Another fun read by Lois Duncan. This leans more towards psychological thriller with supernatural elements. I prefer books where there is some mystery element up until the end, that's why it took me 3 days to read around 219 pages.
The reader is fully aware pretty early on that things are not what they seem and the rest of the book is just following the main character trying to piece things together. I did find it frustrating at times because I realized certain things waaaay before the main character did, but this book is so short that I don't think it's detrimental. ( )

This was summer reading for me during middle school ... many years ago. I remember not being able to put it down and becoming fascinated with the paranormal and magik worlds. Interests I carry to this day. ( )

This is a great mystery book I could definitely use for fifth or sixth grade to get someone who doesn't like to read, a good book to start. ( )

I saw the movie version of this book recently and while the most entertaining thing about the movie was. Linda Blair's poofy hairdo the movie was reasonably close to the pot of the book. I found the book more enjoyable. A reasonably entertains YA thriller about a girl who's cousin comes to live with her family after a tragic car accident. Everyone is blown away by the cousin but the story's heroine, Rachel, realises really quickly that something is not right about this new cousin.

Of course no one elevens her and thinks she's just jealous. The story deals with Rachel learning the cousins dark secret and trying to convince her family and save them for the threat.

It's a quick read, with a fairly ordinary teenage lead. She was likeable enough, but there were times when she was rather whiny and annoying but given her circumstances in the story it's kind of understandable. There were times when she was trying to convince her parents particularly there USA something off about the cousin and they simply would not listen. The cousin starts off bland and shy but quickly steals Rachel's friends and boyfriend so naturally parents think she's just jealous.

It was obvious where the plot is going but it was nicely twisty for a YA thriller. A fun read. ( )

This was the only book I had to read for school that I loved! I read this book in tenth grade and loved it! I was so able to connect to the character. The same time I read this book, my rotten, spoiled, selfish cousin lived with me. I so understand how Rachel was feeling. My cousin stole all my sisters friends and everything. My cousin even made my parents take her side all the time. Whenever I use to tell my parents how annoy she is, my cousin would twist it around, and make it seem like I was the mean person. What's even worse was that, I had to share a room with her! When I read this book, I had to laugh because it was so much like my life at the time. This book was amazing! True Story, By the Way. ( )

She was a plain, thin girl with long, black hair that hung halfway to her waist. Her brows were heavy, her face narrow and sallow, but her eyes--even now I cannot begin to describe my first impression of her eyes. They were deep and dark and filled with secrets. Haunted eyes. Haunting eyes. They were the strangest eyes I had ever seen.
