her twin sister and that she’d been adopted. From that point on after she started doing her research about her parents etc her life was never the same.

The conflict of the story was when Laurie begun to realize that somebody looked like her and her twin sister (Lia) was trying to take her life
The rising action took place when Laurie got sick and couldn’t attend the last party of the summer before school started back.
Lia started causing chaos because others could see her and started believing it was Laurie doing everything. Once Laurie begun understanding what was going on she tried to fix it and learn more about it.
The climax was when Laurie begun finding out the truth about her real parents and her twin sister Lia. She begun doing research and started accepting the facts about what had happened and what was happening.
The falling action was when Laurie figured out what Lia was trying to do and why she had been haunting her. Laurie knows that Lia is trying to kill her and take over her body. Lia ends up falling because Laurie stops her evil plan.
Laurie was okay and her evil twin sisters plan of taking her soul didn’t work. Laurie lived her life happily ever after with her family. She didn’t regret what happened because she learned from the whole experience. In the end she wasn’t mad at her parents for not telling her the truth and her siblings loved her even more.
