This Australian thriller is about twins swapping places, but not in a fun way. All the characters in this book are despicable, shallow, or just plain stupid. There were a few twists, but for the most part, the plot was predictable and disappointing. I’m only giving it three stars for the twist at the end, but I mostly couldn’t wait to finish it.

(contains spoilers) I really, really enjoyed this book! Amazing twist that I guessed right before it was revealed, but the author set it up nicely with enough clues so you can figure it out. The little boy, Tarquin, gave away some amazing clues. I'd call this like a thriller beach read. It was quick and fun and I enjoyed it a lot. I love that Summer, the perfect twin, ended up really being the bad twin. And I just knew in the end, it was her that had killed Iris. But again, I think it was obvious and the author did a great job of not dragging it out. You find out quickly, so I don't think that was meant to be a big twist. Just an overall a great story! I do feel like I probably should've figured out the end before I did, with Summer giving Iris all the information. But again, I thought Iris was the bad twin. Anyway, great little thriller beach read that I listened to in just a couple of days.… (mere)

This book was a dream! I can't believe I let it sit on my tbr list for so long.

The cast of children were well developed and raw characters. They all carried their experiences in a way that shaped their personalities. So well done, and believable. These kids are the outcasts that we know, the people that spend their life searching for the place they belong. The lgbtqia reps were flawless, they flowed into the story seemlessly.

I was not expecting the murder mystery at all, and did not pick the correct culprit either. The final twists were well laid out, and crumbs were dropped now that I look back at the story, I just didn't catch them.

And finally, all the social commentary was spot on. It really shined light on our twisted view of raising children, and more.

If you love [b:The Ten Thousand Doors of January|43521657|The Ten Thousand Doors of January|Alix E. Harrow||63516505] or [b:The Starless Sea|43575115|The Starless Sea|Erin Morgenstern||66444785] you're going to LOVE this book. Has the same whimsical fantasy air about it. I can't wait to read the next in series.
