This is the second installment in The Lying Game series by Sara Shepard. If you are unfamiliar with the series, it is about two twin sisters; Emma and Sutton. These sisters were separated at birth, and have grown up in completely different environments. Emma has been living in foster homes since she was little and has always dreamed of having a normal life. On the other hand, Sutton was adopted into a wealthy family, has the nice house, nice car, and preppy friends; a life many of us would be envious of. When Emma stumbles upon a video of someone looking identical to her being strangled, she goes on the hunt looking for her long lost sister. Although the one thing Emma doesn’t know right away is that her sister Sutton has been murdered and her killer is trying to lure Emma closer, although we don’t know why — maybe to kill her too? Later on, Emma takes the place of Sutton and carries on her life to find more clues regarding what happened to her sister. The killer is closer than you think, and has even threatened Emma to keep up the act of being Sutton or something terrible will happen to her.
In the second book, Never Have I Ever, Emma is still pretending to be Sutton and is trying to get one step further in solving her sisters murder — and ultimately find out who the killer is. Throughout the first book and this one as well, Emma realizes that Sutton had a lot of enemies because of The Lying Game. This game was developed by Sutton and her friends while the premise of this game is to prank different people — and even your closest friends. This second book is a fast-pace read with lots of twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat and guessing who the killer could potentially be. Sutton has done many things in her past to hurt people, and Emma is in real danger by trying to solve her sisters murder. However, if Emma wants to clear some names from her suspect list, she too might have to play The Lying Game.
