#BookReviews: The Twin by Natasha Preston






Synopsis: Ivy and Iris haven;t lived together for years - when their mother and father divorced, each parent got custody of one twin. But after a tragic accident takes their mom's life, the devastated sisters are reunited, and Iris moves in with Ivy and their dad. Iris takes their mom's death especially hard. She barely talks, spending hours alone in her room. Ivy can't stand to see Iris so sad. She promised Iris that she can share her life now. After all, they're sisters. Twins.

It's a promise that Iris takes seriously. And before long, Ivy's friends, her teachers, and even her boyfriend fall under Iris's spell. Soon Ivy begins to think there's something wrong with her twin. It's almost like Iris is out to get her. Ivy tells herself she's being paranoid. It's not like she's in any danger from her twin...

Rating: ★★
My Review: I loved this authors other stories but this one just didn't wow me. I was kind of hoping this was going to be kind of like My Sister Rosa but unfortunately it was not.  I did enjoy some of the story but for the most part it just wasn't for me.
