Short summary: The lives of three strangers interconnect in unforeseen ways in this twisted novel about identity and identity theft. Miles is once again on the search for his troubled twin brother Hayden who has been on the run for ten years. Lucy graduates high school and leaves town with her charismatic history teacher to hole up in a long deserted hotel. Ryan fakes his death when he finds out that his uncle is really his father and decides to reinvent his life.
The group's verdict: Everyone appreciated the innovative structure and plot of this one, though some were disapointed that many of the characters never really got closure in their character arcs and that fates were left ambiguous (that didn't bother me though). We spent some time discussing what might have happened to the characters where the story left off, and also about how easy/hard it is to reinvent yourself when you move to a new town where no one knows you. A very thrilling book to read which lead to some interesting chats in our group.
