Becca is not happy. She has to pretend to be someone and cannot share her true life with anyone. Becca's father is in jail for embezzlement, and it destroyed their life. Becca and her mom have moved and live a very hidden life. When Becca tries to be normal and apply for a scholarship for college, things begin to unravel. She finds out that she is not even the person she thought she was before, and that someone is possibly still going to try to find her mother and her. The person they find is not the person they suspected and Becca comes up with a plan to beat this person at their own game.
This is a great teen read. Becca is a character that is easy to like. She just wants to be normal, but spends her entire high school life lying to those around her. I like how the book changed into a thriller, I wasn't really thinking that it would go in that direction. Great read.
I borrowed this from the public library
