From Goodreads. 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.
Review by Kate
NEVER HAVE I EVER, by Sara Shepard is the highly anticipated sequel to her newest series The Lying Game. Emma is still playing Sutton but someone knows that she is not who she pretends to be. Lurking around every corner is Sutton's killer and the games he/she plays with Emma get downright dangerous.
This book was un-put-downable! Shepard has the talent for weaving intricate mystery plots that will make your head spin. There isn't too much I can say without ruining the plot, but Shepard did help eliminate some of the questions I had about who killed Sutton. But along with those eliminations came more suspects and a killer cliffhanger! I am anxiously awaiting the next book in the series to understand who really killed Sutton and why.
I loved that Emma and Ethan are getting closer. They are absolutely adorable and I love that Ethan is the only person who is constant in Emma's life and understands who she really is. I also liked getting a better background on how evil and manipulative Sutton was and how her 'ghost' is handling the revelations as well. Overall, this book is FILLED with heart-pounding suspense and action and I loved each second of it. Shepard truly has me hooked on this series!!
