I thought this book was really good. I liked how Samantha (the main character) never forgot about her real father and her twin sister who drowned when they were little. She knew that her dad was still alive, but she didn't know where he was. When she goes to visit a Psychologist because she wanted to find out where her father was, she hears something that changes her thoughts. The Psychologist tells her that her sister really isn't dead, that shes still alive. Samantha couldn't get this thought through her head though. It was impossibe...or so she thought. She decided to get into this "mystery" a little more. She found old newspapers, old boxes, and talked to her mom about her sister. Her mom didn't seem so sure that her sister was still alive though. She told her that her sister drowned at the local Cleaarwater quarry when they were 3 years old, that it was impossible for her to still be alive. But Samantha didn't give up so easily. She was determined and tried everything to get in contact with her father and her sister. This determination helped her along her journey to find this missing part of her family.
