Jamie | 11096 comments Identical twins. Identical DNA. Identical suspects. It's Pretty Little Liars meets Revenge in this edge-of-your-seat thriller with a shocking twist.

When they were little, Lexi and her identical twin, Ava, made up a third sister, Alicia. If something broke? Alicia did it. Cookies got eaten? Alicia's guilty. Alicia was always to blame for everything. The game is all grown up now that the girls are seniors. They use Alicia as their cover to go out with boys who are hot but not exactly dating material. Boys they'd never, ever be with in real life.

The Third Twin by C.J. Omololu Now one of the guys Alicia went out with has turned up dead, and Lexi wants to stop the game for good. As coincidences start piling up, Ava insists that if they follow the rules for being Alicia, everything will be fine. But when another boy is killed, the DNA evidence and surveillance photos point to only one suspect: Alicia. The girl who doesn't exist. As she runs from the cops, Lexi has to find the truth before another boy is murdered. Because either Ava is a killer…or Alicia is real.


Karen Barber | 10589 comments Have got my copy of this so might start a day or two early. Love the idea!


Karen Barber | 10589 comments Up to ch6. Neither sister is very appealing. Dynamics are a little odd.


Karen Barber | 10589 comments Up to ch9. (view spoiler)


Karen Barber | 10589 comments Up to ch19. (view spoiler)


Karen Barber | 10589 comments Up to ch25. That clears one element of the story up, but we still have no idea who’s actually behind all this creepy stuff.


Karen Barber | 10589 comments Finished. Review on home page. Exaggerated in a Pretty Little Liars vein. Quite daft, but entertaining.


Farren (mmmcookies) | 357 comments I started this after work today and read a few chapters before falling asleep lol It seems like an easy quick read which is exactly what I need right now.

Ch. 1 (view spoiler)

I'll probably end up finishing this tomorrow or Sunday after work since the text is gigantic


Karen Barber | 10589 comments It was, definitely, quite a quick read. I agree, you get into it easily.


Farren (mmmcookies) | 357 comments I read half of the book yesterday, up to chapter 15. I agree that (view spoiler)

That being said, I am pretty hooked and will be finishing the book today since I'm having a lazy day lol

Definitely not a good decision, yet still one of the better ones made in this book! It's very PLL-ish in that way

Agreed it was sad, but I always appreciate when an author is willing to make a risk like that in their story!

Same. Not all has to be happy and good.
