Horn Book Review

Ghost Sutton watches as her twin Emma uncovers secrets about her family in this fifth Lying Game novel. Their mentally ill birth mother, Becky, has reappeared--and could be dangerous. Did she kill Sutton? (Hint: There will be a sequel.) Though series fans might find the plot arc too familiar, they'll be sucked back in by the characteristically shocking ending. (c) Copyright 2013.
