Sunny's older sister Jazz was perfect. At least that's what her parents, every teacher in their school, and just about everyone in town thought. So when Jazz graduated and moved to New York City, Sunny was the only one in town who really didn't mind at all. And then the news comes that a terrible fire had broken out and killed Jazz and her roommate, and the whole town mourns But then a letter comes that changes everything. Who wrote it, and who is this girl stepping off the bus, moving home, and saying it was all a mistake and she is Jazz and she is alive and well? Sunny's the only one who's suspicious, and that's going to get her into trouble...
Relatable main character, suspenseful story and a quick read.

I really enjoyed this book! Read it in only one sitting, but a bit confused by it. I can't tell what exactly happened.

A frighteningly good twist when this supposedly "dead sister" shows up on their doorstep and begins to wreak havoc on their lives. And the chaos that ensues as soon as she steps in turns this book into an absolute page turner.
