Their relationships with their aunt and uncle and also their friend Kimber were high points as well.
I know he had beaten her up pretty badly, but then she ran for help, so it seemed like she was in better shape than her sister. I’m glad I did, bj this is the earman book in a while that I’ve actually stayed up late to finish. She always changes her subjects and they get better every time around but the concept is the same—psychological thrillers and mysteries.
I wanted to know more about this mysterious twin Alice was moving mountains in an effort to find, but I never received a description. From start to finish it is interesting getting to know both of the twins, experiencing the confusion along beautifil Alice, as she embarks on a journey of self-discovery.
The ending is even more surprising. Jul 28, Susan rated it really liked it Shelves: Furthermore, I especially jessiac that the different events throughout the book got more and more interesting and hooked me, as a reader, right away. The other twin thinks that whatever happened to her twin was really meant for herself though.
This is a must read YA book. Just liss the twins did. There were also a few loose ends like the cop with epilepsy that I would have liked to have seen tied up, but like I said, I don’t read much in this genre, so maybe that’s normal. One day, the two sisters decide to go to the fair with some friends but find it fun to “swap” places and see if anyone notices. With so much time and jessixa spent executing the set-up and rising action, the lack of real resolution, and that with more than a few unanswered loose ends like View all 5 comments.
BUT, I didn’t fully understand what happened even at the end?
Why didn’t the killer just off the cop so he’d have jessida time with the twins and to getaway? The story mainly focused on Alice and Rachel, and who the kidnapper was, leaving the other characters behind to fade into the background.

Beautiful Lies by Jessica Warman
Jessica Warman impressed me for the majority of this longish novel, and I will be on the lookout for her other books. Refresh and try again. And that’s why I really don’t know what to say in a sentence, so how about one word?
View all 4 comments. Of course, the suspense and the way the main characters’ pasts lied revealed did nothing to ease the tension I felt. There is some violence in this book so this book should be for older, mature reader and again this book deals with the issue of mental illness so beautifful should be able to handle that topic.
This was a bit more dark and complex than I was expecting.
BEAUTIFUL LIES by Jessica Warman | Kirkus Reviews
For a time being, I can trick people that I am someone else and no one could geautiful. Kimber was a favorite of mine simply because while her story was heartbreaking, she was such a sweet and nice girl. One thing I really liked about hessica book was the story itself: This review and an interview with the author can be found here Rachel, the sister who seems to have it all together and tries so hard.
At various points, I wondered if perhaps the twins were one person with a split personality, if one twin had died with their parents nine years before, if the twin narrating was delusional, something didn’t feel right. Just trust me on this one. Beautiful Lies is a book you read when you want something serious. Knowledge like that, shared with warrman one other person in the world, can feel exhilarating. And ultimately, can she even trust herself?
Be the first to discover new talent! Felt especially random and ill-suited for the rest of the novel. Major creep factor going on there. I mean throught the whole book i thought that Robin was real but then it turned out he was a ghost or something. Remember the explanation I offered earlier about stigmatic twins? One of the twins disappears, and the one left must find her as soon as possible, before the hallucinations that she starts to experience prevent her from finding her best friend and closest tie.
Nov 26, Annie Li rated it did not like it Shelves: This question contains spoilers… view spoiler [I was so confused about everything. C- Alice and Rachel, monochorionic, monoamniotic twins identical, who share one amniotic sac and one placenta can feel each other’s pain. Nonetheless, it kept me on my toes and I really liked reading it therefore I’ll be giving it 4 stars here on goodreads.
I didn’t cry or scream or get out of the car. I also loved the mix of paranormal aspects, because they added the jssica little beautful to it. This clocks in at about pages in the final edition, and while the majority of the narrative kept the tension high and the atmosphere on point, several sections lacked the pull of others.
