The Twin is the next thriller you’ve been looking for. This book was an absolute page-turner. Ivy and Iris are twin sisters. Ivy lives with their dad, while Iris lives with their mom, since their parents are divorced. One day, the twins’ mom is involved in a fatal running accident and so Iris goes to live with Ivy and their dad. What happens from there onward is a nightmare.
Ivy is the tomboy of the twins and loves her jeans and rock ‘n roll vintage tees. I pictured Iris to be more of the mean girl type with her high heels and skirts. Regardless of their differences, Ivy makes an effort to help her twin through tough times. But Iris has not shed one tear for their mother. As one bad thing after another happens to Ivy, she realizes that Iris is trying to not only sabotage her life but also to take all the good things she has going for her away.
This book was a quick read because the storyline flowed so well. I wondered the whole time what would happen next. I also couldn’t understand how it wasn’t obvious to the people around the twins just how manipulative Iris was, especially to their dad, who was really close to Ivy. The ending was a bit disappointing and I wish the story had a bit more closure to allow readers to foresee what would happen to the characters in the future. Overall, it is a fun and exciting read for fans of suspense and domestic thrillers.
