Identical twins. Identical DNA. Identical suspects. It's Pretty Little Liars meets Revenge  in this edge-of-your-seat thriller with a shocking twist.

When they were little, Lexi and her identical twin, Ava, made up a third sister, Alicia. If something broke? Alicia did it. Alicia was always to blame for everything.

The girls are seniors, and they use Alicia as their cover to go out with guys who they'd never, ever be with in real life. But sometimes games just aren't worth playing. A boy has turned up dead, and DNA evidence and surveillance photos point to only one suspect--Alicia. The girl who doesn't exist.

Ava insists that if they keep following the rules for being Alicia, everything will be fine. But Lexi isn't so sure. She must find the truth before another boy is murdered.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "When they were little, identical twins Lexi and Ava made up a third sister, Alicia, to blame for their misdeeds. Now that they are teens, Alicia is the personality they use to pick up boys whom they wouldn't ordinarily date. But when Alicia's dates start being murdered, Lexi begins to suspect that Ava is taking the game too far. Or could Alicia actually be real? Bookish Lexi is a strong main character in this fast-paced thriller. Her narrow focus on getting into Stanford and becoming just like the businessman father she looks up to keeps her from being a spoiled rich girl, unlike her colder sister. By keeping readers from warming up to Ava, Omololu builds the tension, rising from an opening scene of almost date rape and moving through to a desperate race from the police. Though the final resolution is too easy and lacks much of the tautness of the rest of the novel, fans of whom can I trust? mysteries will find much to like here.--Wildsmith, Snow Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Ava and Lexi are foundling identical twins, left on a restaurateur's doorstep as infants and raised by their single father as members of the privileged California beach crowd. They have a habit of slumming with lower-class dates, alternately pretending to be "Alicia," an invented "third twin." When one of those dates turns up dead, Alicia is implicated. Like Omololu's Transcendence, this contemporary thriller takes a long time to get going. A hundred pages in, Ava and Lexi are still hanging out, worrying about their outfits, about not getting into Stanford, and about who's wearing the diamond-encrusted pendant tonight. A murder has happened, and the cops are involved, but more verbiage is devoted to the joys of eating at a food truck than to concern about the law. The narrative is from Lexi's point of view, and she claims to know nothing, as does Ava. Is Lexi unreliable? Is Ava lying? Or is the truth more convoluted? Some readers may not make it far enough to find out, between sluggish pacing and the sisters' sympathy-numbing self-absorption. Ages 12-up. Agent: Sarah Davies, Greenhouse Literary Agency.
