Waiting on Wednesday: The Lying Game


"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by
Jill @ Breaking The Spine
that spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating!

This week I am waiting for:

New York Times bestselling author Sara Shepard’s new series weaves a mystery of long-lost twins, mistaken identities, a duplicitous circle of friends, and cold-blooded murder. Combining juicy plot lines, to-die-for lifestyles, a tangled web of friendship and romance, magnetic characters, and sharp-witted narration from the afterlife, The Lying Game is an alluring cross between Pretty Little Liars and The Lovely Bones.

Foster kid Emma Paxton has only just discovered Sutton Mercer, the wealthy twin sister she never knew she had, when Sutton drops off the face of the earth, asking Emma to cover for her at home, school, and with her friends—just for a few days. At first Emma enjoys trying on her sister’s fabulous life: her fiercely loyal friends, her adoring boyfriend, her close-knit family. But as Emma is drawn deeper into Sutton’s world she finds the friends are not so fabulous, the boyfriend is not who she wants to be with, and the family is clinging to long-buried secrets and a veneer of functionality. And worst of all, Sutton may not be coming back. In fact, someone may have made sure she never could…and that someone knows Emma is not who she claims to be. Emma will need all her wits to survive The Lying Game.

I can't wait for this one. I love the idea of this one. I love the Pretty Little Liars and The lying game sounds really good! The lying game comes out December 7 2010. Make sure to check it out!

What are you waiting for?

I ran into a co-worker's daughter at the library the other day - she was picking up Pretty Little Liars and I told her about this one coming out - she was so excited! I've never read any of her work, but this sounds interesting!
