The sisters are connected by an intense bond that goes way beyond their surfaces and borders on the supernatural: when one experiences pain, the other exhibits the exact same signs of stress, too. So when troubled Alice disappears mysteriously one night, good-girl Rachel knows something is wrong-especially when Rachel starts experiencing serious physical traumas, even though nobody has touched her.
And that Rachel. So then, what happened to her sister? Could whoever abducted her sister really have meant to take her, instead? Beautiful Lies lied beautifully to me…all the way through to the end. Did I love it? Did I hate it? Rachel and Alice are identical twins. They are so identical, in fact, that their aunt and uncle cannot tell them apart. They are a rare kind of twin that shared an amniotic sac in utero, when typically the survival rates of such twins are low.
Since Rachel and Alice are so rare, they share a connection that seems to go beyond the deep connections twins usually already possess: when something happens to Rachel, Alice feels it and sometimes it actually happens to her, too — like if Rachel chokes on something, Alice feels the choking sensation as well.
They can communicate to each other through dreams, without words, across distances. And Google will bring you dozens more stories. What if you could be a fly on the wall and find out what other people really felt about you? If you were a twin and you could switch places, and nobody would know the difference, would you do it? And why not, you know? No one can tell them apart. She has her reasons. Alice is the bad twin. People expect bad things from her. Why not just out yourself so there is a sense of urgency to find Rachel?
Yeah, just read it. However, I did have a gut feeling I knew who the bad guy was, and I was right so…always trust your gut! But there were a lot of other surprises in this book that blew me away. It just flows naturally from page to page, with a nearly lyrical quality to it.
I had a hard time putting Beautiful Lies down, for the writing and just wanting to find out what the hell was going on. Her characters are realistic and keenly felt; my heart broke for them as she delved into their histories.
I actually gave serious thought to not reviewing this book at all. I think my thoughts are coming across as jumbled and, well, just not linear. I do not recommend this book for people looking for a light read.
Not at all. I think I want a whiteboard so I can draw out all the characters and relationships and timelines. Quote I thought I could sense the warmth from his body.
Beautiful Lies by Jessica Warman
Daran Beautiful Lies I liked that Kimber is able to show Alice the truth, and I feel that in the future, Alice would have been able to get help. And ultimately, can she even trust herself? I thought it was realistic in the way it portrays their casual use of things like pills and weed. I am becoming a large fan of the unreliable narrator for novels — as long as it is handled as easily and smartly as it is here. Alice has always been the bad girl in the family.
