Review: Never Have I Ever

Summary:My perfect life was a lie. 

Now I’d do anything to uncover the truth. 

Not long ago, I had everything a girl could wish for: amazing friends, an adorable boyfriend, a loving family. But none of them know that I’m gone—that I’m dead. To solve my murder, my long-lost twin sister, Emma, has taken my place. She sleeps in my room, wears my clothes, and calls my parents Mom and Dad. 

And my killer is watching her every move. 

I remember little from my life, just flashes and flickers, so all I can do is follow along as Emma tries to solve the mystery of my disappearance. But the deeper she digs, the more suspects she uncovers. It turns out my friends and I played a lot of games—games that ruined people’s lives. Anyone could want revenge . . . anyone could want me—and now Emma—dead. 

Review: I'm writing the review of this book while watching the premiere of the show on ABC family. And as's different already! This isn't how the girls met, they didn't have long lengthy convos online butttt this isn't a review of the show, so moving on. I still don't know how they can have a show on a book series with all of TWO books, one when the show started filming. Okay, seriously, enough. I liked this book a whole lot more than I liked the first book. Every time Emma got a new lead it was squashed and she found herself at square one and confused all over again. It still grossed me out to read a book with the love interest named Ethan (that's my brothers name). But all in all I really enjoyed this book, like I said a whole lot more than the first. You get to know all the main character's a lot more in this one, hearing the story behind mysterious Thayer, and Madeline's home life. The more Emma falls for Ethan I did too. You also get to read more about the pranks they played in the Lying Game which was fun to see, how did the girls get in trouble for this one? One thing I have a problem with was the narration by Sutton, it kept really confusing me, I thought I was reading from a non-specific narrator, and then Emma then it would bounce to Sutton and I was never quite sure who was narrating until they would mention a name. But that's easily overlooked. I will definitely keep reading the series I'm starting to really like it.

3/5 stars
