Stranger With My Face is about Laurie, a pretty high schooler, who is just beginning to gain popularity. She has a popular boyfriend and is about to go to a end-of-the-summer party with him that evening. Unfortunately she gets a 24 hour bug which forced her to stay home. The next day at school everyone insists they saw her out on the beach with another guy, but she wasn't! Soon after all this the story becomes more fast paced as she soon discovers there is someone else with her face who seems to be everywhere. At first Laurie wants to learn more about this girl who she finds out is her sister. She wants to become closer to her and be a real friend to her, but soon Laurie finds out the true evil intentions of her twin. Her own parents won't listen to Laurie when she tries to tell them about what all is happening to her. Her 2 friends believe her and her other sister, who is 8, does too, but is will cost them. Slowly the evil twin begins to eliminate the only 3 believers. The twin then begins to take over Laurie's life.
This book was really good and I definitely recommend it to any of Lois Duncan's many fans. It helps you to realize that it doesn't matter what you look like. READ THIS CREEPY BOOK!!!:)
Stranger with my face is by Lois Duncan. This book is a real thriller! It's about this girl named Laurie who sees herself, but, it isn't really her. When she first encounters this, it was her former boyfriend who claims he had seen her on the beach, but, it couldn't be her because she was at home sick. The second time she encounters this, her dad claims he had seen her go to her room, but, she really was at school. When Laurie finally comes face to face with this imposter, she sees herself in the mirror, but the Laurie in the mirror had her mouth open while smiling but, Laurie wasn't really smiling nor had her mouth open! Therefore, Laurie named that look alike "mirror girl". Throughout the story Laurie finds out that she was adopted from adopted Mom and Dad and she had a twin named Lia. She also discovers she is Navajo and she can use astral projection. Astral projection is when you can leave your mortal body with your soul and go around the world using your soul. But, there is something different about Lia... she's evil!
I like this book because it's a book you can't put down but, keep reading it. I'd recommend this book to any one who likes thrillers. This book is not prolonging nor is it a snore; it's a book you'll love to read! If you want to know why Lia is evil then I suggest you read the book for yourself to discover what Lia's plan really is..!
I was very interested in this book because it kept me wanting to read more and more. The first few chapters were a little slow but after that it just pulled me in and kept me enticed for the rest of the story. I would recommend this book to teenagers because they might be able to relate to Lauries character better than younger kids. I would also recommend it to anyone who likes to be scared from what they read because it deffinatly creeped me out a lot.
