A tale of the lost twins filled with many twists and turns. Leading to the characters Scarlet and Ivy. Ivy a 13-year-old girl is forced to be her sister Scarlet by her sister’s headmaster. Because supposedly Scarlet is dead. But soon Ivy tends to believe her sister is alive somewhere hidden from the world. Ivy soon finds clues about her sister through Scarlets lost diary. Ivy tries to find the truth behind her sister missing. Firstly, this turned out to be my most favourite book of all times. On a scale of 0 to 5 this is a 6. Everything of this book was perfect. Each chapter had suspense for the reader. The emotions and characters were clearly visible through the book. With detailed description. Increasing the readers urge to continue the book. This book had each mystery placed in the book to be found by the readers to make the readers desire to read more by solving the mystery with each new clue. I would really recommend this book to other teenagers and readers out their who love mystery books.

An awesome book! I found the beginning a tad bit boring, but after the first two chapters or so, I got interested. This book became so good, I could hardly believe it! I'm not the type of person who reads mysteries, but this one is an amazing one that I loved! As soon as I finished, I put the next book on hold. If you love mysteries, you must read this!
