APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
This teen mystery revolves around the disappearance of a popular clique’s queen bee—and her long-lost twin sister’s mission to expose the treachery that led to her demise. The Lying Game is the first book in a series by Pretty Little Liars author Sara Shepard, whose self-assured pacing keeps the pages flying as readers yearn to know more about the L Game and its mischievous players. Shepard paints a titillating portrait of twin sisters with radically different destinies: Sutton, the spoiled, superficial prankster adopted into an affluent family, and Emma—warm, self-deprecating, thoughtful and floundering in a string of foster homes—who realises she had better fill Sutton’s high-heeled shoes...or else.
Those who get past the improbable premise of Shepard's (the Pretty Little Liars books) series debut will find a fun and fast-moving mystery. Foster kid Emma never knew she had an identical twin until she sees an online video of a girl named Sutton being choked by a masked figure. She tries to contact her, but a planned reunion goes awry when Sutton never shows up (readers know this is because she has been killed; Sutton narrates the book as a ghost, unable to communicate with Emma, but eager to "solve my own murder"). Kicked out of her foster home and mistaken for Sutton by Sutton's friends and family, Emma starts living her privileged life; the stakes rise dramatically when she learns her other half is dead. Clique lit fans will recognize the familiar mix of label-dropping and mean girl behavior, but the dark mystery adds a compelling layer. Readers may have a hard time buying the ease with which Emma slips into Sutton's very different life, but they will race through the pages as Emma pieces together clues and will have plenty to ponder as they anticipate the next installment. Ages 14 up.
