Roundtable Reviews features little more than book reviews and book news. We don't just stick to one genre. We have varying tastes and may be after a heartwarming romance one day, a new adult novel the next, and a creepy horror the day after that. Our book reviews always take one thought into consideration -- Would I pay the asking price for this book?

guessing that young adult readers, ages 14 and up, will enjoy
this novel as much as I did. Lucy Black is an interesting and
intriguing protagonist. Sure, she's just an ordinary teenager, living
with her parents, going to school, and catching the eye of the
school's hottest guy. Or so it seems.
in this novel turns out to be quite what it appears to be. Lucy
didn't start out life as Lucy. In another time, another place, she
was Julia Vann and Julia had twin brother. But a tragedy left Julia
an only child.
as Julia is finally getting used to being Lucy and getting settled
into her new life, a person from her past shows up and starts
following her. Lucy is terrified and wants to know why this figure
from her past has returned.
what is Lucy so scared of? What horrible secrets does her past hold?
I won't tell you! But what I will tell you is that it may not be what
you think and the truth will leave you intrigued and surprised.
well written, intelligent, psychological thriller was one I finished
in one sitting; I just couldn't put it down. Little clues here and
there brought out my inner sleuth as I tried to figure out what
Lucy's dark secrets were and how the story would play out.
