The Third Twin by C.J. Omololu

18135437 The Third Twin by C.J. Omololu

**This review is based on an ARC from Netgalley. It releases on 2/24.

This is the story of identical twins Lexi (Alexa) and Ava….and their made-up third twin, Alicia.  The twins invented Alicia as children to blame when something went wrong and have carried her into their teen years.  They use Alicia to date boys that neither of them would ever take very seriously for real relationships. But, someone begins to kill the boys that “Alicia” is dating shortly after the last time they had contact with her.  This story is told from Lexi’s point of view and is mostly her trying to figure out what is going. Should she possibly even suspect her twin, Ava? Is someone else who looks similar to them out to get them for some reason? When she does find out what is going on, it is shocking to her and the rest of her family/friends.  I will leave it at that, I’m not good at keeping secrets!  Though I found this story a bit predictable, and for some reason it minded me of The Lying Game (show more than books, maybe it’s just the twin thing and all the secrets), it was still an interesting read.  I can guarantee that some of my high school students will grab this one right up, and it would be a good pick for reluctant readers. I will be purchasing for my library and recommending.

My rating: 3/5
