Dead Ringer


I want to thank +NetGalley and +Jessie Rosen for the chance to read this book. I received this in exchange for an honest review. Any opinions here are of my own, and aren't swayed by the people I've gotten the book from. Opinions may vary from person to person.
Name: Dead Ringer
Author: Jessie Rosen
Publisher: Full Fathom Five Digital
Pages: 291
Rating: 4/5
Synopsis:
From the moment Laura Rivers steps foot into Englewood High, she notices the stares--and they aren't the typical once-overs every pretty new girl endures. The students seem confused and...spooked. Whispers echoing through the halls confirm that something is seriously off. "That new girl looks just like her," they say.
 
It turns out Laura has a doppelgänger, and it isn't just anyone--it's Sarah Castro-Tanner, the girl who killed herself by jumping into the Navasink River one year ago.
 
Laura is determined not to let the gossip ruin her chances of making a fresh start. Thanks to her charming personality and California tan, she catches the eye of Englewood's undisputed golden boy, Charlie Sanders, and it's only a matter of time before they make their relationship official.
 
But something is making Charlie and his friends paranoid--and Laura soon discovers it has to do with Sarah Castro-Tanner.
What really happened to Sarah? Why is Charlie unraveling? And how does Laura Rivers fit into it all?
 
After all, she's the dead ringer for a dead girl.

Review:
I'm only giving this book 4/5 because it took me at least 70 pages to get into it. Other than that, I LOVED the twists and turns in this book. There were plenty of them within this short book, and none of them I could predict. I was constantly guessing wrong with who was behind things. This book has the feel of Pretty Little Liars in a sense, but definitely had it's very own feel. 
The best part was the cliff-hanger. I totally thought I had at least sixty pages left, butttt it ended! I was like, "NOOOOOOO. WHAT!" There's going to be a second book though, I hope! That excites me most definitely. Check out this book if you enjoy mysteries with twists and turns.
