It started out as a science project Ö Missy had to cook up a scientific hoax, and she thought this would be the perfect one -- to claim that her cousin Claire was actually her long-lost identical twin sister.  But then, suddenly, the hoax seems to become all too real.  After all, she and Claire do look kind of alike, and they are so close it is sometimes scary.  Could it be that Missy and Claire really ARE identical twin sisters separated at birth?  That they were both adopted, and for sixteen years nobody has ever told them?  And that somewhere they have birth parents that they don't know?  When a video of Missy and Claire goes viral, and reaches another sixteen-year-old girl named Genevieve, the situation becomes even more complicated.  Who is related to whom?  Who are the birth parents?  And why does Genevieve feel so alone?  Read this page-turner by the author of Face on the Milk Carton for an exciting tale of love, abandonment and betrayal that you won't want to put down.  (Pennsylvania Young Readerís Choice Awards Program Booktalks 2012-2013)
