Review - Dead Ringer By Jessie Rosen

Published 11th November 2015

From the moment Laura Rivers steps foot into Englewood High, she notices the stares—and they aren't the typical once-overs every pretty new girl endures. The students seem confused and…spooked. Whispers echoing through the halls confirm that something is seriously off. “That new girl looks just like her,” they say.

It turns out Laura has a doppelgänger, and it isn't just anyone—it's Sarah Castro-Tanner, the girl who killed herself by jumping into the Navasink River one year ago.

Laura is determined not to let the gossip ruin her chances of making a fresh start. Thanks to her charming personality and California tan, she catches the eye of Englewood’s undisputed golden boy, Charlie Sanders, and it’s only a matter of time before they make their relationship official.

But something is making Charlie and his friends paranoid—and Laura soon discovers it has to do with Sarah Castro-Tanner.

What really happened to Sarah? Why is Charlie unravelling? And how does Laura Rivers fit into it all?

After all, she’s the dead ringer for a dead girl.

I received this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I requested Dead Ringer based on the blurb alone, it sounded exciting and full of mystery and I wanted the answers to all the unanswered questions! I was not disappointed!

Laura is our leading lady and I instantly connected to her character, she's feisty and funny and just a really likeable character. Laura is new to town, it's a fresh start for her a chance to be more confident and outgoing, on her first day the whispers start, people are staring at her. Unbeknownst to Laura she looks like Sarah Castro -Tanner and Sarah's dead! 

We follow Laura as she makes friends, falls in love and turns investigator to find out what really happened to Sarah.

Dead Ringer is full of surprises, it kept me on my toes! There were so many questions I wanted answering, "Why does she look like Sarah?, what happened to Sarah? " I never guessed right and when my questions were finally answered I was shocked. 

Dead Ringer leaves you on a cliffhanger and I can honestly say I'm dying to find out what happens next! Jessie Rosen is an exciting writer that kept me on the edge of my seat turning the pages excitedly! 

Rating: 4/5
