It's an interesting concept, but it wasn't very deep and ended kind of abruptly. Was she haunted or did she have a split personality.

This isn't written well. At all. I feel like this story could have been so, so much more. The story is so different from anything I've ever read. I liked the relationship between Janine and Scott. I liked Rafe's part in things. But it wasn't believable in any sense.
What Mother isn't concerned when her teenage daughter wants to be called by her dead twins name? Uh, that's not normal and I don't care what anyone says. Nope, no dead twin, no alive twin, nothing like that in my world but I can still say with 100% certainly that it is NOT normal.
I totally didn't get the end. I still don't understand what the hell happened to be honest. The writing was very..... topical if that makes sense. That's the word that comes to mind. There was nothing underneath it. There was no depth.
It was all cut and dry and not believable. That doesn't work for a story like this, one that centers around family and relationships.
This author is a teacher at Pasadena City College and UCLA. Remind me never to go there will you?
Miss this one - you won't miss anything.
