I had a life anyone would kill for.

Then someone did.
The worst part of being dead is that there'snothing left to live for. No more kisses. Nomore secrets. No more gossip. It's enoughto kill a girl all over again. But I'm about toget something no one else does--an encoreperformance, thanks to Emma, the long-losttwin sister I never even got to meet.
Now Emma's desperate to know whathappened to me. And the only way to figureit out is to be me--to slip into my old lifeand piece it all together. But can she laughat inside jokes with my best friends? Convincemy boyfriend she's the girl he fell inlove with? Pretend to be a happy, carefreedaughter when she hugs my parents goodnight? And can she keep up the charade, even after she realizes my murderer iswatching her every move?

One day Emma foster brother show her a video,theres someone who totally looks like her in the video,but the video is about murderer. And it's make Emma so curious why there's a girl who totally look like her and why the girl is murderer in the video. So Emma decided to check facebook and found that girl facebook,her name is Sutton Mercer,she is totally looks like Emma,same birthday but different life . Sutton is a rich girl and have a good friends.Emma sends her a message and the girls make plans to meet. When Emma arrives at their meeting place in a park near Sutton’s home, Sutton is nowhere to be found.  But when Sutton’s friends see Emma and drag her to a party assuming she’s Sutton, Emma has no choice but to play along.  Emma tries to convince Sutton’s parents that she isn’t Sutton, but no one believes her. The next morning Emma receives a text telling her that Sutton is dead and that Emma should continue pretending to be Sutton…or she’s next. Emma is shocked, but vows to herself that she will solve the mystery of Sutton’s death, and convince everyone that she isn’t really Sutton.

But solving this mystery isn’t easy. Sutton has many frenemies; many possible suspects. She’s worshiped at school, but also is known for her bitchy demeanor.  Even her best friends and sister Laurel find it difficult to stay on Sutton’s good side. Emma is completely lost in Sutton’s world trying to fit in and understand the many rocky relationships in Sutton’s life all while  attempting o figure out who killed her sister even maybe she will be the next.

The story was told by both Emma and Sutton *as a ghost* perspective and I'M TOTALLY IN LOVE WITH THIS NOVEL!! Even tough it's a bit like 'Pretty Little Liars' but this story was totally worth to read!Sometimes the plot can be boring .Can't wait to buy the 'Never have I ever'!!I give 4.5/5 stars!
