An edge-of-your seat psychological thriller with a romantic twist

On the three-month anniversary of her boyfriend Flynn’s death, Morgan uploads her only photo of him to FriendShare to get some closure—but she’s shocked when the facial recognition software suggests she tag him as "Evan Murphy." She’s never heard of Evan, but a quick search tells her that he lives in a nearby town and looks exactly like Flynn. Only this boy is very much alive.

Digging through layers of secrets and lies, Morgan is left questioning everything she thought she knew about her boyfriend, her town, and even her parents' involvement in this massive web of lies. (Goodreads)
It’s been three months since the death of Morgan’s boyfriend, Flynn. She is hoping to finally get some closure of his passing by uploading a picture and a final goodbye to him on the popular website Friendshare. But when the facial recognition software on the site suggests that she ‘tag’ him as Evan Murphy, a boy who lives in the neighboring town who looks just like Flynn and is definitely alive, Morgan begins to question if anything she knew about her boyfriend was true.

Morgan was such a great character; so funny and very likeable. Oh, and she loves photography, which made me love her even more. She was also determined to figure out what exactly was going on it her little town and what had happened to her boyfriend, especially after she meets Evan, who looks almost exactly like Flynn. I admired that determination in her. The relationship that forms between Evan and Morgan was super cute as well. There were some pretty awesome secondary characters in the novel also, especially Morgan’s best friend Toni. Seriously, these two girls are the bestest best friends ever, and I adore their relationship.

I really loved the cryptic storyline for the novel. It definitely kept me guessing as I turned the pages, and just when I thought I had figured everything out, Harrington threw in a plot twist and totally threw me off again.  I had my suspicions quite a few times on who the ‘bad guy’ was, but I was totally wrong! At only 288 pages, this book makes for a really quick read. But it wasn’t just the page count that caused me to read the book so quickly, it was the fact that I just couldn’t put the book down! I needed to know what was going to happen!

Overall; I’ve been a fan of Harrington’s for a while now, and this newest addition to her growing book collection definitely does not disappoint! Both the characters and the storyline make this book a really great read. Check it out sometime!

A huge thank you to Penguin and their ‘First to Read’ program for allowing me to read and review this novel!
