My perfect life was a lie.

Now I'd do anything to uncover the truth.

Not long ago, I had everything a girl could wish for: amazing friends, an adorable boyfriend, a loving family. But none of them know that I'm gone--that I'm "dead." To solve my murder, my long-lost twin sister, Emma, has taken my place. She sleeps in my room, wears my clothes, and calls my parents Mom and Dad.

And my killer is watching her every move.

I remember little from my life, just flashes and flickers, so all I can do is follow along as Emma tries to solve the mystery of my disappearance. But the deeper she digs, the more suspects she uncovers. It turns out my friends and I played a lot of games--games that ruined people's lives. Anyone could want revenge . . . anyone could want me--and now Emma--dead.

From Sara Shepard, the #1 "New York Times" bestselling author of the Pretty Little Liars books, comes a riveting series about secrets, lies, and killer consequences.

Never Have I Ever was an amazing sequel. In the second installment of the Lying Game series, Emma starts to find out much more. This book was mostly about the "Twitter Twins". They are very sneaky and suspicious throughout the whole book. I felt really bad for Emma at times because her friends kept wanting to play pranks on the twins but it's not really Emma's kind of thing. She wasn't as mean as Sutton was. But Sutton had a reputation, and Emma has to hold that reputation.

Emma receives more threats and she slowly uncovers more clues. I'm really excited to finally read the next book because I can't wait to find out more. This is what I love most about mysteries. I know that it will be just as good as this one. Again, I loved all the flashbacks that Sutton kept having. It was interesting because we only got them in fragments, so we never knew the whole flashback until the end.

There's a whole new list of suspects in my brain, and I can't wait to find out who will be the last one standing.
