About:
Ten years after the tragic disappearance of her twin sister Leah, sixteen-year-old Mia Klein still struggles to exist within a family that has never fully recovered. Deep in the dark recesses of her mind lies an overwhelming shadow, taunting Mia with mind-splitting headaches that she tries to hide in an effort to appear okay.

Leah Klein's life as she knew it ended the day she was taken, thrust into a world of abuse and fear by a disturbed captor―"Mother," as she insists on being called. Ten years later, any recollections of her former life are nothing more than fleeting memories, except for those about her twin sister, Mia.

As Leah tries to gain the courage to escape, Mia's headaches grow worse. Soon, both sisters will discover that their fates are linked in ways they never realized.  (Goodreads)

Review:
Talk about a book that starts one way, but then goes in a completely different direction half way through. Not what I expected at all…. Which is why I give it a 3.5 star review.

There are tons of twists and turns in this read, though not all of them are good. The first half of the book is sort of an exciting mystery with a tad of survival thrown in. The second half changes things completely. It sort of reminded me of an episode of Riverdale or Pretty Little Liars…. Just not as good.  The book will probably keep most readers interested throughout the whole thing, even though the characters eventually sort of fall flat.  By the end of the book I didn’t really care about the characters or what happened to them, but I did want to know how the book ended. I guess that means the plot was decent.  This book deals with mental abuse and what it can do to a person. The author does a good job showing this, but the end of the book sort of leaves the reader questioning whether or not one of our main characters is sane. I wish that there was more closure on that part. Overall, this was an ok read. Younger readers or those who have suffered from abuse might be turned off by the premise, but older teens looking for a mystery involving mental health might enjoy this one.
